ESPN's Hannah Storm interviewed J.J. Watt and Lindsey Vonn on The ESPYS' red carpet prior to tonight's awards show. 

It got pretty awkward. 

Watt, up for the "Best NFL Player" ESPY, was asked by Storm how he played through so many injuries last season. The former Wisconsin Badgers' star attributed that to his training staff and his teammates. 

Vonn attributed it to something else. 

"And lots of massages,” she said. “In the groin era.”

Watt got visibly uncomfortable as ESPN executives surely thought about having to pull the plug on the interview. 

Here's video of the sequence:

Many speculated Vonn was intoxicated during the interview. She addressed that on Twitter.
