Because I live and work in central NJ, I am in the narrow channel that gets both NY and Philly media outlets on TV and radio. So I started listening to Mike Missanelli now on ESPN Philly during my commute home. Sure, it's heavy on Eagles and Phillies (blegh), but "Mikey Miss" is hilarious. He has a great show. Miles ahead of Francesa's bore-fest.
Missanelli has been around a longtime and has paid his dues. Good guy and enjoys his job.
