Power Ranking of ESPN’s Best F Bombs
1. After casually using the word s — three times when appearing with Peyton and Eli Manning on their Monday night football MegaCast last night, former Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch closed his segment by dropping the f-bomb.
While hearing a curse on cable TV isn’t a big deal, it’s still a bit shocking when a mean word is used on Disney-owned ESPN.
However, Lynch isn’t the first person to use the four-letter swear word on ESPN. So, without further ado, here are the best examples of someone saying the f-word live on ESPN.
5) DORIS BURKE: It was subtle and pronounced rather than said out loud, but seeing the imperturbable Burke get angry after missing a few lines was fun.
4) KENNY MAYNE: Unfortunately, this one was paged, but hearing Mayne say “F — you” to Aaron Rodgers because of some questionable financial advice on his last. Sports center made for a great time.
3) MARSHAWN LYNCH: If you watched Lynch’s entire cameo with Peyton and Eli on Monday night, you knew it was all about when – not if – he’d drop the f-bomb. And he delivered perfectly.
2) LEE CORSO: When the GameDay College the legend struggled to put himself on a mascot’s head during the picks segment of the show, the frustration was just too strong and he let us know by saying, “F — it ! ” much to the shock and amusement of his co-hosts. Just a great TV moment.
CORSO BONUS: The above f-bomb incident is not the only example of Corso’s overalls on GameDay College.
1) CHRIS BERMAN: Maybe that shouldn’t matter since it didn’t technically happen on air, but the column is called “Traina Thoughts” so we follow my rules. It was one of many leaked videos of Berman during breaks from Monday night football and boy, oh boy, did he let the curses fly.
2. Dan Patrick has many qualities that make him an excellent interviewer. One of them is his calm and relaxed demeanor. That tone seemed to lull USC quarterback Carson Palmer to a sense of security yesterday when he casually mentioned that one of the coaches USC is interested in is Steelers coach Mike Tomlin.
3. Jaylen Brown unloaded a monster dunk on the Hornets Miles Bridges last night.
The best part, however, wasn’t the dunk. That was the reaction of Brown’s teammate Jayson Tatum.
4. Everyone hates the Yankees and the Red Sox, but the most watched Major League Baseball playoff game so far is the New York-Boston wildcard game.
5. This was tweeted yesterday shortly after posting Traina Thoughts and 24 hours later I’m still in awe that Kyle Orton has been considered a legend by a real human being.
6. This week’s episode of Sports Illustrated Media Podcast hosted by Jimmy Traina presents a pair of interviews.
