Could we possibly get afternoon talk about hockey now??? Not gonna miss those two talking about everything possible not to include hockey. Mikes condescending replies when criticised about it from fans is always "well maybe if the NHL got better ratings we would talk about it more". Smug *****... Chris just flat out doesn't like the game, but at least puts in a little effort when he has too.
Especially won't miss fat boy, who uses blanket sports cliches to cover his complete lack of knowledge about the N.Y Rangers and the goings on in the NHL.
I guarantee if you walk up to Mike on the street (or in a fast food place...Probably have a better chance there) and ask him who the Rangers picked in the first round this year, or any year for that matter, he wouldn't have a clue..... but ask him who the Jacksonville Jaguars picked in the 5th round of 2002 draft and he'll spew everything from his 40yd dash to the what job his mothers father brother had in 1971.

What he lacks for in knowledge Russo makes up for in personality. What he lacks in personality, Francessca makes up for in knowledge.
I'm not a big fan of the show, but I would really think that over a prolong period either one of them by themselves would be unlistenable.
Yeah, but I'm sure that if they do move on, they'd be paired again with partners who complement them. There are very few radio shows that consist of simply one person. It wouldn't be hard to find another suitable partner for either guy, especially Francessa.
I don't listen to them except for the Monday's during football season and during the NFL playoffs when they play the Super Bowl Trivia with Russo posing as the Marquee de Sade. I have to say I'm not a huge fan of either of them but it sounds like Russo might be the one to stay on because he's got less of a career elsewhere. Fatcessa has his Miked Up gig plus he could be given additional work on Sunday Night Football as an analyst.
