Hunter Pence, Erin Andrews had awkward postgame interview (Video)
Hunter Pence, the voice of the 2014 San Francisco Giants, had a pretty awkward exchange with Erin Andrews after his team won Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night. When Andrews said that Pence told reporters the theme of the pregame speech would be “there’s nothing to fear,” he had to make sure she got her facts straight.
“Well, that wasn’t the message,” Pence said. “And I wasn’t the spreaker, it was actually (Giants closer Santiago Casilla). His whole thing was, ah…”
Andrews, clearly rattled by Pence correcting her, then interrupted and insisted that he said “there’s nothing to fear” was the theme as the Giants were set to take on the Royals, who hadn’t lost a game in the postseason prior to Tuesday.
“No, I said make your peace with the king of kings and go out there and enjoy it,” he said. “My bad, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to correct you there. Casilla just said to believe. I guess that’s more of the theme — believe, have vision.”
Andrews ended the interview by thanking Pence for correcting her and saying, “You know I love it.” It was the second time in less than a minute that she said “I love it.”
Yeah, so, that was awkward.
