There was a caller who was talking with Mike and was just about to get his point out when there was a scream of a baby in the background. The caller says, "Mike, I'm gonna have to call you back." Mike took it in stride. "Ok," he said. And then Mike went off the reservation a bit. Amidst all the talk of ARod, the stalking of ARod, Favre, Jeter as compared to Dimaggio as Yankee captain, the Russo on Stern brouhaha, etc., Mike was able to keep it light and have a little fun.
Legendary father Mike informed us that these things happen, "You're listening to a show and the baby cries...I've been there." Mike came up with "that was a baby falling-off-the-couch type of thing". And then was able to deduce that the crying child in question was not walking yet. Then it got even more amusing as Mike tried to paint a picture of fatherhood..."the baby rolls this way, it rolls that way. It gets stuck in the walker." Then Mike put a very nice bow tie on this total non sequitur of a conversation with, "I'm past all those things. I got 'em all walking. All talking. All potty-trained."
