Ken Griffey Jr. gave a painfully awkward interview on SportsCenter

God bless Linda Cohn.  She tried as best as she could to get a decent interview out of Ken Griffey Jr. but he was clearly in another universe.  Griffey appeared on the afternoon live SportsCenter in a promo spot for Upper Deck and Cohn asked him questions about his favorite cards growing up and thoughts on today's MLB.

Griffey's responses were… less than forthcoming.  The former All-Star offered little more than one word answers as you can see in the highlights above and looked like he would rather be anywhere else on the planet.  Griffey said he most wanted to be remembered for his smile.

Uhhh…. about that….
