Mike Francesa Breaks John Tortorella's Firing In Very Mike Francesa Way

Take note, reporters. This is how you announce breaking news:

I don't know what happened...I don't know what happened. I don't know anything yet. I'm shocked to have to admit, I don't know any details of anything.


That quote probably belongs on his tombstone.

Francesa was, somehow, the first person to announce that the Rangers had fired John Tortorella as coach. Jumping onto another WFAN show, dropping the news bomb, then aggressively insisting he had no details or background or context? That's how Mike rolls.

Here's Mike a half-hour later, blasting ESPN's "sources."
