I just caught the beginning and got some big laughs out of it.

With today's breaking news that Andy Pettitte is retiring, Francesa opened his show with a somewhat somber announcement that he was changing plans on the fly because of the momentous import of Pettitte's announcement and press conference scheduled for later in the afternoon.

The monologue continued with retrospective memories from the Fat Man and a philosophical overview of what this means to the Yankees--most unsettled offseason in 20 years, end of an era, etc.

Francesa also said that he would be moving some of the regular Football Friday spots around and bumping others altogether.

When he finally opened the show to calls, he got a surprisingly high (to me, at least) number of calls that were basically "big deal", since Pettitte already retired once before, left the team as a free agent for a few years before that, admitted to doing HGH, etc.

Some of the callers were clearly Yankee haters, but others were Yankee fans (at least claimed to be). A lot of the Yankee fans complained about the fact that his "final" Yankee Stadium start will be on Mariano River Day, thus interfering with the day set aside for a player who clearly is more popular.

The unexpected caller response quickly got under Francesa's skin, as he told different callers "if you don't like it, don't listen", "it's your job to listen and my job to decide what goes on the show", "if you don't like how I do it, get your own show". These prickly responses were all uttered in a span of about 10 minutes and all to different callers.
