VIDEO: Strange, awkward sideline interviews

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's rant against 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree after Sunday's NFC Championship Game lit up the Internet with mostly negative reaction, and it inspired us to think of some other bizarre postgame or sideline interviews that certainly left viewers wondering what had just happened.

Jim Gray vs. Pete Rose

The combative sideline reporter went toe-to-toe with baseball's all-time hits leader in a contentious exchange over whether Rose, banned for life from the game, had actually bet on baseball.

Joe Namath hits on Suzy Kolber

The Hall of Fame quarterback was drunk when he was interviewed by ESPN's Suzy Kolber in 2003. The result was predictably creepy.

Nicole Richie loves Kobe Bryant

This poor sideline reporter should have known what he was getting himself into when he decided to ask the actress who her favorite Lakers player was. Richie's response immediately ended what might be the shortest fan interview in history.

Kevin Garnett's fashion advice for Craig Sager

Sager, the TNT and TBS sideline reporter known for his outlandish taste in suits, was taken to task for a particularly garish outfit by the then-Celtics forward after the NBA All-Star Game in 2009.

Gregg Popovich is not happy

The legendary coach of the San Antonio Spurs looks forward to NBA-mandated in-game sideline interviews with all the excitement of planning a trip to the dentist. In 2012, Popovich's surliness was on full display as he fielded questions from TNT's David Aldridge.

Rick Carlisle's 'Pop' impersonation

Not to be outdone, the Mavericks coach gave ESPN's Chris Broussard one-word answers to two separate questions during a game in 2013.

Nothing to see (or talk about) here

The Chiefs coach had every reason to be happy after his new team won in his return to Philadelphia, where he had coached the Eagles for 13 seasons. But he apparently wanted nothing to do with any questions from ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.
