NFT: I've always been a big Francesa fan, but FUCK

Victor in CT : 4/21/2017 1:31 pm
the Rangers win a HUUUUGE exciting game last night and he's talking about the fucking Celtics in the opening as if anybody gives a fuck here, come back from the break and goes into the Jets schedule. Sheesh.

He had his boy Bill Simmons on yesterday to talk Celtics too. By the way, Bill Simmons without a doubt sounds like the biggest douche of all time. His voice makes me want to punch a wall.
Fuck the Celtics

Way too many Celtics fans on BBI, too
Why listen to him?

I gave up years ago. He's a disgrace to NY sports.
What's newsworthy about the Celtics right now?  
bceagle05 : 4/21/2017 1:39 pm : link
The Rondo injury? Melo rumors? Crazy that he's not opening with the Rangers, or even Mets/Nats. After what Lebron did last night, is there any doubt who's winning the East anyway?
It's over...

...his retirement can't come soon enough. In retrospect he's been in a steady decline since Dog headed to satellite. He needs a foil, he's too myopic to go it alone.
He's alergic

I won the Yankee turning point of the game contest on Joe and Evan Wednesday. 4 tickets to Yanks Orioles and randomly, a $44 Wendy's gift card. First time I ever got through to one of those things.

The flagship station of the Yanks awesomely hooked me up with bleacher seats! :/

And was from Day 1. At least Francesa knew something about sports (except for hockey) at one point.
He knows jack shit about hockey

GTFO. Radio really is the lowest of budgets, no wonder Beningo constantly complains.
I respect hockey players  
Dave in Hoboken : 4/21/2017 2:36 pm : link
because they play a brutally tough sport, unlike certain other sports in which the athletes seem to be made of glass at times.

But when it comes to sports radio, it's still hockey.

For every 3 people that listen to francesca because he knows sports

There are 5 hatera who listen because it is hilarious how important he thinks he is and how funny it is how out of touch he is.

He begrudgingly brings in hockey commentators when a local team goes deep into the playoffs. That's about as close as he gets to hockey.

He can go hours about horse trainers or the Yankees fifth starter in 2019 though.
It's not just Francesa

I caught some of Mike and Mike this morning for variety - 45 minute Lebron suckfest, no reference to there even being a sport called hockey

I think they broadcast the NBA. Might play into it.
Supposedly baseball is his big sport  
Greg from LI : 4/21/2017 3:28 pm : link
Yet he had no idea who Al Albuquerque was when he had just pitched against the Yankees in a playoff game the day before.
Whether You Like Francesa or Not  
Samiam : 4/21/2017 3:33 pm : link
There isn't anybody on sports radio locally who comes close to him in sports knowledge. Teh other day I turned on ESPN radio in NY and they had Stephen A Smith. is he a regular now? Francesa may be mailing it ibn now that he's coming to the end of his FAN days but he's still way better than anybody else. The only other good one in my opinion is Dave Rothenberg and he gets preempted all the time. Michael Kay is bad; Mike & Mike suck. Carton is beloe suck. Beningo is a clown and Evan not much better. Who else is there?

Two points, someone mentioned above how it's going to be if Christie gets the job. He's be worse than Carton if that possible and I would rather listen to NPR than either of them. Second, I like hockey and love the Ranger win, great win. But most people I know could give a shot of hockey. Francesa, at least, admits he doesn't know the game.
Knowledge?  
Greg from LI : 4/21/2017 3:35 pm : link
HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Did he really talk about the BOSTON NBA team  
Rover : 4/21/2017 3:36 pm : link
the Celtics in his opening statement; not the Rangers?
How long and how much hockey did he talk?

I quit listening to him after 2015 once they took him off TV; the prank calls weren't as funny.
He totally has mailed it in; guy doesn't even try.

No, that's not possible.

Although I havent listened in years since I got Sirius. Will take Russo any day over Francesser.

And this made me LOL:

Nice. I won a box office blitz at Wfan back in April of 04 and won 2 tickets to the nyg draft day party. Eli draft. I won it late at night. Easier to get through then.

You think radio stations pay for those tickets? That's what's provided by the team.

I won Nets' playoff tickets from the FAN IN 2003. They were upper deck seats.
He probably knows next to nothing about hockey.

And face it, hockey isn't that big of a sport. Of the Big 4, it's clearly a distant 4th.

The NFL has nothing going on, there are no local NBA teams in the playoffs, and there's mid-April baseball.

Probably NASCAR too. WFAN doesn't cover that either, as they don't broadcast it.
