Mike Francesa weighs in on The Dress: 'Shame on everybody'

Friday February 27th, 2015

Mike Francesa's show on New York's WFAN is five-and-a-half hours long. It must be tough to fill all that time five days a week. That might be why Francesa spent nearly seven minutes talking about the debate over the color of that dress and Kevin Costner movies. 

"Somebody is laughing at everybody by getting the whole Western Hemisphere today to be looking at some jeweled dress to decide what color it is in a certain light," Francesa said. "Shame on everybody. There is a perfect example of the excesses of social media."

Well, Mike, it's not just the Western Hemisphere that's obsessing over this.

Francesa's former co-host, Chris "Mad Dog" Russo, also chimed in. 

Meanwhile, Francesa's listeners are getting into their own debate over the color of a different piece of clothing.
