After a long week doesn’t it feel good to relax with Mike Francesa?
After a long hiatus comparable to Mike’s summer vacation, the Fridays with Francesa segment is back!
This week’s edition touches on an important part of the Mike’s On experience-prank calls. Nothing annoys the big guy more than wasting time on his show that’s he been doing for a very long time, which he has broken down from years to seconds.
Anyways during a show years ago, the Pontiff was just doing his best to get us the sports anyway that he can, when someone(s) wanted to make a mockery of the mass.
Off the bat, the prankster tries to slip a subtle hint of things to come with a switch of the old adage by declaring himself a “first time listener,long time caller”. Either Francesa didn’t pick up on it or just ignored it. Many times it’s hard to tell.
Mike in Brooklyn goes on to blabber about some trivial sports radio dribble concerning Yankees fans and Mets fans, but it’s just an appetizer. He extends the ruse as a “Yankee point” to eventually ask if Zaun knows Pee-Wee Herman is back.
Predictably, Francesa has no use for Pee-Wee, Chairy, Jambi, or Cowboy Carl. Don’t even get him going on “The Word of the Day”. Even more predictably, Mike then lists a number of philanthropic activities that the caller should invest their time in, besides calling his show.
After Mike gets “rid of em” the tomfoolery is over. Only hardhitting sports analysis, head scratching trades, and dead air from here on out.
The next caller is in such delightful glee over the return of Pee-Wee that he just had to call Mike as well. And of course, Mike finishes that up with the idea kids being out of school and calling his show. Speaking for myself, when I left school for the day, my first intentions were NOT to call Mike Francesa.
Regardless, Mike criticizes the producer for words that come out of callers mouthes and the show goes on. Just another day in the life.
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the call!
