Jimmy Garoppolo helped keep the 49ers undefeated season alive, but it is the awkward ending to his interview with Erin Andrews that has fans talking. Andrews asked Garoppolo what it felt like for the 49ers to be 8-0, and the Niners quarterback’s response appeared to catch her by surprise.
“It feels good, baby!” Garoppolo responded to Andrews.
Andrews initially appeared taken back by his response and wished the 49ers quarterback a “Happy Halloween” as he walked towards the locker room.
“Happy Halloween right back at you,” Andrews responded while laughing.
A closer look at the interview shows Garoppolo wished Andrews a “Happy Halloween” after she took the mic away which is why she responded with the same close to the interview. Garoppolo walked a few steps then waved back at Andrews as he walked away.
Some fans noted that in the interview it sounded like Garoppolo called Andrews “Baby”, but it is likely that the quarterback was using the term as a figure of speech in describing his excitement.
Garoppolo Threw for 317 Yards & 4 Touchdowns Against the Cardinals on Halloween
It was quite the performance from Garoppolo who threw for 317 yards and four touchdowns while completing more than 75 percent of his passes against the Cardinals. San Francisco and Arizona was the only NFL game on television, so it was also a bit of a statement game for the 49ers. It is hard to fly under the radar when you are undefeated, but the 49ers have not received the same amount of attention as some of the other top teams this season.
Andrews’ Wikipedia Page Was Changed to List Garoppolo as Her Spouse
It is not the first time Andrews has been part of an interview that went viral. It was Andrews who interviewed Richard Sherman when he called out Michael Crabtree after the Seahawks-49ers playoff game in 2014. There was initially some confusion about this interview as well, as some believed Sherman was yelling at Andrews.
Garoppolo had the best game of his season so far, but the subject for many fans after the game was the awkward exchange with Andrews. Many are suggesting Garoppolo was “shooting his shot” with Andrews on national television, while others are defending the Niners quarterback. Only Garoppolo knows exactly what he meant, but someone has already changed Andrews’ Wikipedia page to list the 49ers’ quarterback as her spouse.
Andrews is actually married to former pro hockey player Jarrett Stoll. Garoppolo does not appear to be dating anyone at the moment but admitted he prefers to keep his personal life out of the headlines. In 2018, Garoppolo was famously linked to porn star Kiara Mia.
“I’ve never been very big on being really public with things — even social media,” Garoppolo explained to SF Gate. “I’m not out there a ton. But my life is looked at differently. I’m under a microscope. It’s like [head coach] Kyle [Shanahan] said: It is a good learning experience. I just have to take it in stride.”
