Not since Paul Harvey’s salad days have I heard a pitchman as compelling as Michael Francesa , whose dulcet tones were in fine form this afternoon on New York’s WFAN :
“Valentine’s day is coming….don’t screw it up.”
“Call Vermont Teddy Bear.”
“I’ve got a cough drop in my mouth.”
(another 7 or 8 seconds of dead air)
“Vermont Teddy Bear…we’ve been working with them a long time. You can dress ’em as risque as you want. Send it to her place of work.”
“Back to this Bernie Williams thing…”

Wow, that was amazing. That’s my type a guy, right there.
*weeps some more*
That’s some awesome shit, dude.
Someday, hopefully, my prince will come and he’ll be toting a Vermont Teddy Bear dressed in a risque fashion.
I’d love to see The Bear’s Bear (complete w/ codpiece, leather harness, ballgag, and John Amaechi autobiography).
“We’ve been workin with these guys for a hundred years…”
I’ll be sure to watch the Best of on Yes tonight! I love it when Dog will say a sponsor’s name so fast that if you’re not a regular listener, you won’t know what the hell he’s talking about. Instead of “Grey Goose sponsors this 20/20 sports flash with John Minko”, it’s just “greygoose flash, heerz Mink”. Kind of like how the subway driver has to say “stand clear of the closing doors” so many thousands of times in a row, it just turns into “clo doors” eventually. Mike and the Mad Dog are like the big fat kings of sports radio, sitting on a pile of gold, stuffing their faces with cakes and pies, oblivious. In Mike’s case, that’s literally the case, I think.
no Dog today, Jere. Sorry.
Obvouisly Mike doesn’t do a good ad for Vermont Teddy Bear as well as Mr. Dave Meltzer
Yesterday evening including an interesting Francesa stalker moment, where some guy asked if they could meet in person after detailing all the similarities in their lives and reminiscing about a high school gym teacher.
Francesa said he wasn’t going to talk about meeting the guy in person.
Then, the caller asked how the Yankees could rectify the Bernie Williams situation.
