During a self-congratulatory monologue that was occasionally interrupted by phone calls from listeners, Francesa touched on everything from his continued success ("The other competition is changing their lineup against me for the fawtieth time!") to his humble beginnings ("[I] grew up... dirt poor").
Francesa, whose frustration with the Jets coach for skipping his show was likely exacerbated by the fact that Ryan did a ton of shows that weren't his, dubbed Ryan's new book a "flop" (it's currently 110th on Amazon). As for Mushnick, who recently characterized Francesa's style as a "dishonest, arrogant, egocentric, know-it-all condition," Francesa said, "my audience is bigger than his." Oh, snap.
