THE CUBBIES, LOUIE AND ME KILLING MYSELF

If i hear Mike say Cubbies or Louie one more time you may no longer see Lt Sam on this blog because i will have done as Lt Markinson did and put a silver plated pistol in my mouth. Mike, calling the Cubs the Cubbies is not cool for Cubs fans except in the 7th inning stretch. His name is Lou Pinella. Lou. It's already short. It has three letters in it. You calling him Louie does not make us think that you guys are pals.

Another thing.. HIS NAME IS ROY HALLADAY.. NOT DOC! Come on. DOC? Really Mike, stop. What's next BRO-YO for Bronson Arroyo.

Another thing, when you have some guy on the air from Long Beach, how about trying this, just take a shot, humor me. Ask a question that doesn't include your biography in the question, or how about this, ask a question that doesn't take 20 minutes. Or another one, ask a question to a guy from Long Beach probably making the only appearance on NY radio in HIS LIFE, you think maybe this is a thrill for him, well then how about not bringing up the time that he broke CHASE UTLEY'S WRIST. JEEZ.

Can Mike ever get through an interview without using the phrase "ya know that"?

Mike is now bigger than the game itself!!!!


He wants to ban alcohol from football games including the parking lot!

Good Luck with that Mike!

Mike is a douche bag...

Did Mike really say that?
The NFL's two largest sponsors are Miller and Bud. That ain't gonna happen.

Dog mystery guest: David Stern

Mike is a naive bonehead if he thinks alcohol will ever be banned from stadiums. That would be like banning chawin' tabbacky at a NASCAR race.

David Stern to Dog: "Call me the next time you put your foot in your mouth."

Is he really talking about PSLs and parking? He just doesn't get it.

Speaking of nicknames, maybe he'll get Mr. T on from the Jets to talk about this important topic.

Francesa rant picked up by the Sports Business Daily:

Francesa Unhappy With N.Y. Media's Coverage Of Russo's Leave

Francesa Blasts N.Y. Media For
Coverage Of "Mike & Mad Dog" Split
WFAN-AM's Mike Francesa yesterday went on a 23-minute rant during his "Mike'd Up" show "in response to slights and perceived slights over the past month in the wake of his breakup with [Sirius XM Radio's] Chris Russo," according to Neil Best of NEWSDAY. Francesa said of the media's coverage of the split, "Not one person has asked my opinion or has asked to do an interview with me about any part of what happened. ... It did amaze me that in all the media not one person wanted to ask me what I thought about it or my side of the story. Not one." Francesa added, "I hope you don't get your information from the newspapers, because the stuff that has been written during this time about me has been so wrong. ... Stuff about me being jealous and irate about things like that is just totally ridiculous." Francesa, on personalities in the N.Y. media: "Most of them, they're not in love with me and they'd rather see me fall on my head, which I understand. ... But what I can't deal with is a guy like [N.Y. Daily News columnist Bob] Raissman, who, listen, he's been [Russo's] guy for 20 years. ... All he's done is attack and attack and attack and the attacks are to attack me and make [Russo] look good, which is his prerogative." Francesa also said business "isn't bad on this show," as the show "never lost a sponsor, not one, since the change." Francesa added there are "three outlets right now bidding to simulcast this show for five years -- three. And YES is one of them" (NEWSDAY.com, 9/16).

DIFFERENT AGENDAS: Russo's Sirius XM satellite radio show "Mad Dog Unleashed" debuted against "Mike'd Up" Monday, and in Las Vegas, Steve Carp writes it was "hard to tell the difference between the two shows as both hosts were fielding calls on the Mets' bullpen imploding, the Yankees missing the playoffs and the Jets' loss to New England." However, Russo "tried to steer things outside the Big Apple, taking dead aim at NFL referee Ed Hochuli" for his role in the outcome of Sunday's Chragers-Broncos (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 9/17).

I totally agree with the 'Cubbies' - it's annoying. But calling Sweet Lou "Louie" makes no sense at all. That is downright irritating.
Mike just said "Louie came out to argue the call..." And I'm going - who? Who is Louie?
OK - I have watched Lou since the 70's - seen countless interviews with him and about him - player, manager, guest commentator - no one, but no one calls him Louie!
It drives me crazy. I don't know what Mike is trying to prove by insisting on using his 'pet' names.

I just can't stand to listen to that anymore - AWWWG!

One thing I won't miss about Dog is him calling Minnesota's baseball team the "Twinkies." Maybe it was because he can't pronounce "Twins."
