Mike literally takes the same calls about Cano's contract, Incognito, and the Yankees for 5 hours straight.

 

You would think this guy would take this time of year to learn the bare minimum about hockey and talk about it, even a little bit.

 

 

This. He talks more about baseball during their offseason than he does hockey during their season (now).

 

I really want to run an experiment where you bet against every prediction me makes on every game for a year.  I really wonder what the outcome would be.  My hypothesis is that you would come out ahead.

They did ask about being on both sides of this rivalry.

 

My ears perked when he said, paraphrasing, "The Rangers have so many more fans, so when we played in Jersey, it was practically a home game.........."

You'd think that having a varied show would keep people around but no. Its because I doubt people listen to him for more then half an hour because that's how long the drive home is. That and old farts in Florida who watch on Yes and only care about Football, baseball and horse racing. I do like when he gets on how long people wait on line to prank call them and berates them for having nothing better to do. Yeah because waiting an hour to make the same point about Mantle... again is a better use of it

I remember hearing a pretty funny Fatso prank several years ago...it had a well-placed Stripes (1980 movie starring Bill Murray and Harold Ramis) reference.

 

This was just after Tony Romo had taken over for Drew Bledsoe as the Dallas Cowboys' starting QB...a caller claimed that there had been an ugly scene in the Dallas clubhouse between Romo's and Bledsoe's families, and began telling his story to Mike, who was completely entranced...Fatso was buying in completely.  The caller finished with, "Apparently Bledsoe's dad was so ticked off, he finally snapped and said 'Any of you friggin' ROMOS touch me, and I'll kill ya!" 

 

I still don't think Idiot ever realized he was pranked...after the call was over he kept saying things like "Wow, I didn't realize that was going on...I mean, families going at it in the clubhouse..."

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

It doesn't bother me all that much.  I'd rather him not talk about it if he doesn't really know much about the sport, which he'll readily admit.  I think his interviews with Pierre McGuire and Micheletti are actually pretty good all things considered. 

 

I've heard Stephen A. Smith try to talk about hockey.  He speaks in this authoritative tone when I imagine the guy couldn't name more than five players in the entire league.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

All this baseball talk from Francesa in November is sickening. Who the f cares about baseball in November??

 

I listen passively in my office during the day and the sheer amount of baseball today has been nauseating. There's football on tonight. Football this weekend. Hockey is going on. Hell even the NBA is in season. What the hell Zaun.

 

God save the King, backaftadis.
