Sometimes I think it must not be easy to host a several hour long daily sports talk show. You have to deal with obnoxious callers offering stupid fake trade proposals, be sharp in interviews, and sustain energy to entertain listeners through multiple hours of you talking into a microphone. Observe as the daily grind gets the best of Mike Francesa here during an interview with venerable WFAN Yankees reporter Sweeny Murti. His frightened face when he wakes up at the :55 second mark is worth its weight in radio simulcast gold. Someone get this man a Diet Coke!
So effing hilarious. You can see him mouthing the words to his producer "What did I do?" He looked terrified that he had just done something stupid live on the air. Man that's funny. And now he tries to act like he never fell asleep. Just man-up and admit it. Haha.
@ehoffman28 @himynameisseton @c0urtvision mike looks scared when he wakes up. He has no idea what's going on hahaha
Come on, we all enjoy Mike at the beginning of his shows but we all know, um, 'some-thing' seems to happen to Mike in his final hour of service. I think we know full well what, um, 'happens' to Mike, don't we?
@PaulPabst don't hate, Paul. It's the most successful sorts radio show in history. He started it all!
@HiMyNameIsSeton Oh wow. I also like the suggestion of getting Mike a diet coke to perk him back up. #gethisguyaredbull
Holy hell that's awesome RT: @danfoges Mike Francesa fell asleep while interviewing Sweeny Murti. http://t.co/FRoIRHl3
@CorkGaines the :55 mark eliminates the question of was he just looking over numbers rather than nodding off...he'll claim the former
@davebiddle Hahahahaha I know, soooo funny! Loved it.
Mike is great but yeah, I think we're all hip to Mike's situation. It's a good thing the station provides a limo ride back and forth for him each day.
what about skinnyb?
