The Mike Francesa soccer interview is hilarious

(The Morning Call)
The World Cup is going down right now and in the wake of record numbers for the exciting United States-Ghana match on Monday evening, America's own Mike Francesa decided to have on veteran St. John's soccer coach Dr. Andy Masur to discuss a little beautiful game on his WFAN program simulcast on FS1/2. Now, Francesa will be the first to tell you that he is no fan of soccer. However, that helps make this interview even more hilarious. Let's go to the videotape.

(Here's some crisp audio)

And just in case you wanted to see the clip that seems to have everybody talking, check it out below:

Francesa and other sports personalities (like his colleague Joe Benigno, who doesn't like that the USMNT coach is not American) that don't ever talk about soccer are in a rather precarious position. If they don't talk about it at all, they will be attacked for ignoring the biggest sporting event in the world. If they do talk about it, their lack of knowledge will be thoroughly dissected. So goes it with some soccer fans.

So I have no problem with Francesa giving it a go. It only resulted in some tremendous radio.
