Chris and Mike Talk

A kind commenter here has provided this link of a Chris Russo interview with WEEI in Boston. Russo mentions that he saw and spoke with Mike Francesa for a while on Friday night. Here is a link to the Russo interview:

And here is my best bet on how the conversation went down:

Chris: Anndddd Goooddd Eveningggg Mike, on this Friday November 7th. And how are you tonight??

Mike: Fine.

Chris: Lots to talk about in the world. You got this Pats/Jets game on Thursday. The Phillies proved to be a pretty feisty team. You got the politics...And one more thing, you have those 2 months that you and I haven't spoken to each other since I bolted from FAN. Where do you wanna start?

Mike: Wherever.

Chris: Okay, lets go with Jets/Pats...This idea that the Jets could be a Super Bowl team is...

Mike: (interrupting) Dog, we gotta start with us.

Chris: Excellent point Mike. Excellent point.

Mike: Dog, the fact of the matter is that I still have the number 1 ranked sports talk radio show in the country.

Chris: Now hold on a minute there Mike. Let's be fair here. You've had more people in there for auditions trying to fill my spot than that Osama guy had at his presidential rallies. (LAUGHING) Say something funny Mike.

Mike: Dog, my show still gets better ratings than yours. And you've got Raismann and all your friends defending you left and right, and taking shots at me everyday, but I still outrate you every week.

Chris: Ahhh Mike...CMON!! Could ya please!! That show of yours isn't a patch on Lincecum's fanny! You have done a TERRIBLE job without me.

Mike: I'm still Number One Dog.

Chris: OHH CMON!! would ya please!!! You've got Mike from Montclair and I've got Butch from Biloxi. Who's got the bigger audience now? Now you wanna say hold on a minute there Dog, some truck driver in Mississippi doesn't count? Okay, you could say that...

Mike: (interrupting)..Dog, Have you asked Mel what your stock's at right now? You might wanna see where that number is at..I know where ours is - it's #1.

Chris: PIPE DOWN!!! And another thing, I never had to wait on line to use the bathroom at Yankee Stadium. They DO NOT need a new Stadium. They need a new Stadium like Jeanne needs another diamond ring...

Mike: Dog, I don't know where you've gone to the bathrooms, but those lines were TERRIBLE. They need the new Stadium. That Stadium was not the old Yankee Stadium...It wasn't. I once missed an entire at-bat when Andy was on the mound waiting for the bathroom...

Chris: OH COME ON!!!! The bathrooms were fine!!!! That is an ATROCIOUS argument by you!

Mike: Dog, the fact of the matter is I still have the number 1 ranked sports talk show...

Dog: "But Mikey, I get three callers a day telling me how your show stinks without me! You can have your #1 ratings and stick them up your fat ass."

Rock said...

ha ha.

That's great.
Nobody likes Mike anymore and if he thinks adding Kim Jones and that other fat oaf Carlin....boy is he in for a rude awakening. Can we say ratings killer?

His show yesterday was unlistenable. I had problems getting dog's show to work online so I actually tried to listen to fatso.

Good stuff. Mike's show really has been horrible - it's fallen off more than I thought it would. Joe and Evan now have the best show on WFAN

You people are f_cking crazy! This blog has blown for the past two months, and this post is another pile of hot garbage. The blog knows this, and that is why it's been back to the well OVER and OVER again in the past two weeks. Go ahead - make another post pretending the MMD were talking about something, and then throw the catchphrases in there. God, talk about milking the cow for all she's worth . . .

Outstanding! (The blog, I mean, not the douchebag who is constantly complaining about it but keeps returning.)

Hey, Emilio - you're a tool

I agree with anonymous about this blog .... but, in the blog's defense, the show has blown too, so in might be one of those chicken and egg scenarios ( ha, now we've got a kettle calling to pot black scenario)

The Jets Super Bowl talk is ridiculous -- unless they play the Rams in every round of the playoffs.

Brian said...

Mike is completely wrong about this overtime thing. Since 2000, the team that wins the overtime toss wins the game 60% of the time. It is not dead even like he is saying.

This is yet another instance of him just saying something without checking the facts.

Please stop with this goddam make up conversations. They aren't funny.

Like Howard Stern, Chris Russo has become irrelevant.
