So what ACTUALLY gets me about the Montana argument is that the Conference Championship Games are, in fact, Championship games. It is a big f’ing deal to win that game.

And Montana I think is 4-3 in those, so 8-3 combined. Brady is 9-4 I think,
so 15-7 combined. I mean 8-3 is percentage points better but no fan or player on earth wouldn’t trade it for 15-7.

Any word on how he lost the over/under on the number of Mets wins based on the crazy home run by Dom Smith who had not played since July 26? That would be great to hear any audio of his remarks regarding his lost bet? Or is it another case of "lost" tapes?

He brought it up in a humble brag during a show opener. That was his only loss out of his 6 picks.

AMAZING clip for yesterday (for those who don't follow Funhouse):
View: https://twitter.com/BackAftaThis/status/1189347938725703680?s=20


Caller asks a 58-second question about tanking in the NFL.

• Mike completely ignores the guy as he plays with his phone.

• Mike's answer has absolutely NOTHING to do with the question (Mike opines on overturning calls or non-calls with video review).

Michael Kay kicked his ass in the ratings this month:


I have been in afternoon drive since 1989 and have never finished behind another sports program. Never. The other station celebrating a success now would be the same as spiking the football after finally scoring a TD in a game that is 77-0!

When he goes so far as to swear on his kids ... you have bingo.

Everything about this is hilarious.

I like how he used the gas release as if to give emphasis to the word “but.”

The people whom I go out of my way to avoid in this world are the people who have no ability to laugh at themselves. Mike could’ve laughed this off and it would be over.

Yeah, he Streisand'd it. It would have blown over in no time if he'd just let it.

Pretty heavy on his use of "morons" so many times. And nice how he avoids the very simple explanation of why they didn't fix it in post IF it happened: no one noticed until it was pointed out by one of Funhouse's followers.

He never should have went back to his old slot and his app was a disaster. Weird that Russo's post breakup career was better but here we are.
He should have done a weekly TV show with less hours so he could devote more energy to it. The grind of daily afternoon drive was the worst possible career choice for him at this point in his life.

It was also nice that he informed us why "The President" rails against fake news all the time. Apparently, it's all just about getting page clicks. That's really been eating at me. Thanks Mike.
It boggles the mind that this guy not only earns a living behind the microphone, but that he was actually brought back after leaving. His oratory skills make me see him as the Donald Trump of sports talk radio.

Despite so many callers wanting to discuss it yesterday and today, Mike has refused to accept what a big deal the Astros stealing signs is. Mostly, it's due to him not having, or not accepting, the facts of the case. He simply won't even listen to anyone trying to tell him that it wasn't off the TV feed, but was a private CCTV camera that went straight to the dugout. Not sure if it's funny or if it's sad.

And we got snow blower talk today, right before the 5pm break!
