1st and Favre

Well here we are. 55 minutes into the show and it's all Brett Favre. Funny. For a radio station and a host that often bashes the media for talking about Brett Favre too much, one Mike Francesa has jumped right on the bandwagon. Kim Jones rides shotgun today. The duo is dressed in their Wednesday Blacks. Kim going with the underhead Francesa-style headphones. Mike has gotten down to the bottom of this lastest controversy surrounding number 4 by asserting that someone has lied. Wow. That is shocking. Kim thinks Favre is just like us because "he wears Wranglers." Ummm, I don't wear Wranglers. Do you? And even if you did, would an NFL quarterback of Brett's stature really be "just like us." Uhh. No. But Mike and Kim are all over this story. Mike says Favre should have just come clean and admitted he lied. Mike, have you come clean about David Wright? Have you come clean about your utter disrespect for the Rays? Have you come clean about your incorrect statement that the Rays "stood no chance" in Game 7? But anyway, Kim is very worried about how this Favre situation might distract the Jets. That's cute. Mike has nicely segued into the "whole idea of" Brett struggling with the playbook. Mike thinks Brett just wants to "bing bing, run the routes, do this, let's play. He wants the French pastry taken out of this offense." I wonder if Doggie was here, if they would have spent this much time on the Favre thing today...Mike, it's about 3rd and 25 right now...I hope you have some sick play left in your book...

Jesus Christ! Mike stop sweating the Red Sox soooo much. This was the show he should've done on Monday, the day after the series was over. not three days later, the day of the first WS game. Mike is like making excuses for the Red Sox losing, basically saying the Rays were lucky to win.... This is hard to listen to ovuh and ovuh

"If they had added Manny to Youkilis and Pedroia, no way the Rays could get 'em out!"

Who cares!

At least the Favre stuff is over. (Although listening to Glazer wasn't bad)

Glazer was OK, but it would have been a much easier listen if he took a cough drop or two.

And Mike seemed off his game -- he didn't interrupt him nearly as much as he does to other guests.
