You recall the interview. Mike Francesa was still able to find a TV simulcaster and Alex Rodriguez needed a sycophant.
We wrote earlier when A-Rod joined Francesa in a lesser discussed but actually funnier phone call -- "Jumping out of the frying pan, Arod joined sycophant Mike Francesa on WFAN today in a completely unstaged interview..." Adding:
Just an hour after jumping WFAN update man John Minko while John was reading that A-Rod had walked out of MLB hearings today to report that Arod had walked out of MLB hearings...sycophant Mike Francesa was surprisingly joined by Alex Rodriguez in a surprise 660 visit that was completely not staged and unexpected.
Well now A-Rod is sorry. “I think just being a big jerk, you know. … I was really just a big jerk,” Rodriguez said about his various transgressions at a luncheon Thursday with University of Miami students, according to CBS Miami. “I made mistakes, and then doubled down and became a bigger jerk and then went on sports radio and made an ass of myself.”
The bigger ass? Mike Francesa. Last yer Francesa fellated Alex Rodriguez again. Francesa to A-Rod, "You had issues with PEDS..." Before the bully revealed for the 1000th time the coward he is, "People say you owe me an apology - you don't owe me an apology. You were talking to the fans, not me."
Got that? And Francesa wanted everyone to know that he asked A-Rod tough questions.
Craig Carton agreed.
