For those who don’t know, there is a new, glorious tradition in New York City.  Every year, the biggest mongos in the world gather for a day to celebrate everything Mike Francesa aka The Sports Pope.  I am 0 for 2 when it comes to attending FrancesaCons, but that has been due to work, not desire.  I will do everything in my power to make it there next year.  Anyway, here is a quick journey down the rabbit hole of the best day of the year for people who love the most iconic sports radio blowhard of all-time.

h/t @JonFrat for recording that Youtube video, which was clearer than the movies Jerry Seinfeld used to shoot back in his bootlegging days.  And of course to @FrancesaCon for organizing the whole damn thing.

Name the last hip hop combo that dropped fire like this.  Kanye and Jigga? Pac and Dre?  Biggie and Puffy (where B.I.G. ghostwrites the entire song)?  This duo drops one song per year and it scorches the entire Earth.  Damn it feels good to have your team quarterbacked by a gangsta.  I need multiple tattoo tears on Eli’s babyface ASAP, though.  The Louisiana rap game is back in full force.  Next up is a Manning Hip Hop Camp.  A few other thoughts: (more…)
