Last week, Mike Francesa said the opportunity to do an alternate broadcast with his former partner Chris “Mad Dog” Russo would be a “home run” if someone wanted to pair the legendary duo together. Monday, WFAN morning host Gregg Giannotti reacted to that comment from Francesa.

During the final hour of Boomer & Gio, the topic came up with Giannotti noting that Francesa has a firm belief that he could do many things well, but pondered where the motivation for the former WFAN host to insert himself into the conversation came from.

“You know where this stems from? He’s probably just so jealous of the fact that Michael Kay has his own alternate broadcast on ESPN,” Giannotti said. “He’s probably like ‘Oh, this is terrible with A-Rod’, and A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez) was Mike’s buddy, too. So he’s probably thinking ‘Why not me? Why him?'”

After mentioning that Francesa once said he do a good job managing the New York Yankees, Giannotti continued his criticism of the the Sports Pope.

“He probably thinks he could work on the International Space Station,” Giannotti said before beginning a Francesa impersonation. “‘They’d never ask me. Like, I know SpaceX would never come to me and ask — and I know they have defunded NASA and all that — but back in the day I had a good relationship with NASA, and they could have sent me up there years ago, before my knee replacement. But they never would have done it.

“They never would have called me to do that but I woulda been great at it. You put me in a zero gravity environment, and then give me the tools to fix that spaceship? I can do it. You put me and Dog up there? Whatever problem you have up there — you gotta worry about the debris floating around up there. You gotta worry about the debris. Meteorites and certain Russian satellites, but I’d be great at it.'”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
