This is old news, but I remember hearing a bit about this years ago and never heard the whole story. A caller mentioned earlier that Francesa auditioned for MNF, but lost out to Dennis Miller, and asked Mike if that was true, and what the story was behind it, and Francesa hand-waved him and said nothing more then that it was so long ago he wasn't even going to talk about it. I wonder how pissed Francesa was, losing out to someone like Dennis Miller. We all know Mike believes laughing and jokes should be punishable by hanging if they are committed during sports talks of any kind. He must have been furious. I do remember him trashing Dennis Millers antics back during his MNF days.
