Thanks For Taking My Call

Is there anything worse than the callers that tell Mike "Thanks for taking my call?" It happened a little while ago. I mean, really, what are you thanking Mike for? All he is doing is pushing a button. He's not even the person that is screening the call. Why in the world are you thanking him? Do you think he sat there thinking "Oh yeah. That call looks good. Nope, let's skip that one. Oooh, another good one here that we should take.." No, he is not doing any of that. So if you really want to thank anybody, thank Sal Licata or Eddie Erickson for letting you on. But I wouldn't even thank them. That's their job - to let callers get on with Mike, so they don't really deserve thanks either. But now you're left sitting there thinking "If I can't thank Mike, and I can't thank Sal or Eddie, who else can I thank? I really want to thank someone?" Thank yourself. After all, you're the one that spent 57 minutes hitting redial until you got through.

Hey, "It's Mike Francesa's world and we are all just living in it". We should thank him for that.

Hey Mod, I left that "other" site and am now solely with you. I finally blew my cool the day that Mike totally insulted them and they all thanked him for it and assured him in an "open letter" that they were not dangerous.

You are doing a great job. Check out this site for some funny and free football picks. machinepicks.com

Gene, thanks for coming on board. We believe we are dangerous. Mainly to our own home lives and careers.

Full Disclosure: I was Hard to Root For on that other board and was a pretty popular poster.

However, I am all about calling out Mike's arrogance and I think this board is too.

When I saw those people pandering to him, when he was actually insulting them, it was just too much for me.

I told them all to move out of their mother's basements and grow up. The Mod gave me a hand wave so I pointed out his information from "inside sources" that Obama would drop out of the race in March and how the MMD argument was just a contract ploy.

I knew I would be banished and I was.

P. S. Thanks for taking my post.

Gene - Thanks for the info on mf.com. I was banned by them initially and then reinstated. I don't really go back though.

I must be fair with Mike on the thank yous though. Going solo, he
ends calls with 'Thanks for the call'.

I used to be hooked, but now only go to mikefrancesa.com once a week or so. It's become a chat room among 5 or 6 Mets fans.

I left the other site too; if you're not infatuated with the Mets or pisspot jazz musicians who naively spew personal information on the 'Net to people they don't know, there's nothing there.
