WFAN's Mike Francesa willing to take a dive for charity
Here is an item I wrote for my Friday newspaper column that I am posting now because . . . well, I just can't resist:
When I heard Mike Francesa accept the invitation of Mets executive VP Dave Howard Wednesday to visit the dunk tank at Citi Field, I assumed one of two things:
That Francesa was kidding, or perhaps that he thought the invite was to be the dunker, not the dunkee.
I asked him about it Thursday. Turns out he was not kidding and that he is up for getting wet in public for a cause.
As long as its a nice, warm day and it would be for charity, Ill gladly go in the tank, he said.
Um, really? Im sure I will draw quite a crowd of Mets fans looking to dunk me. Im looking forward to it.
What would he charge? Well try to make it very steep for the media.
