By now you’ve heard about new chapter the Alex Rodriguez saga. A-Rod stormed out of his arbitration hearing after MLB Commissioner Bud Selig aka”the man in Milwaukee” refused to testify. A-Rod marched right out of MLB headquarters and headed down to the WFAN studios to sit with the Pope himself: Mike Francesa.
This is when Twitter blew up; I spent almost an hour at work listening to the interview and reading the tweets regarding it. Here are the best ones, with a couple of mine sprinkled in because I’m selfish.
Say what you will about Mike. He’s killing the vest/dress shirt look. #BusinessCasualZaun
Give him this, ARod sounds far less canned and rehearsed than he ever has before. He may be schizophrenic, but he believes what he’s saying.
Im not a lawyah but dat made no sense to me, ok.
I just blew off my boss’ 4PM meeting for this. I mean, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. #MongoNation
Francesa is going down on A-Rod after the interview, yes? Just as friends, of course.
This is moah inspiring den Denzel in remembuh da titans
Shoeless Joe Jackson could’ve used talk radio in 1919 to sell his story. Bet Judge Landis wouldn’t have testified either.
Kids, you won’t remember this, but Mike Francesa was once a credible journalist with intelligent takes on college basketball.
Beginning 2016 “Mike and the Mad Rod”
Kids, you won’t remember this, but Alex Rodriguez was once a spectacularly likable shortstop for the Seattle Mariners.
Somewhere Derek Jeter has a single tear sliding down his cheek
@FrancesaCon Are couples costumes (ARod and Zaun) allowed at the bar?
What would youah say to da man in Milwaukee? We know he is watchin, ok. Dis is on coast to coast (Take dat @KeithOlbermann)
This quote is amazing: Selig is “trying to destroy me. To put me on his big mantle on the way out, that’s a hell of a trophy.”
Metta world arod
Agent Smith vs Neo wasn’t half as entertaining as this.
Francesa missed a perfect opportunity to ask about the Centaur painting
