I know that I know nothing. Too bad though

Mike is obnoxious and has been lazy since he lost the Mad Dog but the guy loves NY sports and entertains his listeners.I think I may be the only person that grew up in upstate NY and lived in NYC that wasn't a fan of Mike.
Not saying I don't appreciate his impact, I do. I'm sure whatever accolades he has received and will in the future are well-deserved.
Just never resonated with me (I'm a Giants, Mets, Knicks, Rangers fan).
I'm probably on an island with this.
The only reason I love Mike Francesa is because he is the opposite of the toxic Boston sports radio scene. My city has hosts who do nothing but troll fans and make them miserable and stoke anger to get calls.
Mike never does that to his listeners. He may say stupid stuff, he may be embarrassing level wrong on his takes but he doesn't try to ruin sports for his listeners. He gets sports are entertainment and doesn't try to ruin them for his audience.
Listen to Felger and Mazz for one football season and you would think the New England Patriots are the Miami Dolphins.
