Former NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman has led a very interesting life. Not only was he a Pro Bowl linebacker for the San Diego Chargers, but he led a life off the field that garnered some attention, from dating a social media socialite, to having his house burn down to the ground which forced him to live in a shelter.
But when Merriman sat down for an interview on Dan Le Betard and Bomani Jones’ ESPN2 show Highly Questionable this week, another interesting chapter was written in his life. We’ll call the title of this chapter “The One Where Shawne Walks Out On an Interview and No One Knows What Happened”.
That’s exactly what happenedin a very bizarre incident that left host Le Betard in sheer shock.
We don’t know why the interview ended, we don’t know how long Merriman thought he was going to be there but when he wanted to leave, he left and he did so in a manner that gave us an absolutely priceless reaction from Dan Le Betard.
We’re not sure what’s better here, the fact that Merriman called the shots on a show he was the guest on or the fact that Jones and Le Betard sat in stunned silence for a good five seconds, not sure what to do or what was happening. No one really knows what happened but what we do know is that this was a awesomely awkward thing we’ve seen all day.
