Ok, i just listened to the open to Mike'd Up, Francesa on the Fan. Wait.. MIKE, pick a name, which is it. Are you Mike'd Up or are you Francesa on the Fan? Is it because you have all those number 1 shows that this show needs two names? PICK A NAME, PLEASE. Maybe the jingle company is having trouble because it's hard to do a jingle for a show that has two f**ing names!!!
Back to the open, did you know that the Mets lost last night? WHAT, you say, the Mets didn't lose, they hung in there and once again after a devastating loss someone won a game that you thought they were certain to lose. Mike decided to not feature any of the positive parts of the Mets win and instead focused on bad baserunning and a failed bunt. Were these storylines? Of course. Are they the only thing worth talking about? Absolutely not. If the pinstripe team from the Bronx went through this we would hear about karma and mystique, but it's the Mets so we hear only about mistakes. THEY WON THE GAME. THEY WON THE GAME. They are tied for the wild card and one game out. That's pretty good considering this is a team that fired their manager mid season, lost their closer, has blown 1700 saves. Usually a team like that is packing their bags for the winter, but the METS ARE STILL IN IT. Give it a rest Mike
Next, WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH MIKE AND THE PHILLIES? Did I miss something? Let me know, it may have been when i was viewing the Real World Road Rules Challenge, but are the Phillies some combination of the 27 Yankees, the 1998 Yankees, Bill Russell Celtics, John Wooden's Bruins? Just tell me, I could have missed it. If not, why the hell does Mike seem to believe that this team will never lose? He has yet to own up to the fact that the Phillies lost two of three to the Braves who he said Philly would kill. He now guarantees that Philly will take care of business against the Nationals. YES, the Nationals are bad. But they still play the games, Mike. They actually play them. On a field. With people. With bats and balls and gloves. It's really fun. They've made some cool movies that show it happening. MIKE, YOU ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY. THE PHILLIES MIGHT LOSE SOME GAMES HERE. THEY ARE ACTUALLY PLAYING NOT GREAT BASEBALL. GIVE IT A REST.
Finally.. 10 FT, 15FT, 30FT.. What are these? According to Mike, Ryan Church was out by all of these lengths for the play at the plate in last nights game. First it was 30ft, then it was 15ft, then it was 10. WHICH IS IT? You might be saying, LT WEINBERG, why does that bother you so much? IT JUST DOES. THE DUDE JUST ISN'T CLOSE SOMETIMES. And if any of you fans described things the way he does you would get hand waved into the abyss.
WE ARE BACK AND ON IT TODAY. THANKS FOR HOLDING DOWN THE FORT.
