Former NFL All Pro linebacker Shawne Merriman appeared on ESPN2's afternoon talk show "Highly Questionable" on Tuesday. In the middle of a seemingly benign interview by co-hosts Bomani Jones and Dan Le Batard he took off his mic and walked away.
The reactions by Bomani and Le Batard are priceless. I don't think shocked does it justice.
There are three possible reasons for Merriman walking away:
1. He was sick of these two third rate scrubs asking him stupid questions about his past.
2. He thought the interview was over for some reason.
3. It is a publicity stunt get draw attention to his charity (which was the reason he was on the show).
Either way, it was a weird exit. Calm and apologetic.
