Missouri Tigers’ postgame interview antics are next level
We’ve seen the occasional pie in the face, and who can forget James Harden’s eye-roll and slide away from the mic?
Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade used to photo (video) bomb each other and try to make one another laugh during their teammate’s time with reporters after victories.
Well, all that may have been trumped last weekend by the University of Missouri Tigers baseball team.
ESPN sure didn’t mind highlighting the shenanigans.
Apparently, while their coach has the headset and is mic’d up to talk with analysts in the booth, they’ve found time to knight a fellow teammate “Game of Thrones” style. Also, while one of the team’s pitchers is speaking with analysts, his buddies perform two mini-rounds of boxing complete with a TKO and “ref” who declares victory by means of a pro wrestling-style 3-count.
Oh — and they had the props including: a sword (baseball bat), boxing gloves, poster for the “ring model” and mouth guards.

That uppercut was nasty!
If you’re wondering, the team pulled the stunts after a 5-2 victory over South Carolina and an 11-0 beatdown against those same Gamecocks the next day.
The Tigers have a 31-15-1 record and are riding the wave of a five-game winning streak.
