Mike Francesa rips Peyton Manning for kissing Papa John

Monday February 8th, 2016

New York sports talk radio host Mike Francesa is having an incredible show this Monday afternoon after the Super Bowl. He’s ripped the broadcast for having too many commercials, Bruno Mars for not being as good as he was the last time he played halftime and Cam Newton for walking out on the media.

By far, though, he is most upset about Peyton Manning and Papa John kissing on the field.

“Peyton, the first guy you kiss can’t be Papa John, OK,” Francesa said. “I have no idea why Papa John’s on the field. Shame on the NFL for having him on the field.

“If I see that as a commercial I’ll throw up.”

“That’s out of line,” he added later.

Here is the kiss he is referring to, in case you missed it.

On top of it all, his callers have really brought their best takes. One criticized Peyton Manning for sending a bad message to his eight-year-old son by mentioning that he would drink beer.
