Terry Collins Acts Like Jerk Toward Mets PR Guy; Mike Francesa Isn’t Impressed

Wednesday was a rough day for longtime New York Mets public relations guy Jay Horwitz. The Mets were able to defeat the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday afternoon, but it wasn’t an easy afternoon for the Metropolitans. Star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and ace pitcher Noah Syndergaard both left the games with injuries, which means additional work for Horwitz, the club’s public relations...

Mike Francesa reports Mets injury, only to realize half way through it was an old report

Mike Francesa really isn’t sure if it’s a new report or an old report. The bombastic host of Mike’s On: Francesa on the FAN was hosting his show when he discovered a report that Mets pitcher Zach Wheeler suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament and was seriously injured. The problem was, the report Francesa watched wasn’t new. It was from over a year ago. Wheeler might...

Mike Francesa declared Sting dead even though he is very much alive

WFAN host Mike Francesa isn’t always up on current events or even entire sports, but it’s still remarkable to hear him declare a very-much-alive artist dead. That’s what he did Tuesday, though, starting by talking about actually-dead musicians Michael Jackson and Elvis and then citing still-alive musician Sting as someone who’d already passed on. Via @RNs_Funhouse: Mike...

Someone mashed up Mike and the Mad Dog talking about the Cincinnati gorilla

If there was ever a day when the world needed former New York sports talk power duo Mike Francesa and the Chris ‘Mad Dog’ Russo debating each other, it was Tuesday, when America freaked out about the Cincinnati’s decision to shoot a gorilla after a young child had fallen into its enclosure. For an issue that had little complexity to it when you boil it down (can’t we all...

Mike Francesa spends eight minutes saying he doesn’t care about soccer

WFAN radio host Mike Francesa has had quite the history with soccer, from feuding with Fox over his FS1 simulcasts’ preemption for Champions League games and their higher ratings to having St. John’s men’s soccer head coach Dave Masur explain the game to him from first principles on-air for half an hour during the 2014 World Cup to questioning New York City FC’s lack of nickname...

Mike Francesa calls Islanders organization “A Bunch Of Clowns”

In his endless quest to make good radio in New York, WFAN personality Mike “Sports Pope” Francesa unloaded on the Islanders for not selling out Game 3 at Barclays Center against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Francesa called out the behind the scenes players in Brooklyn, and didn’t hold back: “They don’t know how to market, their PR people are lost, they don’t know how to...

Mike Francesa Claims He Knows Who Leaked NCAA Tournament Bracket (Video)

Did you know that Mike Francesa is in the know? Francesa, a popular (and rather kooky) radio host for CBS-owned WFAN, said Monday that he has information about who leaked the 2016 NCAA Tournament bracket before it was officially unveiled during CBS Sports’ Selection Sunday coverage. He wouldn’t spill the beans, though, saying he wasn’t allowed to reveal too much information...

Mike Francesa caught in his own lies, again

Mike Francesa has a habit of changing his mind or “misremembering” things with great skill. Therefore, his latest change of direction should come as no surprise to anyone. A few weeks ago Gary in White Plains, NY asked Francesa straight up if he though Leonard Fournette would win the Heisman, to which Mike responded with a very confident, yes. He didn’t even give a reason why...
