Why not?

(Edit: for the mods, this is probably more appropriate for Off Topic, so moving it there might be better)

UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I nevuh said dat. You're lost, back after this.

Seriously, he didn't know that the Tigers had no LH starting pitchers when initially talking about the series. I mean how can you be numbuh 1 in New Yawk and not know that? He also pronounced Kyle LOHSE as LOW-SEE. What a disastuh.

One of my favorite Francesa pronunciations: Roy Oswalt as Roy "Oz-walt".

:lol:

He was saying the matchup the other day was "Fista versus Nover". That has to be intentional.

I love (in a perverse sort of way) the Ray Catena commercial where he ticks off the names of all the makes Catena sells ("Jagwaaah", "mybock", "land rovuh").

He's really awful reading advertising copy (mispronouncing words, incorrect emphasis in reading sentences, purely amateur), but sponsors seem to love having him read their spots.

His coverup of his Al Albuquerque mishap is absurdly childish and hysterically comical.

The big man came ever so close to admitting he was wrong in a sports assessment and also nearly poked fun at himself.

But he couldn't quite do it.

Sweeny Murti was on the show reporting from the Winter Meetings.

Referencing Mike's one-time passion for Nate McLouth as a potential CF for the Yankees, Sweeny reported that the bust OF had returned to his roots and re-upped with the Pirates.

The near-mea culpa--"Boy, I don't know what happened to him...."

Then the pullback--"He really fooled me and John Schuerholz"

Nothing beats his butchery of the phrase "Wild Card Hunt"

Not Francesa, but in his time slot the other day, Evan Roberts (more than once) decried the fact that there is a "statue" of limitations on child sex abuse cases.

Earlier in the day, Mark Malusis complimented his producer on being "nappily" attired.

Malussis is just a phony bore and Evan is beyond annoying. Benigno probably does need a partner but not a guy who is just his snarkier, younger equivalent. More like somebody who has none of his fan affiliations but is a good-nature, non-homer (Evan totally is to the point that Joe's pessimism looks fair-minded) with a vast amount of sports knowledge. I found Evan's defense of him still having Mets season tickets, and how still having those tickets (good seats apparently) do not matter to be beyond ignorant. It under-cuts any criticism he has of the team and the Wilpons.
