Lets just say that Big Mikey did a better job with the New York Marathon results. Most importantly, we are starting a kickstarter to buy "jimmyt0225" -- yes, that means you, Traina -- a new Flatscreen TV. At the very least, the dude needs a YouTube photo.
Mike Francesa saying "ya' got Gronk'd, as she said, the girls get Gronk'd ... everyone in New England gets Gronk'd" is the equivolent of your grandfather asking you if you're getting Crunk tonight. Either ratings are slipping at WFAN or Francesa was unusually horny. Not sure we want the definitive answer to that one.
Before I get into this, it's important to emphatically note that Kars-4-Kids is a fantastic, well-intended charity with incredibly nice people who have accepted our exhausting criticism with a smile. Having said that, none of those wonderful snippets of warmth will ever be able to change the fact that their anthem is a mystifyingly shitty insult to not only music, but sound in general. Even the most reasonable of humans surrender to this jarring fact of life about three seconds in. Amazingly enough, as I type this screed, the original theme song has just begun playing on WFAN and forced me to temporarily abort this passage to save my ears from a vicious self-stoning.
Now as you may or may not recall, we made an inspiring plea to WFAN back in July of 2008 regarding this hellacious jingle that plays incessantly throughout your work day. Three long years later, not a whole lot has changed. Until now.
The lethargic folks at Kars-4-Kids have finally gone back to the lab for a 2011 remix, which thankfully means the original one will soon be extinct. The bad news? The new ballad makes me want to push my eyeballs directly through the back of my head with the end of a handy lacrosse stick.
But to be fair, as always, I asked for additional feedback from fellow Hernia founder Gerrard Sir Hornypants. After roughly three minutes of prodding the musical elitist to listen to it, I finally received the following "feedback" via iChat:
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (HEAD JUST IMPLODED) Is this the same band that did the Francesa jingle? HOOOOOOOOLY SHIT
We've listened to this unintentionally hilarious interview multiple times. Our conclusion? Mike Francesa's obsession with the Revis-Marshall clip stems from the fact that his favorite play in all of football is when one player gives another player "the business."
We applaud our fearless leader Tim Ryan for calling into 'Miked Up' earlier today and giving Miguel Francesa a little bit of shit for his ball washing of Joe Torre over the whole 'Unanimity' thing, which has yet to make sense. We never would have expected MLB to bend any rules -- we totally bought the fact that Chris Gaines err... Garth Brooks was worthy of a look back in 1999, and the fact that the Diamondacks wore their retro crap for two extra games -- but yes, homage to the dead is routinely outweighed by the unmanageable, explosive teet that is Bird Selig's pulsating nipple.
What was a bit baffling, however, was the manner in which Mikey "Pepperoni Pancakes" Francesa brushed off such a glowing compliment in the form of an audible snarf, though we do salute Tim for introducing radio land to the term 'Para Shit Trooper'.
Snarf on and prosper Mike... you fat, capped teeth fuck. Though, we still love your show. As well as your tits.
Nothing changes an average game like Betting Online. When you have a stake in the outcome of a contest, a typical match can become a memorable event. One might say that it's even more fun than a sports hernia...
and you could come away with some extra cash! The only better feeling than winning is having extra pocket money.
