Whats that famous saying from The Wire? “You come at the King…you best not miss.” If you’re gonna call Francesa and bash him for the way he does his job, you better not be a professional umpire.
“Are you ashamed of what you do for a living?”
“I feel bad for you that you don’t have a job, but listen: if you can keep your job as long as I have, then you’d be in good shape.”
There is nothing, and I mean nothing, better than when Mike gets cocky about his own career. The best was after Sleepgate when he said “Guess what? I’m still gonna be here tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day and get paid a fortune to sit here and do this.”
6 to 12 inches? Thats NOT the weather forecast.
People, run to the store! Get scared! Think you’re gonna get 2 feet of snow. 3 feet of snow. Whenever theres a snow storm everyone thinks they’re getting 20 inches of snow, know why? Cause they don’t wanna work. Cause they wanna stay home. Sit at home and worry about the weather, ok?
Classic. Mike Francesa – Sports analyst, movie buff, political aficionado, and now… meteorologist.
