New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was playfully smacked in the rear end by offensive lineman Willie Colon while in the middle of a live sideline television interview during last Saturday's NFL preseason game at MetLife Stadium. Sanchez had completed his work for the day and was taking part in an interview with a WCBS sideline reporter when his teammate Colon snuck into the frame and whacked him in the behind.
