Awk-ward: Reporter calls Mark Sanchez ‘Tim’ during interview session (video)
If things haven’t been tough enough over the past several months for New York Jets incumbent starting quarterback Mark Sanchez ever since the team traded for Tim Tebow, the awkwardness reached new heights during a Q&A session at Jets training camp on Thursday.
The video is a bit short and starts up just as the exercise in awkwardness ensues, but an unidentified reporter erroneously addresses Sanchez as “Tim.” To which, Sanchez, taking it all in stride, simply replies, “I’m Mark.” Well played by Sanchez. That kind of quick thinking on his feet should serve him well as the Jets starter. Well, as long as he is the starter for the Jets, that is. Who knows how this quarterback situation will play out this season.
