1-9-15 Fridays With Francesa-Mad Dog Bathtub Edition


After a long week, doesn’t it feel good to relax with Mike Francesa?

This week’s installment shies away from the normal egotistical Francessa rhetoric and instead focuses on what a truly awful father Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo is.

At a most likely unlistenable remote show in 2006, Russo decided to open upabout a recent unfortunate incident involving his then two-year old son.


Amidst the go-go action that only a golf affair can provide on television, he needed to bathe his kids. In the hopes of killing two birds with one stone, he instructed his older, but still very much a child, son to draw a bath. Chris could simply not be pulled away from a Sergio Garcia tee off. It’s a once in a lifetime event that can’t ever be duplicated.

All the while Francesa sits and ,rightfully so, chastises the actions of Mad Dog. Oh, and interrupted him approximately eight times. It’s his calling card.

Anyways, when the moment of bath time comes, Chris doesn’t check the temperature of the water and then proceeds to place his two-year son in scalding hot water. According to him, to make matters worse (because burning a small child isn’t bad enough), the golf mysteriously disappeared from all his channels and the only thing left was something called “Home American Videos”.

I’ve never heard of this show, but it obviously wasn’t at the top of Mad Dog’s list of favorites.

And just in case this all wasn’t enough, Chris couldn’t figure out why his kid didn’t want to go back in the water.

Oh and that whole telling the world this occurred due to your own negligence probably wasn’t the smartest idea. And by Mad Dog’s admission, yes, this was a “TRUE STORY”

Have a great weekend everyone! And thanks for the call!
