Nick Mangold gave broadcast networks another reason you'll never see an offensive lineman being interviewed in post-game wrap-ups. The New York Jets center photo bombed his quarterback Mark Sanchez while being interviewed on live TV by an NBC reporter after last night's game against the New York Giants.
It seems like the only way that the 300-pound Mangold can get his Grizzly Adams beard in prime-time is to crash Sanchez's interviews. He is making a habit of it. This is the second week in a row Mangold has done it and he is proud of his new-found face-time.
Mangold tweeted about the photo bomb on his Twitter account: "Got another one! I'm 2 for 2."
The camera-hungry Mangold pulled the same stunt last week after a game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
He was joined, for a moment, by another O-lineman, teammate Wayne Hunter, in acting like giddy spectators when the Jumbo tron Fan-Cam is turned on them-- lots of hand waving and silly faces. It's a lot worse when annoying fans do it.
It almost looked like Sanchez was expecting the interruption and didn't break stride in his conversation.
The Jets defeated the Giants, 17-3, in the thrice-scheduled "Battle of MetLife Stadium" in the Meadowlands, so there was a good reason to goof around.
Afterwards, the prankster Mangold made nice with the reporter Bruce Beck by tweeting him: "All in good humor of course."
