Mike Francesa might be the worst radio host of all time. He might be the best. I can’t tell. I can’t crack the code here.
People sit in their cars for hours listening to this man struggle to breathe into a microphone as he hangs up on callers that are obsessed with him because he thinks he’s always right and that no one knows as much as him.
This live action version of Oogie Boogie from the Nightmare Before Christmas saw a clearly photoshopped photograph of Todd Gurley exchanging jerseys with a referee and thought it was real. Is this your king??
Now, I totally understand everyone’s frustrations with the officials after they missed a blatant pass interference call late in the 4th quarter of the NFC Championship game that took the wind completely out of the sails of the New Orleans Saints.
The Saints didn’t lose because one ref missed one call at the end of the game. The Saints lost because Drew Brees chucked an interception in overtime and Sean Payton gave the Rams unlimited time at the end of regulation to tie the game. But yea, let’s be mad at the refs. That’s a really fun and intelligent way to consume sports.
But to think the Rams were like, hanging out with the refs before and after the game is insane. It’s not even a good photoshop. His head is like, floating. I mean shit, there’s a watermarked Twitter handle in the middle of the picture from the guy who did the photoshop.
Mike Francesa is dead, the old dementia-ridden man on the radio all day killed him.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Mike Francesa should probably evaporate. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Follow on Instagram so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
