Baker Mayfield announced to the world that he saw a UFO Wednesday night. The Cleveland Browns quarterback rushed to Twitter after seeing an object fall from the sky and recounted the story. On Thursday, Colin Cowherd took to the air and boldly announced he didn't want his quarterbacks seeing UFOs. He was so adamant in his stance that he decided to interview an expert Friday afternoon, and that's how we got Neil deGrasse Tyson breaking down Mayfield's UFO encounter on The Herd.
Just to get you caught up, here's Mayfield's original tweet:

Honestly, that's an excellent segment. Tyson is the best, he's brilliant, entertaining and has an incredible ability to present complex scientific issues so anyone can understand them. He'd be a great guest on any radio show, even if an NFL quarterback hadn't spotted a UFO this week.
