New Yorkers, You Need To Turn On WFAN Right Now

Thursday, March 13, 2008

I heard about this yesterday (I couldn't figure out which games they were calling so I didn't post), but Mike and the Mad Dog are currently calling the Georgetown-Villanova on WFAN. I can't for the life of me figure out how to play the live audio on, so if someone can shed some light please do so in the comments.

Here are the highlights so far from commenter AA Intern Wannabe....

Mad Dog as another 3 pointer is attempted "uh oh, 3 pointer is....missed."

Mad Dog as the rebound goes to the guard and he brings it up the court (I assume): "he's got the pumpkin."

Mad Dog setting up Mike: "Tell us about Georgetown"
Mike thinking to himself Mad Dog is an idiot I will say what I want to: "Well, Villanova would like the score in the 50's."
With that level of quote grabbing you very well might earn a spot on the C4 News Team AAIW. The duo is also calling the WVU-UConn game, so check them out if you have a second. Should be hilarious.

Update: Okay I'm blind as hell. There's a giant blue button that says listen live....

Listen Live (

(P.S.- I very well might be getting the audio highlights from these games, so stay tuned for more hilarity.)

I'm just disappointed I can't get their response to Billy Crystal batting for the Yankees.

WFAN is also available as a live streaming feed on iTunes. It's filed under "Sports" in the radio library. As a preview, here's one more example of the wisdom of Chris Russo: "It's almost a near steal...."

Fatcesca: If you are Villanova, you now have to get good shots.

Russo just called offensive goaltending "offensive pass interference" before correcting himself...

Fat Mike: "Rebound by Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Patrick uhhhh Ewing."
Chris: "That's good job by you, Mikey."

Oh man, that made me laugh. I missed it but can just hear those voices saying it like that.

Mike: Just called 10 minutes left in the game "Through three".
I think there are only 2 halves in the college basketball game, but maybe I missed something.

Listening to this 2 do a game is like Ametour hour at the comedy club. Oh, my God.

Ever notice that if anyone calls the show and claims to be an expert or professional in anything they take the caller's word as gospel?

I could call up give a completely opposite view of what they were saying, but if I claimed to be, say a doctor, they'd forfeit their opinion and defer to me.

Listening to Russo trying to pronounce multiple last names in a short amont of time is f'ing hilarious.

Not as funny as hearing him pronounce "Phillies" or "Colorado," (basically anything with L's or R's) but it's up there.

That is a great point Madnice. Because Mike and Mad Dog occasionally make fun of play by play calls.
