KING MIKE

It was a no caller day. So Mike Francesca officially avoids the issues. They dazzled us with guests and talk of movies about Henry the VIII and even mentioned the name Scarlett Johanson. This was sure to set us off the scent. How could we even talk to him about the Rays in August when we were bombarded with Eli Manning and David Tyree and mentions of Natalie Portman and Scarlett J?

Now he is gone. Like the final sips of Diet Coke through a straw. Gone, vanished before you even fully tasted it's gas. Yes, no more Mike this week, he is back on vacation, back hiding, wasting time in hopes that Tampa will hit the skids and the Yankees with Bronson Arroyo on lead guitar strumming their way into first. Yes, he is waiting.. waiting for the return so he can utter not five but four words... From the top of his throne, just like that King Henry those Boelyn sisters fought so fiercely for.. he will proclaim it for all to know, perhaps on August 11th.. the words dropping down to us common folk, as he looks at the standings and see Red Sox, Yankees, Rays and laughs and says...

I TOLD YOU SO...

Like Kevin Spacey said in "The Usual Suspects" -- "And like that [modified hand wave, ironically] ... he's gone."

I caught the end of the Ferrell show and he made mention of Russo to Satellite. Did I miss something?

Well noted first time. Mikey tawked about Petite's win today as if it were an utter foregone conclusion. I was gonna wait for football season to start picking exactly the opposite of mike, but really, why wait...the strength of the bet is inversely proportional to how dismissive mikey is about the prospect it might not happen.
