'Chevy Guy' overshadows Bumgarner's MVP moment

With the World Series on the line Wednesday night in Kansas City, San Francisco ace Madison Bumgarner came on in relief and tossed five shutout innings to deliver the Giants their third World Series title in five years.

He could not have been cooler under pressure.

The same can't be said for the man who presented Bumgarner with the World Series MVP trophy.

Chevrolet representative Rikk Wilde — or "Chevy Guy" as he was quickly dubbed on social media — fumbled through his lines as he tried to work through the advertorial elements ("technology and stuff?") of the sponsored trophy presentation.

MLB commissioner Bud Selig, a former car salesman himself, did not look impressed.

We feel for you, Rikk. It's a tough spot that the company didn't make any easier with that interminable script.

And, hey, your World Series probably still went better than Royals manager Ned Yost's.
