I Need A FavorI try my best not to use Hot Clicks for my own personal amusement, but I have to make an exception today, and I need you non-New Yorkers out there to help me out. Sports radio station WFAN is celebrating its 25th anniversary next week, and it's running a poll to decide which long-time caller should join host Mike Francesa on the air next week. Mike "John Sterling" in Mayopac MUST win this poll. If you're a Howard Stern listener, Mike is also known as Sour Shoes. The guy is very funny and does tremendous impressions. If you can just take one second to vote here, I would be very grateful.
