PLAYERS: Mike Francesa
Mike Francesa will be turning 58 in March. My old man is 55, and he doesn’t really understand computers. For some people it is a generational thing and they just can’t get it. Francesa, however, should have a pretty good idea of how the digital era operates by now. He works in radio and sometimes television. He must know that those computers he’s surrounded by all day store information and record what he says, right? Apparently not. According to the NY Post, Francesa blatantly lied about his Super Bowl 42 pick on his show last week to make himself sound better.
