I am so f#cking sick of ESPN trying to shove Kenny Mayne down our throats over the last few years. His stupid stories make me want to puke, they're so unfunny and I hate his smug sense of humor. Now they're promoting his new "Mayne Street" thing, whatever that is. I just went to ESPN.com and a video for this show is on the main page!

Kenny Mayne is hosting "SportsCenter." He is on the air in a mere five minutes. Surely he's completely and totally prepared, right? Because that's how any true professional would act.

Oh my God, what a crazy guy! Puke. This guy is such a f'n turd. He has been off sportscenter for like ten years, but is such a loser that he can't move on and get a decent gig anywhere else.

Nope, you are not alone.

That guy seems like a complete dope, and his schtick is not even funny. When they say "coming up next, Kenny Mayne"....i turn the channel as quick as possible.

IMO he is the only ESPN personality worth a shit.

I dunno, I've always thought he was fairly funny. I like his new intraweb stories.

I like about 60% of his pieces. The Sporanos one with the then Cowboys coach and the spoof of the Sopranos final episode is a classic.

Some of his bits are stupid, but the segment where NFL players didn't know how to drink water because they've had waterboys their whole careers was pretty funny.

Yep, same here.

He's done some hilarious stuff. During Culpepper's awesome '04 season, they did a segment on why he got his roll on after every TD, tracing it to a phantom traveling call in 6th grade basketball.

That was a great bit. Another was Jerome Bettis bowling - he rolled from about three yards from the pins.

I understand how some people wouldn't like him, though. You gotta have a silly side to find that stuff funny.

Kenny Mayne is much better than that douchenozzle Trey Wingo

I've said it before, but when Craig Kilborn (who's actually funny) left ESPN and got his own show everyone else thought they could do the same. Problem is, everyone Kilborn left behind are comedic hacks who THINK they're funny.

Wasn't Kenny Mayne a backup QB at UNLV behind Randall Cunningham?

I'm not saying some of Mayne's skits aren't funny... but I find him totally annoying and wouldn't be sad if I never saw another one of his pieces.


Then again, I have always enjoyed Chris Berman, yet it seems everyone else hates him...

IIRC, Mayne was the backup, but Cunningham was the 3rd stringer.

There was only one year they were there at the same time, Mayne's senior year, and Cunningham's freshman year.

Absofreakinglutely not.

The only time I've ever seen him is on NFL countdown, but it is brutally aweful.

I think he is funny. Ryan howard hits the ball over some fencing they set up out there.

I miss NFL primetime.... "The Blitz" just isn't the same.

Actually I miss the NFL network.... "ESPN" just isn't the same.

You guys still watch ESPN? You mean when there aren't games on?

I'm on Thanksgiving break and there's nothing else to watch. Luckily NFL Films is on now, I love that show.

I actually like Kenny Mayne. He doesn't have any retarded catch phrases that most other ESPN "anchors" tend to overuse. But there are two other anchors that I hate. I can't stand Chris Berman. That guy is a total douche. Every time I have to listen to him I want to punch him in his big, fat face. I also hate Emmitt Smiff. That assclown can't even talk in complete sentences. He may have been a great running back, but he sure is terrible as a broadcaster.:cuss:

He brings a little comedy to the table though, unintentionally I must add.
