Merriman Walks Out of ESPN Interview
December 11th, 2013| by Lost Lettermen
During Shawne Merriman’s Tuesday appearance on ESPN’s “Highly Questionable,” co-hosts Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones learned that the former Maryland star and three-time NFL Pro Bowler lost two homes to fires while growing up. This being an interesting story, Le Batard and Jones naturally asked Merriman several questions about it.
Which, evidently, Merriman did not appreciate (even though he seemed to have no problem answering the initial questions about it). At a random point in the interview, Merriman simply got up from the remote studio he was taping it from and left.
Perhaps he’s brushing up on his theatrics in preparation for his hopeful second career as a WWE wrestler. Whatever the reason, the looks on Jones’ and Le Batard’s faces afterward were priceless.
