Come at the Sports Pope you best not miss! What a set of balls hanging from Brendan in Montclair. Do you think Michael Patrick Francesa Jr. came back from retirement to have some caller explain an award Numbah One has been voting on for decades with facts from Wikipedia of all places?!? GET LAWST. Brandon is lucky Mike didn’t hang up on him the moment he talked about giving a history lesson. The Sports Pope is also The History Pope whenever he isn’t talking about sports or the Oscars. You wanna talk JFK or General George Patton? Mike has stories for days, ughkay? And once Mike realized that Brandon didn’t even know who John Heisman was, he unleashed his finishing move, the Handwave From Hell.
First round knockout by The GOAT who somehow even picked up on that Week 13 mistake/troll attempt. To be honest, I feel like every caller is trolling Mike unless they can prove otherwise. Especially one who said he was at the Downtown Athletic Club in 1935. But if you want to waste your time trolling Mike just so he can call you a dope, God bless ya.
Side note- Mike if you are reading this, I say this with complete sincerity to you as a fan and as someone who appreciates all you have done. If you had a train set at your home studio during the Christmas season like you did during the YES Network days, you would definitely get more subscribers on your app. There is just something magical about watching you ream out a caller out as the Polar Express circles around you in the background. And if you put a conductor hat on that magically coifed hair like Bobby Bacala, the Mike’s On servers wouldn’t be able to handle all the new subscribers.
They’ll subscribe for reasons they can’t even fathom. They’ll turn on your app, not knowing for sure why they’re doing it. They’ll arrive at your broadcast as innocent as children, longing for the past. “Of course, we won’t mind if you look around,” you’ll say. “It’s only $8.99 per month.” They’ll pass over the money without even thinking about it. For it is money they have and peace they lack.
