Steve in Farmingdale calls Mike Francesa to move on from the tired topic of the New York Knicks and ask the sports pope about the New York Liberty's chances to make the playoffs. Instead of answering the question (probably because he's not aware if they're actually in season or not), Francesa launches into an assault on the caller assuming he's a prankster. He hits his two trademark punches at prank callers - 1) "you've been waiting a half hour for that?" and 2) "go make a contribution to society."
Another humorous battle between Francesa and his callers, but Is it really that hard to believe someone just wanted to talk to Mike Francesa about the WNBA?
Thanks as always to WFAN Audio for the clip.
@Jonathan_Biles: Hahaha. On point.
@richarddeitsch Caller before that asked if the Giants should hire Jerry Sandusky as off coordinator so Pope was already in full fed up mode
@richarddeitsch I don't watch WBB, but I never understood why people get nasty when the topic of WNBA or WCBB comes up.
@richarddeitsch your thoughts as a woman's basketball advocate?
@awfulannouncing Legit call or not if you listen to Mike you gotta know he's not gonna talk about the Liberty.
@awfulannouncing I think that was a sexist response. Maybe the guy was really interested in the NY Liberty. ;)
@awfulannouncing sometimes I need to be reminded the WNBA exists
@KirFlem neither are the empty seats in the stands. Why is Nobody Being Around?
@JimmyTraina You have a link for that?
@Shaughnessy13 I think the guy was pranking Francesa.
@richarddeitsch I know you want to champion womens sports, but wouldve had the same reaction if the Q was about NHL, tennis, nascar, soccer.
