Mike Francesa Takes On Twitter

WFAN radio host Mike Francesa is legendary for his willigness to soft-pedal players or executives from his favorite teams, while playing vicious -- and often clueless -- attack dog for those he does not like. Well, today, Francesa turned his vitriol on Twitter, which he says should be illegal for athletes and members of the media.

"You're never going to catch me tweeting," declared Francesa, who amazingly had to ask a caller if Twitter was a service a person had to pay to use.

Here is the first video, from SI.com's Jimmy Traina. Here is Traina's second video, with more of Francesa's idiotic ramblings.

How does Francesa still have a show? And since he does, why does anyone still watch or listen? The guy is out of touch with the sports he talks about, has no tolerance for anyone who has an opinion different from his and is obviously also out of touch with the society in which he lives.
