BREAKING NEWS

Associated Press - Van Halen to record the new Mike'd Up jingle. For any listeners who just heard host Mike Francesa playing some sample jingles for his new show, Francesa was enamored with one in particular. The jingle, which played on the words "Mike'd Up" had a certain familiar sound to it. Van Halen just confirmed that the jingle was in fact not a rip-off of "Right Now" but actually that the original lyrics to "Right Now" were "Mike'd Up" named after founding bassist Michael Anthony. Lead singer David Lee Roth said "We are proud that the song is being used in its' original version for something as rocking as Francesa on the Fan." Once again, for those that were crying rip-off at home, you need not worry.

"North Carolina is not even a good team"

Does tubby know that North Carolina's coach is Butch Davis?

Yea he definitely does, but i think in his world North Carolina means Mike Francesa. But i am loving the fact that he is ripping RU cause i had been saying that since i was an undergrad there just a short time ago. I'd been saying the same thing to the student body for years.

Maybe they'll call it "Eating with the Tubby" and he'll talk about his dinner from the night before. That should be long enough to cover a 6 hour show.
