    Wow busy call, have to go by a checklist there were so many references:

    • Estranged from wife 5 years ago in Old Westbury
    • New address at Millennium Towers
    • Walking his dog Bianca
    • Yells out to Michael Strahan 'zoo za zoo' on street
    Overall, I'd give the call a noine.noine out of ten

    I was just talking to ARM. I heard the same thing live too IHH. I was doing some work and I hear in the background on Francesa, "Wigward on the phone." I turned it up and lost it. :haha:

    NICE summary! I'm just getting home from a soccer meeting and I did that from the road on the fly, so I can't remember until I upload it wtf I spit out reference wise in that window.

    No thunder stolen whatsoever IHH, there's enough SHAZAM to go around for all of us. It's also nice to know if I fuck up and MISS it someone ELSE may be on the ball and catch it for me.

    I'll do one better - I just found out my phone command worked on my DVR. I actually have the VIDEO from Francesa's show on FOX SPORTS TV.

    Thnaks for the heads btw. Francesa had JUST finished talking to Kentucky coach (former Nets coach) John Calipari, and I used that angle to contrive a fake meeting on the street.

    Sorry if you've already addressed this question, but I'm thinking Mike's in on the joke, right? (just no way after the first call that you'd get through the producers, screener & Mike without them knowing what's what)....

    The fact that Mike's having fun at Howard's expense makes it that much better imo. (figure it's payback for potshots howard took at mike when he interviewed maddog)

    I'd love to believe that, but I just don't think so. He's just got these old school blind spots that I try to tap into, BUT I could be wrong???

    Francesca is only in on joke when Sour Shoes calls. He lets Sour riff for a long time. Mongo calls get cut off real quick on Mike's show. Francesca hangs up on everyone without letting them rebut a point. It's great to watch Francesa on TV because you can watch him disconnect from callers and talk like the person is still on the other end of the line. Mike holds one way conversations with the listeners. He doesn't care what you say he only cares what he says. Massive ego but I like that he so powerful he can get away with it.

    Here it is! I did this from the road on a cell phone rather spontaneously, so bare with the cell phone car acoustics. I managed to do the move where you program your DVR from your smart phone for the first time in my life and record FOX SPORTS.

    I reference Howard's OLD stomping ground of rich Old Westbury in my estranged divorce and transition to give out his FULL address of W. 67th and Columbus directly across from ABC-TV in what is called the "Millennium Towers". And of course who wouldn't walk Bianca while I'm there 4 years ago??

    I'm not even sure Kentucky Coach John Calipari and NYG NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan know each other but they sure love to argue on the street about Zoo Za Zoo!
