SportsCenter has seen its fair share of lowlights and bloopers this year, but the above video is ESPN's Event Horizon.  It's so brutally awkward, cringeworthy, and amazing it has to be seen to be believed.  Anchor Mike HIll interviewed actor Liam Neeson, who appeared on SportsCenter yesterday to promote his movie "Taken 2."  By itself, this is nothing new, celebs come to SportsCenter all the time.

Naturally, the first place Hill went with Neeson was the New York Jets and Tim Tebow.  Because to do otherwise would be to send Planet Earth hurtling out into deep space, never to return to the solar system we once called home.  Neeson's reaction is the most priceless thing I've seen in sports this year.  He asks to start the interview over and depressingly says "oh ****" because he has no idea what Hill is talking about.  

Neeson is from Northern Ireland and was at the Jets-49ers game Sunday, but it was only his second NFL game ever.  When Hill presses with the mandatory Tim Tebow question, Neeson says "you're speaking ancient Arabic to me buddy."  What a brilliant response.  Once Hill gets to sports Neeson knows a thing or two about, the interview turns around and is actually pretty good.

But when you're at ESPN, you can't talk enough Tebow... even to people who have no idea who he is.

Doug Gottlieb on his time at ESPN: "I was told specifically, you can't talk enough Tebow."
