I'm an educated man but I can't speak to the show opening habits of Mike Francesa. After a good sports weekend, which included a couple of surprise Final Four participants, one great ending and Tiger announcing his return, Mike starts off with some rant about...I don't know exactly. He's angry. Angry at someone for ruining the opening of both New York ball parks. He started off by blaming the Mets for blowing their opening with a college baseball game. But then he just started implore people to unite and enjoy the upcoming openings. Obviously using the word 'unite' combined with Mike Francesa is a bit of a contradiction. Mike Francesa doesn't not unite people. That's not his bag.

But Mike just wants a love-in. He said, "Everybody let's forget about all the financial problems." Easy for you to say Mike. How's that salary? Enough to feed your wife and kids. Yes, I think so.

So basically I am asking for help. Because I don't know where he is coming from and what he is talking about. Any ideas?

I missed the actual opening and also caught Mike in mid rant regarding the new stadiums.

I'd like to agree with Mike on this one and I'm hoping to take in 1 game this year at the new Yankee stadium and 1 game at Citi field but like yourself I think Mike is discounting just how hard these clubs have made it for the "average joe" to attend.

The price of attendance is just one part of the problem. It's when you add in parking and concession prices that it gets out of hand.

I'll look forward to attending my 2 games but I really look forward to a new 50 inch TV so I never have to pay stadium prices again!!!

P.S.-- How do you not open the show with the final four???

anon, the mets have actually lowered the prices for sodas, hot dogs, and a few other baseball game "staples" this year.

i just felt very shakespearean for writing 'anon.' lol.

Loki - It is a quote from Col. Nathan Jessup in A Few Good Men. But while you are still working on your degree, I have actually obtained one.
