Erin Andrews Has Had Plenty of Memorable Sideline Interviews. Was Richard Sherman's the Best?

ACC Basketball Tournament - Florida State v North Carolina

Erin Andrews, as you certainly know by now, found herself on the receiving end of Richard Sherman’s WWE promo last night. She had the microphone, and Sherman had just made a play against hated rival Michael Crabtree to catapult Seattle into the Super Bowl. Sherman screamed. The internet howled.

Andrews, the most prominent sideline reporter in sports, has had several interesting/awkward moments on the job. Everyone has. Where does the Sherman encounter stack up?

After the Red Sox won the 2013 World Series, Andrews was interviewing David Ortiz. At the 1:40-mark, she hands him the mic to address Boston one last time and implores him to keep it cleaner than after his post-Marathon bombing speech where he famously said, “This is our bleeping city.”

Collateral Damage in a Gatorade Bath

More 2013 Red Sox. Speaking with Jarrod Saltalamacchia after he had a walk-off hit to beat the Tigers, Andrews was unable to avoid getting drenched by the Gatorade bucket. She would later talk to Jimmy Kimmel about the harrowing incident.
