BFF'S

In case you weren't listening to Mad Dog today, he gave a belated Happy Birthday to Mike Francesa. I was a little surprised because it makes it seem like they get along. Or maybe they exchange gifts every year. But what made it especially strange was that he mentioned this late shout-out because a caller brought up the death of ABC Radio personality George Weber. For some reason, the mention of a slain radio host got him thinking about Mike. Maybe it's not that strange after all.

Also, I've listened to a little of both shows today(that is Mad Dog Unleashed and Mike'd Up Francesa on the Fan). They seem to be on the same page. They're both killing CBS' coverage of the tournament over the weekend. There's no doubt that CBS does more harm than good sometimes with their peripatetic switching between games, but is that the lead from the weekend? In Mike and Chris' world, it apparently is. It's just too bad that they aren't doing their show together today. They could talk about birthdays and Sean McManus.

I've read a lot of stuff here. I think you hit the right chord. The sum of their parts was extradorinary. They are good alone. But just good...

I'm with Loki on this. The WBC talk is tiresome, at best. I'm with Mike, too. It's an exhibition. The fact that they had Jeter at SS and Rollins on the bench proved that. This should be a shelved topic. I hope he gives the tourney a rest for today and spends the bulk of the show on the 2009 MLB season. Good stories, debates and the like and waiting to be had.

Completely unrelated to this discussion, but seeing as many guys on this blog were Mets fans growing up in 80s and also since Mike had this clown on his show a few months back, this article may be interesting. It's about Lenny Dykstra's now failed magazine "The Players Club" and basically about how much of a mess he is. Very interesting I thought and good for a little bathroom break reading on a boring Tuesday at work

Francesspool is now touting Tampa Bay after dismissing them last year.

What a laughable load.

Some caller just asked Mike, 'Have you ever seen Michael Kay's show Centerstage?' Hilarious. Mike replied, 'Uhhhhhhhh. I know of the show. I don't watch all of them.'
