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.
I don’t expect you to listen to all 20 minutes of this, but you really don’t need to. Just skip around to any moment, and you’re likely to hear a very fired-up Francesa dropping some kind of hilarious burns. A sampling:
- “IF I GO TO THE RACETRACK, I DECIDE WHICH HAWSE I’M GONNA BET. IS THAT A GAME OF CHANCE OR A GAME OF SKILL?”
- “MAN, YOU ARE EMBARRASSING YOURSELF!”
- “YOU TALK LIKE A REGULAR POLITICIAN! THAT’S WHAT’S EMBARRASSING! YOU DON’T KNOW HOW A BOOKMAKER OPERATES!”
- “DO YOU UNDAHSTAND WHAT PARIMUTUEL WAGERING IS?”
Trust me, this is the good shit.
