....and for the record, it "happened" to me twice on interviews in the last 10 years. The first was a faceplant interviewing Warrick Dunn (his mother died in the line of duty as a police officer) and the second was Morgan Pressel whose mother died after a tough battle with cancer.
I'm an idiot, and clearly didn't do my prep. That's all on me.
Bobby Bowden, meanwhile, is 83. I think we have our answer there.
Big kudos to Chris Spielman, who handled the awkward moment with grace. A true gentleman's moment.
