(Above, Mike Francesa has not just awakened.)
New York, NY -- "I was never asleep," Mike Francesa said on his WFAN show today about his sleeping during a Sweeny Murti Yankees report Monday. "I promise you."
You know what 'promise you' and Francesa mean, right?
"I did close my eyes during the Sweeny interview for a minute and it was on TV and that's become this big bone of contention because I guess everything we do on this show does. But I can promise you as you can go listen to the interview I was never asleep. I promise you. And I promise I'll never close my eyes again nor will I come in without sleeping because my wife says I can't do that anymore."
Francesa also doesn't eat cookies on the air.
Mikey also doesn't eat ice cream or drink a lot of Diet Coke on the air.
And Michael never, ever reads the paper while on the air.
So that settles that.
**Update, you know how you know YES and WFAN orchestrate this stuff? When nonsense like this a) Leads the show and b) Video is up within hours...via YES. (h/t Lisa Marie Latino)
Mike rebuffs reports that he fell asleep during Monday's show. Where the cover-up is often worse than the crime.
