Joba'd Up

For the first time in a long time, I could not agree more with Mike. He just launched an anti-Joba rant after he played Chamberlain's comments today regarding a certain video that has become the craze of the internet. Joba came off awful in that interview today, referring to himself in the third person "Yogi is Yogi and Joba is Joba." I was curious to see how Mike would respond. And Francesa went off - in a somewhat tame manner - but still went off on number 62 for "not getting it." I thought Mike nailed this and this is the reason I still tune in to Mike'd Up - because even though you have to sit through a ton of ego and arrogance, every now and then you still get a nugget like this. If you watch the YES pregame show tonight, you will likely get some "Joba apologized and it's time to move on" type of analysis. But it was extremely refreshing to hear Mike take the approach he did...your thoughts?

I disagree, but I guess it's open to your own interpretation. Personally, I don't think Joba meant any disrespect, he was just saying Yogi is Yogi, Joba's Joba, FTLT is FTLT

yeah but when you refer to yourself in the 3rd person you have crossed a bad line....

when i listened to the interview, i didnt think much of the 'yogi is yogi and joba is joba.' i took it more as a 'it is what it is' type of figure of speech.

but i also get yours and mikes point. but i think joba didnt mean to put himself on the same level of celebrity-hood or what have you as yogi. hed have to be really retarded if he was.

mike is more listenable than kay today. kay was swinging on jobas nuts for about 20 minutes.

Tacos are delicious. I hate how they fall over though. I need to get those new ones with the flat bottoms...
