Video: Kenny Mayne hilariously drops F-bomb on Aaron Rodgers

Kenny Mayne

Kenny Mayne on Monday hosted his final “Sports Center” before he parts ways with ESPN. He was able to lock up an interview with Aaron Rodgers for his farewell show, which led to a funny goodbye.

In typical Kenny Mayne fashion, the TV host reminded Rodgers about how the Green Bay Packers quarterback advised him in their prior interview to invest in cryptocurrency.

“I did (invest in crypto),” Mayne told Rodgers. “We’re down 40 percent. Then I lost my job. Gretchen just wants a new comforter. F— you, Aaron Rodgers.”

Here’s the great clip:

That was said and delivered in perfect Mayne fashion. His wry humor is exactly why Rodgers and so many others love him.

Mayne, 61, had been at ESPN since 1994. He termed himself a “salary cap casualty” when it came to him parting ways with the network. At least he is going out with a laugh. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him back one day.

One of ESPN’s most familiar and longest-serving faces will be leaving the network.

Kenny Mayne, who has been at ESPN since 1994, announced Monday that he will be departing the network. Mayne referred to himself as a “salary cap casualty,” and did not give any hint as to what he has planned next.

Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported that ESPN had asked Mayne to take a pay cut in order to remain with the network, which he declined to do.

Mayne became familiar to sports fans through his dry sense of humor and his numerous appearances as an anchor on “SportsCenter.” He has hosted numerous other programs for the network, including the popular web series “Kenny Mayne’s Wider World of Sports.”

There have been plenty of big changes at ESPN in the last couple years, with plenty of network stalwarts departing for various reasons. Mayne is just the latest in that department.
