    Da intuhnet was da worst thing that could have happened to Francesa. It keeps his stash of mushes on Youtube forever and ever.

    My guess is he will say something like..... Waitasekent!! I nevuh said dat! What I said wuz... [insert bullshit]. Remember, he can never be wrong.

    I almost forgot about Mike Zaun. I can't believe how spot on his impression was. I know this one is from last year, but this cracked me up

    I can't wait for him to go to Radio.com. Look forward to someone new in the afternoons.

    Wish Shurmur would've said your app is awful. Who'd pay 8.99 a month for that?

    You must have missed the ever popular Mike's On app. For $8.99 you got to listen to him. Not sure what he was selling but it was awful and Radio.com brought it. Rumor is he's leaving the FAN and working solely on Radio.com. Who know.

    Sports Radio has become so bad as a rule almost all of it is barely listenable at this point. When all you have to choose from is shit or shit, you still get shit. The only broadcaster I still really like is Steve Somers.

    I like Evan Roberts. He's usually fair in his takes.

    that FAN afternoon slot could eventually be bart scott's for the taking. not sure who he could pair with but he is a good listen even at this early stage in his radio career.

    Somers is like grandpa. You love the guy and all but you don't want to be spending your friday and saturday nights with him, ya know

    Tony Paige was great, but he upped and quit. Not much to listen to at night any more except maybe Hahn at 7

    Funhouse is great. Only way I can tolerate Francessa. We should start a thread of his picks and pick against them and see how much money we make. I'd do it but don't listen to it. If anyone listens today please post. I'll pick against them on Sunday.

    I have a soft spot for Somers, partly because to this day he still says, "Rangers in seven!" - especially when it's far from relevant. Someone can be talking about basketball and he'll say it, haha. "Steve, do you think LeBron . . ." "Rangers in seven!" LMAO.

    Plus, the show after the Jets dismantled the Cheats in Cheatsette Stadium and knocked them out of the POs was one of the most enjoyable broadcasts I ever listened to as a Jets fan. His bit on pot-smoking lazy ass Shaun Ellis was hilarious. He also used to jab Fatcesa over Wayne Chrebet when Francesa ripped Chrebet apart when he was a rookie (as a matter of fact, Fatty and Russo did it in tandem one day for at least 15 minutes straight). It was so bad that callers were jamming the lines to complain. Unfortunately a good deal of that was to push ratings, and people took the bait.

    Somers wouldn't let it go. "I know Chrebet is a Lilliputian in the land of the Giants, but give the man some credit." Word Play, because if you think Fatcesa gargles the Giants balls now you should've heard how insufferable it was around the time he owned a horse with Fat Parcells.

    P.S.: I've said this before about Shaun Ellis. To be fair, he was a better than decent player, I just think he had the potential to have a much better career than he did. His work ethic was slightly off, and I think if he pushed himself harder at times he could've been extremely memorable. I gotta say, though, that his game in that PO was the most complete game of his career IMO. He was all over the place. Yeah, pot-smoking lazy ass Shaun Ellis.

    Well 1/3rd of the killer NY radio is gone. Stephen A is not doing it in 2020. Now if we can get both Michael's and a Peter to go I'd be happy.
