Liam Neeson

Cusses on 'SportsCenter'

I Don't Know Football

Liam Neeson appeared on "SportsCenter" yesterday to talk football -- problem is, he doesn't know a damn thing about the sport ... and when he realized the interview was being aired live, he totally dropped an S-bomb.

Neeson is currenty on a hardcore promotional tour for his new movie "Taken 2" ... and someone thought it would be a good idea to let ESPN grill him about the NFL.

After the first question, a stumped Liam said, "Ok, we better start again -- can we? Are we live? Oh, sh*t."

When the anchor continued to press ... asking about Tim Tebow, the replacement refs and the 49ers ... Neeson responded, "See, you're speaking ancient Arabic to me buddy ... I swear to you ... I just don't understand the game."

For the record, Neeson -- who grew up in Ireland -- says he's a huge sports fan ... especially when it comes to boxing, basketball and hurling ... which was apparently an Olympic sport back in 1904.

It's nice to see an intelligent person giving a normal response to a question about professional sports: I have no idea what you are talking about since I don't waste my time on such crap.
