It has only one member. The name of this team is Mike Francesa. Take a night like tonight. I find myself not rooting for a particular team, I find myself rooting against the things that Mike Francesa says. On the show today he stated how the Phillies are gone, that the Mets couldn't even see their license plate, they passed them by so fast. He also stated that the Phils never lose to the Braves and will not do so. So tonight I find myself rooting against Francesa or against the words of Francesa or better yet for his declarations to be proven false and tonight, that's just what happened.
The Phils lost to the Braves and the Mets won and the two teams are just a little bit closer and perhaps the Mets can actually read that license plate.
The thing that continues to kill me about Mike is that he is a man who has worked in sports his entire career, has been a fan for his whole life, he has seen 'Nova beat Georgetown, the Red Sox come back from down 3-0, Team USA beat the Russians. He has witnessed all of this, yet he still speaks about sporting events as if their endings are predetermined. Sports doesn't work that way. He should know that. Yet he would rather declare things as fact, as if he knows something we don't and then he rarely, if ever admits he's wrong.
Tonight, was a good night. The declaration didn't come true. Another loss for my least favorite team.
