Mike Francesa Sure Knows How To Open A Swag BagBy: Emily Greene - January 23, 2014
Getting swag is a perk of being a celebrity, whether you’re A-list or D-list. One of the next events where gift bags will be given is Super Bowl XLVIII, and this swag kit will be given to those attending the game once they enter MetLife Stadium. One radio personality not only knows what will be in the swag bags, he shared the items with his audience.
Radio talk show host Mike Francesa, of Mike’s On: Francesa on the FAN in New York City, knows how to open a bag of swag, especially when it comes a Super Bowl swag bag.
In past years the Super Bowl has taken place in warm climates, this year will be a different story. Items included are to help keep you warm(ish).
Once Francesa got all of the items out of the bag, which he noticed also doubles as a seat cushion, he first tried on the ear muffs. Or he at least attempted to try them on. While trying to see if he could adjust them Francesa said, “They have to be adjustable right? They’re not gonna fit my head.” After continuing to struggle to get them to fit his head he added, “Maybe they’re made for kids, I dunno.”
Francesa continued to ooh and aah over the items from the swag kit. When he found out hand warmers were included, “Super Bowl hand warmer. Ya got one of those. Ya got two of those. Ya got three of those. Those are good! Ya put ’em in your gloves, ya put ’em in your socks.”
The swag kit also includes gloves, a wool hat, a hand-warming pouch similar to the ones NFL players use, and some sort of bandana type item that Francesa also tried on. “I don’t put anything on my hair … If you had hair like mine, you wouldn’t cover it up either.”
We also learn that not only is Francesa not a fan of Fox’s New Girl, he’s never even heard of the show or its star, Zooey Deschanel. “Is that a TV show? This is a show on Fox that I wouldn’t watch if you paid me.” And when referring to Deschanel: “I don’t know who she is.”
A new episode of New Girl will air after the Super Bowl with guest star Prince.
