“I’m still gonna be here tomorrow, the next day, the next day, and get paid a fortune to sit here and do this. So, just remember that.” ~ Mike Francesa
But then I realize that I am still listening to this fat idiot babble about all that shit and mail it in and I respect the fuck out of him for it. The fact that me and millions of other people just keep tuning in makes me think he deserves that type of money. Its all about results. And he gets them. People always ask me “Why do you listen to that fat slob?” and the answer is because he’s the most entertaining fat slob out there. I don’t tune into Mike for his genius insight. I tune into Mike to watch Mike. Watching him do radio is more entertaining than the most brilliant, articulate sports genius on any other station. Mike is the show. The prank calls, the tangent stories. The arrogant attitude. Its like the WWF of sports radio. 100 times more entertaining than anything ESPN puts on the air.
