Cancelling the NYC Marathon
Who got sonned?: Mayor Bloomberg.
Key line: "This woulda been like if they ran a regatta through New Orleans after Katrina."
Leave it to Sports Radio's Godfather to be the voice of common sense and realness. Soon after this rant, the Mayor's office cancelled NYC Marathon. Coincidence? Maybe, but Francesa's loud mouth definitely contributed as a catalyst to put pressure on Mayor Bloomberg, and to knock some sense into him.
