There was huge news in MLS this week as the league unveiled plans for the league's 20th team - a joint venture between Manchester City and the New York Yankees - two of the richest, most powerful teams in the world. After a YES promo for the press conference earlier this week, Mike Francesa expressed his disdain and complete non-interest in the sport of soccer. What follows was one of the more predictable, humorous, get off my lawn soccer rants from Mikey.
Instead of prank calls making fun of Mike's sleepiness, what we really need today is callers asking Mike to break down the Champions League final or fake transfer scenarios for how Borussia Dortmund can replace Mario Gotze.

Mike Francesca is right about 1 thing- a lot of people that like Soccer go and watch it Live over watching it on TV, the only exceptions would be for the FIFA World Cup and Summer Olympics!
Why can't these blowhards STFU? They often hide behind the fact that people don't care. Not to say that thousands will phone into his show about this, but he reveals that he won't talk about it because he doesn't care for it. You don't care? Fine. Then just talk about something else like you otherwise would. The station that pays part of your salary is promoting something. Why go out of your way to bash it, tough guy?
Well, it is a bad idea but given Mike is simulcasts on YES obviously, not the greatest idea to rip it
