Mike Francesa has sipped his final Diet Coke on WFAN 660 AM...New York City's iconic radio station that is recognized as the first, 24/7, sports-talk station in America. Since 1989 (when he was partnered with Chris "Mad Dog" Russo), Francesa has thrown his weight around as a New York Sports Personality and Man Of Influence........and a LOT of weight it was!! Good Lord, what did that guy eat?! I heard when Mike Francesa would perspire, he would sweat Breyer's Ice Cream! In fact, Mike would sometimes ask his producer to get him a snack...which would be a seven-course meal! At one point Mike got so big...that WFAN was gonna change their letters to WFAT!! All jokes aside, Francesa contributed a lot...and he's got the diabetes to prove it!! Just kidding!! You'll be missed, Mike!
