Bad Job There, Mikey:
subtitled, How The Fuck Did We Miss This?

Apparently there were rumors about two weeks ago that Mike and the Mad Dog were breaking up. Francessa has been on vacation for a couple weeks, and the rumor was that they had likely done their last show together.

Chris Russo, not on vacation, used the monologue of the show recently to deny the rumors.


Well, where there's smoke there's fire. I wonder if this has any truth to it. If you watched the video you saw that Russo said they had been arguing a lot and were basically kindof baiting each other for a while, and then they discussed it and it's behind them. Irecently was listening (two to three months ago) when they were both saying they can't imagine working anywhere else and that they would essentially have to be dragged out of the studio on their death beds.

Still, interesting. If the shit went down, I wonder which of them they would keep? My bet would be Russo, but I can't say for certain. Francessa is due back on Friday, so I wonder if they'll bring it up again. I'll be glued to the YES network at 1pm. I probably won't.

Please, for the love of God, let this be the death of Mike and the Mad Dog.

I hear that every time a Mad Dog dies, an angel gets its wings.

And every time Mike Francesa gets all uppity, an angel gets water-boarded.

Water-boarding is no laughing matter. End this show.

I've been back up in North Jersey for over a week now and listened to (Mike and) The Mad Dog rant and rave on his show. He makes almost no sense, and literally just about every other caller refutes something he's spouted until he says something like, "You know, that's an excellent point. You're right, you're right, I admit."

We may as well just give Scott Isaacson have a show - it's about the same thing. "Capital W, Capital E, WALLY ELEGBE!" Actually, just give the Sherman Ave. guys some airtime and clean up this mess.
