Nick Saban got awfully irritated when technical issues prolonged his halftime interview

Alabama head coach Nick Saban expects everything to go smoothly on game days, and that doesn’t just include what happens on the field.

He prefers to answer his mandated halftime questions and quickly make his way to the locker room for mid-game prep. So, as you probably could have predicted, Saban wasn’t too pleased when some technical issues with ESPN’s headphones kept him on the sidelines longer than he would have preferred.

The awkward scene took place during Friday’s Rose Bowl Game between Alabama and Notre Dame when Saban was handed some headphones for his social-distanced interview with Allison Williams. As Williams started her question, Saban threw his hands up out of annoyance and said, “I can’t hear you.”

Then, he ripped off the headphones to try to hear the question again through the stadium noise.

When he couldn’t hear the question that time, Saban was about ready to walk away from the interview. But he was assured that the headphone audio was fixed and reluctantly put the headphones back on to hear the question. He was so annoyed.

This is going to become a meme. It seems inevitable, really.

The Rose Bowl halftime interview put up more of a challenge to Saban than Notre Dame did in 30 minutes of game time.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
