Judging Mike Francesa -- Tuesday (Jan 24th) the Blitz received the following email regarding WFAN's Mike Francesa and his Superbowl 42 pick:
Mike said today he picked the Giants + the 13.5/14 against the Pats in the 2007 Super Bowl. He even said today he gave out 20-17 Pats.
Wrong and lying - Mike picked the Pats to blowout the Giants, No doubt
In today's NY Post, Phil Mushnick writes:
Must be nice to be able to change pick after the fact
Last week, Mike Francesa claimed to listeners that before Super Bowl XLII, he picked the Patriots to beat the Giants, 20-17. With the Pats a 13-point favorite, that would have made Francesa a winner.
In fact, though, it was with great conviction and authority, that Francesa predicted, on the air, a 35-17 Pats win. The tape must be right there, at WFAN for all to again hear. What’s that? It seems to have disappeared? Not again!
Or as reader Greg Marotta put it, “Listen, I could listen to a guy lie all day — if he at least made me laugh.”
That's right Phil. Not again. Here is Mike Francesa on the Mike and the Mad Dog Show, Friday February 1, 2008 (MF Photography):
Unprepared for the digital age and lying is no way to go through life Mikey.
That's Mike Francesa for you.
