After a long week, doesn’t it feel good to relax with Mike Francesa?
Off the heels of the Derek Jeter retirement announcement, I thought it would be fun to revisit the classic Derek Jeter prank call.
Yes, it’s a quick clip, but a golden oldie. This caller (known only by voice) has called Mike on several occasions, where he suggested Yogi Berra take over the Mets, Francesa getting him through prison days, and listening to Mike in the shower.

But, this day he called with a typical hilariously awkward call about a local man in their neighborhood who looks like Derek Jeter and “plays him at parties”.
At first, Francesa is a bit skeptical. There are most likely no Derek Jeter lookalikes at his parties, so he sniffs suspiciously. But, the caller’s unabashed love for Jeter intrigues Mike.
Eventually, when the fee of “beer” and allowing him to “sleep on the couch” is revealed, Mike knows he’s been had.
Mike ends the call with his typical caller downsizing, ” I’ll let you go back to sleep”. Big Mike is no fun.
Have a great weekend everyone and thanks fa da call.
