This goes out to Gregg Hopps. He wanted to know how Mike and the Mad Dog would have dissected Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game, if they had been on the air back then.
Russo: “Good afternoon, everybody!! How are you today? On this Monday afternoon, March 3rd, 1962 on the Fan. WPIX is piggybacking. Hello, Mikey.”
Francesa: “Dog, I’ve never been a big fan of Donovan and I am not a big fan of these athletes padding their stats. Chamberlain’s playing with Al Attles and Paul Arazin. Neither whom are a slouch. How about passing it once or twice? That would be nice. I can’t take Chamberlain seriously until he wins a title. He can score all the points he wants. But right now, the two most important numbers are 3…and…Zero. Russell and the Celtics have won 3 titles. Chamberlain. Zilch.”
Russo: “That is true, Mikey. Chamberlain in a tough spot(hyperventilating laughter creeping in), you start hearing Patsy Cline singing, I Fall To Pieces.(lots of laughter)."
Francesa: "I just don't trust him in a big spot."
Russo: "My wife, Jeannie won't stop singing that song. She loves Patsy...Still 100 points for the Stilt. Speaking of big performances, the Oscars are coming up. Who do you like, Mikey?”
Francesa “I haven’t seen any of the movies this year. I can’t offer an opinion.”
Russo “Sophia Loren is nominated for best actress.”
Francesa “She is a knockout. I would see anything that she is in.”
