Whatever your personal opinion is on Mike Francesa, try to set it aside for two minutes and 14 seconds in order to enjoy the clip posted above. In it, a caller to Francesa’s show asks — arguably — the most mind-numbing, insane and, as New York’s No. 1 puts it himself, “maybe the weirdest questions I’ve gotten in a long time.”
The caller, Dan in Warwick, ask if the San Francisco Giants ever do anything with the New York Giants when they visit the Big Apple since the two teams used to call Gotham home and share a name. It’s actually quite brilliant in its stupidity. It’s hard to even think how someone could come up with such a question in the first place, call up a radio show and wait on hold to ask it.
Naturally Francesa is initially baffled by the call, but then remembers who he is and dismisses the idea with mocking, papal authority before kicking it to the Mink Man.
