My Kim Jones Theory

So kind readers of this blog...I have really been trying to wrap my head around the past few days of Mike'd Up, Francesa on the FAN. Besides the fact that I am still not sure which of those titles is actually the name of the show, I find myself trying to analyze the whole Kim Jones scenario. There has been this weird vibe that I have been unable to put my finger on in relation to having Kim on the show. Mike has certainly reduced his level of arrogance around her. He has tried to come off more human. Don't get me wrong - he still makes it known that this is HIS show...he leads off every segment, he jokingly scolded Kim and Chris for walking in late after a break (yes, the hypocritical nature of that is insane) and he certainly guides the conversations. But there has been something more in the dynamic of Mike and Kim particularly that has had me trying to dissect it.

For two days, I have had the feeling that somehow I have seen this act before...Older authoritative male figure in a position of power recruits a somewhat unproven female to be his sidekick...They come under great scrutiny...People are enamored with the female in the relationship...She seems to provide a much needed boost for the male authority figure...Almost makes you feel like a father/daughter relationship...but she can be feisty...and he becomes enamored with her...Let's face it...he's tough to look at...she's not...he looks like he might keel over at any moment...she is spry and has quite a following....

Well, have you figured it out yet? Because I just did. This whole Mike Francesa/Kim Jones things reminds me very much of John McCain/Sarah Palin...And I've got to say, that somewhere deep down, Mike thinks about this too. He models himself after McCain...a strong figure. And he finds Palin charming as could be. So perhaps he thinks that Kim Jones is his Sarah Palin.

How does this all end? Talk to me in November.

Nice job, you're endings are hilarious too.

Well, there's similarities and differences between Sarah and Kim. While one knows what she's talking about, the other speaks out of her ass and comes off as a charming bitch.


...And they're both hot. But I'd take Kim Jones over Sarah Palin anyday.

Honestly, just make a blog about how hot Kim Jones is. You know you want to make it, JUST DO IT.

Kim is cute (not hot, cute) and knows she's going to be given more latitude than Carlin or, for that matter, anyone who isn't a well-built blonde. She can argue with Mike and he'll go easy on her. Put her words in a man's mouth, and Mike would be on him like a pit bull on a poodle.

Hey Steve shit face, Kim Jones IS HOT. Don't say she isn't, because you are wrong. Now go fuck a goat.

No one cares what you have to say about women, Loki. You just worry about losing your virginity, and leave the posting to the adults.

I think your Palin/Jones this is not a but likely or relevent. What you hinted but did not say is this: Kim & Mike have chemistry. Carlin doesn't fit. And he still needs funny. I hope it's Sid & Kim. I think it might work...

I honestly Mike gets lonely and bored doing the shows by himself. It's not as easy as he thought it would be.
That's why he has the guests coming in. He needs people to bash and attack to pump his ego. And it's obvious he has the hots for Kim (she is CUTE at best) .... that's why he doesn't rip her apart.

But lets be honest. Mike by himself is death...an unlistenable show....He needs people in studio with him.

I think Sid burned his bridges up here. What's the big deal about him anyway? He's a glorified entertainment reporter who knows a little about sports. He's better off on TMZ or one of those moronic gossip shows than on a sports station.

bigjf said...

I think he's looking to call it Mike'd Up: Francesa on the Fan.

That way he gets a nice long title and gets to hear his name twice.

Completely unrelated, but after the latest Pacman Jones "incident" how badly do you want to listen to Dog today?

Show some guts! Kick him outta the league!!

Did Dog say anything about Pacman Jones that might get him fired?
