Ep. 98 - Mike Francesa Unfiltered For An Hour & The Town Of Canada Is Awesome : PMS 2.0

  • Published: 13 August 2019
  • On today's show, the man who pioneered the industry Pat is about to embark in, the Godfather of sports talk radio, member of a countless number of broadcasting hall of fames, host of Mike's On: Francesa on the FAN, and creator of the Mike's On app, all around electric human being, Mike Francesa joins Pat and the guys live on FaceTime. They discuss how his career has changed with the times over the last 30+ years, his relationship with his former co-host Chris "Mag Dog" Russo and what their relationship was like while they were on the air, some advice he has for Pat with the start of the radio show around the corner, what his relationship with Odell Beckham and the New York Giants front office is currently like, his philosophy on taking phone calls during his show and why his treatment of the callers is often misconstrued, his thoughts on the upcoming NFL season as well as some takes on some of the players that are making waves this preseason, and he answers some questions from the room. This interview is a MUST LISTEN (2:08-1:03:37). Pat also covers his weekend in Toronto with Foxy as they were in town for the WWE Watchalong at Summerslam. Pat breaks down why Toronto might be his favorite city on the planet, what the Canadian hospitality is like, how going to a Blue Jays vs. Yankees game resparked his idea to have live betting available before every pitch at a baseball game and how it would improve the entertainment value, some of his favorite moments from the Watchalong event including his growing friendship/rivalry with Adam Cole, and his post NXT preshow run-in with Triple H on Saturday night and how he thought it might have been due to another dress code violation, and what it's like being dropped back into the WWE Universe after being gone for a few weeks and getting caught up with everything that is happened throughout the business. Today's episode is a great one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.

    Sat in the owners box at a pirates game a few years ago my uncles company owns a piece of the stadium and they bet on everything! Each batter you put money in a cup and then pass it if someone hit a home run while you have the cup you get the money! They even bet on if when the catcher rolls the ball out to the mound after the inning does it stay on the mound or roll off!

                        Funny, earlier I re-watched the half Jewish, half Baptist wedding episode where Pat met Vino. (Def not the title btw) Where Vino told Pat he'd call Francesa on Sunday, and maybe Pat would talk to him on Monday. Funny how an insomniatic binge ties things together for ya. Congrats on everything boy! LET'S FUCKING GO!!!!!

                            I am in Army stationed in South Korea. I greatly enjoy listening to this show.
                            I got 4 questions. How do you think the Green Bay Packers will do? If Aaron Rodgers and the Head Coach don’t work well together and the Packers miss the playoffs who goes? If Rodgers goes do you see a trade for Carr and 1st round draft pick as a possibly? Last question will you be calling any XFL games? If you have time to answer these questions. Thank you if not I understand.

                              The packers will win 2 games (the lions twice), both will be gone at the end of the year, there’s already a verbal agreement for 10 1st rd picks for Carr, fuck the xfl. Skol. But for real stay safe over there man sounds like there’s some crazy stuff every other day over there.

                            I dont think any callers will be better than Whatever radio show is after the colts game on 1070. Drunk hoosiers calling in sounding dumb af is the highlight of my sundays

                                Mike Fran is the 🐐. Great interview. Wish he could ask gettleman why he let OBJ and Vernon go to the future AFC champions in Cleveland. Also I live in Charlotte and DGett was a disaster here. Glad he’s gone and the Panthers are looking good too now.

                                  Francesa's video lag made me think the whole sound was off, or maybe it's the vitamins
