Nearing the end of a solo Russo show today and I have to say that Chris, much like rocking a baby to sleep, has lulled me into a catatonic state today. I just want to take a nap. Personally I have always prefered Dog solo to Mike solo. He is usually more engaging, better with the callers, full of energy. But today has been an exception to that. It has been a very tame show. No juice. No guest spots. Nothing. It has me thinking if solo Mike is perhaps a more "entertaining" show. Not that Francesa himself is more entertaining, but usually when he is solo, he will make bold statements without anyone there to refute them, his arrogance will be off the charts, he'll hand wave callers away at a rapid pace. And typically I will become quite annoyed listening to his pompous attitude. And that, in essence, creates a more entertaining experience. I don't know. After today's snooze-fest, I think I might be switching my vote to solo Francesa as the better show***
***Editor's note: The first full segment during a Francesa solo show on his experiences at Saratoga Springs this summer will place me back in Dog's corner.
