As unsurprising as this news is, it really does give a whole new vibe to everything Francesa has done the past few years.
Glazer, via Deadspin:
I got to run for Francesa, and then—my first really solid assignment was at the NFL Draft in ‘91. I got to take Mike Francesa back and forth from the bathroom. And, I’m not gonna lie, copped a couple of peeks. It’s unbelievable. It’s amazing. He is like—he should be in porn. He really should.
Turns out Mike’s still been running a two man show even after Dog left, amiright???
As unsurprising as this news is, it really does give a whole new vibe to everything Francesa has done the past few years. He’s become such a cult figure the last decade or so that we never really think about how insane it is to get away with what he’s gotten away with. The dismissal of callers, the discussion of ratings, every knowing smile, every condescending remark, all of it. All of it kind of take on a new meaning when you realize that Mike was both figuratively and literally the big swinging dick in the room. Will he address it on air? Who knows. But WFAN 1:00 today is MUST LISTEN radio.
P.S. Mike Francesa is literally the only person in the world who would have a bathroom runner.
P.P.S. Glazer sitting on this story for 25 years is why he’s the best scoop man in the business. Schefter would have Francesa’s dick all over ESPN within an hour of seeing it. Glazer kept that under wraps until the moment was right. Total pro.
