If Mike Francesa’s visceral disdain for soccer didn’t come through clear enough when he stumbled his way through a simple MLS ad read last week, today’s rant aimed at SI for their decision to dedicate the mag’s cover to Lionel Messi and a big portion of its coverage (specifically, as Mike discovers: “Eleven pages!…
Here is a non-comprehensive list of the things Mike Francesa exhibits serious confusion about during what should’ve been a short promo advertising tickets to an NYCFC-NY Red Bulls game: that NYCFC and the Red Bulls are in fact two separate teams; the correct pronunciation of international superstar David Villa’s name;…
Mike Francesa has two sons: Jack and the dreaded Harrison. This is the story of how they manipulated him into ordering last night’s Wrestlemania on pay-per-view:
Mike Francesa has given us many memorable on-air moments, but I’m not sure if he’s ever had an interaction as teeth-achingly awkward as the one he had with Eddie in Queens yesterday:
Thanks to Fox Sports NFL reporter Jay Glazer, we have the answer to one of the great mysteries of the world: How big is Mike Francesa’s dong? Glazer, who interned for WFAN at the start of his career, gave the details to CBS Sports Radio’s Gio and Jones.
Mike Francesa says he will stop his daily radio show on WFAN at the end of 2017. Francesa was a guest on Katie Nolan’s Garbage Time podcast when he revealed his plans to walk away from the show when his contract expires.
Today, Mike Francesa talked Star Wars, and it was glorious. A simple question about how many Star Wars movies George Lucas actually directed led to one of his producers attempting to explain the chronology of the movies, and that’s when things got good:
I don’t think this latest example of Mike Francesa’s utter contempt for his listeners achieves the same level of majesty that 50 Seconds of Phone Scrolling did, but it’s still great:
On his radio show yesterday, Mike Francesa got into it with Assemblyman Dean Murray, who is, for whatever reason, adamant about protecting daily fantasy sports’ non-gambling status. Poor Dean got himself demolished by the Sports Pope.
We take some pride in keeping you, our readers, abreast of Mike Francesa’s shenanigans. So we deeply regret not bringing you this clip when it originally aired back in April. Please accept our sincerest apologies, and please laugh a lot at this video, if you haven’t seen it already.
Sunday morning, a Mets fan known as Will from Queens called into the show, and got himself so worked up about the Mets’ postseason chances that he cried. Mike Francesa brought him back on the show today and surprised him with a ticket to tonight’s game. Will sounded like he was going to cry, again.
Will from Queens was feeling a little emotional yesterday morning, and who can blame him? His Mets are in the playoffs for the first time since 2006, he just watched Ruben Tejada get his leg broken on a dirty play, and Matt Harvey? Don’t even get Will started on Matt Harv—[stifles oncoming sobs]—Matt Harvey, man!
MLB’s selling authenticated champagne bottles and corks from various teams’ locker-room celebrations, as they have in years past. On today’s show, Mike Francesa wanted to look into the going rate for Mets corks. Listeners were blessed to listen to Francesa traversing the online store for these corks, or “cawks,” as he…
Mike Francesa will probably never be able to recapture the brilliance that was 50 Seconds Of Phone Scrolling While Live On The Air, but he deserves credit for yesterday’s sequel, Nearly Three Minutes Of Halting U.S. Open Narration.
Today, Mike Francesa and regular caller Mike in Montclair talked about LeBron cutting his head on a camera and, in a separate event, showing his dick. Since the usual outline of Francesa’s show is “Mike Francesa’s coworkers and callers explain sports to Mike and get his reactions,” Mike in Montclair had to inform the…
I like to think of this as a piece of performance art, called “The Inside Of Your Dad’s Brain.”
You don't call Mike Francesa's radio show unless you are upset, and probably also otherwise damaged in some way. A person who is doing fine, thanks, does not run some avant-garde hear-me-out-Mike trade—Nothing crazy, just Eli Manning for a couple of first-round picks and a couple of second-round picks—past a…
Yankees play-by-play announcer Michael Kay was fuming at radio host Mike Francesa yesterday on his radio show, and called out the Sports Pope after Francesa suggested YES controlled what Kay could and couldn't do.
It's been over two years since sports radio legend Mike Francesa fell asleep while on the air. That was a moment we assumed Francesa would never top, until he once again went ahead and fell asleep, while live on the air, last Friday.
