What did Marshawn Lynch say about aliens? The former Seahawks RB appeared on Kenny Mayne’s final SportsCenter and the two had an interesting conversation about aliens.

Kenny Mayne had his final appearance on SportsCenter on Monday night and he finished his epic run in style with several fun interviews with familiar athletes.

His interviews with Aaron Rodgers and Marshawn Lynch were particularly entertaining.

Kenny Mayne’s interview with Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers and Mayne have spoken many times on air, and the two caught up on the latter’s final ever SportsCenter.

They chatted about Rodgers’ Green Bay drama, but the interesting part came at the end.

Mayne revealed that last time the two talked, Rodgers had told him to invest heavily in cryptocurrency, which he did, but it hadn’t worked out.

“We’re down 40 per cent,” Mayne said. “Then I lost my job, Gretchen just wants a new comforter, f*** you, Aaron Rodgers.”

What did Marshawn Lynch say to Kenny Mayne about aliens?

After his stellar conversation with Aaron Rodgers, Mayne had a very entertaining chat with the former Seahawks running back.

Mayne mentioned aliens, which set Lynch off on a tangent on how he’d communicate with them if he met them.

He said he would: “Politic with them for a minute and see what they’ve got going on.”

As the show wrapped up, Mayne spoke about his first days at ESPN, the troubles he had with a computer and his first ESPN2 segment he struggled with.

Then he simply said: “Thanks for having me, thanks for having electricity,” and walked off.

Why is Kenny Mayne leaving SportsCenter?

Earlier this month, Mayne tweeted he would be leaving ESPN as a “salary cap casualty”.

He spoke with The Athletic and accused ESPN of asking him to take a 61 per cent pay cut. Mayne said when he refused the offer to take less money, he was shown the door.

“It was a significant pay cut. It was a big pay cut to do essentially the same job. It was a 14 per cent reduction in time worked and a 61 per cent reduction in money earned,” Mayne said.

“I thought the variance was too much. I’m not asking anyone to feel sorry for me. It’s my choice to stay or not stay. It was still a good amount of money in the real world.”
