It did not acquire lengthy for the anonymous Twitter consumer Funhouse to get back again to posting clips from Mike Francesa exhibits.
What was the very first one particular he posted on Wednesday considering that returning from the self-imposed ban?
A clip of Francesa telling his audience that he witnessed very first-hand the exploits Michael Jordan.
Francesa brought himself into the story recently on his radio show when conversing about Jordan’s exploits that have been documented in the 10-component series “The Very last Dance.”
“Let’s be truthful. Jordan is a freakish gambler,” Francesa reported. “I really have been in the on line casino with him, and he gambles ridiculous at the card tables. I imply he’ll engage in the full desk for large stakes. I’ve witnessed him do it.”
Francesa also produced the issue that Jordan was easily ready to afford his substantial-stakes .
“So he will wager a lot of revenue,” Francesa added. “But keep in mind, it is all relative. Jordan turned down million greenback appearances on a each day foundation. Turned them down. They weren’t large plenty of. I’m conversing about real millions of bucks a day in appearances and turned them down. They weren’t large plenty of. That is how large he was.”
Funhouse also wanted his 100,000-moreover followers to know that it was not the very first time Francesa wanted his listeners to know that he saw a sports activities legend large bucks. The account also posted a video clip tweet from a handful of years of the longtime host saying he saw Pete Rose guess seriously several occasions.
“A lot of us saw Rose guess a lot. I saw Rose guess when he was a participant,” Francesa reported in the older clip. “I saw him guess in the offseason in a card show … when he was a participant, like a madman.”
These clips came much less than two weeks just after @BackAftaThis reported he would never ever all over again post video clip from Francesa’s show — this, just after Francesa and Entercom barred anybody from posting films of the show with no their consent, only to relent a few weeks later on.
Funhouse described the purpose for the flip-flop.
“Mike’s show is awful,” @BackAftaThis wrote in a tweet previously on Wednesday. “As I talked about the other day, a large catalyst for me rethinking this was receiving a flavor of the despicable, deceitful Colin Cowherd day just after day. The grass is not always greener when you determine to protect other hosts. Mike may perhaps be a jerk at occasions, but he’s OUR jerk.”
On April 23, Funhouse told The Post’s Andrew Marchand he would not get started tweeting out Francesa clips all over again until he was receiving paid out for it.
“I have definitely no ideas to resume posting Mike’s clips,” @BackAftaThis reported with a chuckle at the time. “He enable me out of jail and I’m not likely back again willingly until I’m compensated handsomely for it.”
