WATCH: Mike Francesa Does Not Feel the Awakening
There has been an awakening...but Mike Francesa has not felt it.
The outspoken New York City sports talk radio host took to the airwaves on Friday afternoon, where, for whatever reason, the talk shifted toward the cultural phenomenon that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Francesa was given a brief history lesson on the order of movies in the franchise, which famously released the fourth, fifth, and sixth chapters first before tackling the first trio years later. While this was not the original plan, it was worked to perfection (at least in a financial sense) with the Star Wars franchise becoming one of the most profitable of all time.
The iconic nature of the franchise was lost on Francesa, however, who interrogated his producers on the story, utterly confused by the whole thing.
To be fair, Mike cohorts don't do the greatest job on explaining the franchise, but it still makes for some great radio. This isn't the first time Francesa has taken an iconic film franchise to task, as last week, he went on a memorable rant on the Rocky franchise.
