Wednesday afternoon, New York area sports deity Mike Francesa mistakenly alerted his listeners to Mets starting pitcher Zach Wheeler's injured UCL after reading a year-old report. What can we say? Mike's closing in on his "retirement" and he's never been too good with the internet machine. Ya gawhta give him a break.
His co-workers at WFAN, however, weren't gonna let this opportunity to clown the "Sports Pope" slide.
Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton used Mike's slip-up to fill almost 10 minutes of airtime Friday, demonstrating that he also misrepresented how quickly the mistake was corrected by playing the tape and counting the time between his "report" and the retraction (Francesa claimed it was 30 seconds). A bombshell, we know.
Carton also claimed that Francesa purposely takes calls from people who want to discuss his on-going feud with the "Boomer & Carton" program in order to indirectly address it, giving the appearance that he doesn't care about it.
More of this, please.
