NEW YORK (WFAN) — On Oct. 13, 2005, with the Yankees fresh off an ALDS defeat at the hands of the Angels, reporters were gathered in the Yankee Stadium clubhouse waiting to interview players who stopped by to clear out the lockers.
It was slow going throughout the day, and there was no food on hand for the media.
“You would make so many friends if you sent a couple of pizzas over to the Yankee clubhouse,” WFAN reporter Sweeny Murti told Mike and the Mad Dog.
And Mike Francesa and Chris “Mad Dog” Russo did just that, sending over eight pies and sodas.
“On behalf of everybody here, let me thank you guys for lunch,” Murti told Mike and the Mad Dog before leaving for the day.
