Where's Bob Costas when you need him?
We were supposed to witness an interview between CBS Evening News' Armen Keteyian and Penn State receivers coach Mike McQueary on Tuesday following the Penn State scandal.
Instead, McQueary was about as receptive to Keteyian as you would be to a door-to-door salesman.
Here's the entire interview, which lasted less than 25 seconds:
Keteyian: Do you have any idea when you might be ready to talk?
McQueary: If this process doesn't play out, I just don't have anything else to say.
Keteyian: OK, and then just one last thing...Just describe your emotions right now.
McQueary: Uh, all over the place. Just kinda, uh, shaken.
McQueary: Crazy, ha.
Keteyian: And you said, what? Like a...
McQueary: Snow globe.
Keteyian: Like a snow globe.
McQueary: Yes sir.
Excuse me...did CBS Evening News actually schedule an interview with McQueary? Did he even know about it? Seems to me like they almost ran up to him and caught him unawares and decided to call it an interview.
Let me get this straight. After Costas grilled former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky for allegedly sexually abusing eight young boys in a period of 15 years on Monday, all we know about McQueary, who allegedly saw Sandusky raping a 10-year-old boy in one of Penn State's locker room showers, is that his emotions are "all over the place"..."like a snow globe."
Boy, I'm so glad we got to see that. Informative indeed.
Perhaps McQueary changed his mind at the last second, realizing the plight of Sandusky when he sounded bad talking with Costas. Maybe he really didn't go to the police after the 2002 incident, as he wrote in an email to a former classmate.
All this interview did was turn me off to snow globes for the rest of my life.
Thanks for ruining Christmas, too, Mr. McQueary.
