Russo has been conspicuously quiet after Mike threw his hissy fit the other day and threw Doggie under the bus with his 'My cock is bigger than his cock' proclamations. So I was wondering if Russo got some sage advice to take the high road. Apparently, when Mel Karmazin first recruited Russo, he saw how things would play out and how Chris should handle it. This is what he must have said:
I think you're gonna find -- when
all this shit is over and done -- I
think you're gonna find yourself
one smilin' motherfucker. Thing is
Chris, right now you got ability.
But painful as it may be, ability
don't last. Now that's a hard
motherfuckin' fact of life, but
it's a fact of life your ass is
gonna hafta git realistic about.
This business is filled to the brim
with unrealistic motherfuckers who
thought their ass aged like wine.
Besides, even if you went all the
way, what would you be? King of the afternoon?
Who gives a shit? I doubt you can even
get a credit card based on that.
Mel lays an envelope full of money on the table in front of
Chris. Chris picks it up.
Now when Mike rips you for the first
time, you may feel a slight sting, that's pride
fuckin' wit ya. Fuck pride! Pride
only hurts, it never helps. Fight
through that shit. 'Cause a year
from now, when you're kickin' it
on satellite radio you're gonna say,
"Mel Karamazin was right."
I got no problem with that.
