Ken Griffey Jr.'s hilarious, impossibly awkward ESPN interview

Ken Griffey Jr. appeared on SportsCenter for Upper Deck's 25th anniversary, and woo boy did it get weird! The whole thing is worth watching, but here are our favorite moments from this bizarre interview in GIF form.

(1) His "How ya doing Ken?" Face


(2) His "I don't have a second favorite baseball player" face.


(3) His "Nope" face.


(4) His "I promise I'm definitely listening to this question" eyes.


(5) His "I am so done" face.

Griffey apologized to Linda Cohn on Instagram and on the phone.

I want to apologize to Linda for the way things went today. I was in the middle of a cough attack and felt a little ill and didn't want to walk off the set. Linda has always been professional to me and my family . I'm sorry, Junior @espn @sportcenter @lindacohn

Linda, the real star of all this, handled it like a pro.
