Rise to Stardom

Main article: Mike and the Mad Dog

Russo's rise in popularity happened rapidly. Russo joined WFAN in December 1988 as an overnight, weekend and fill-in host.[7] He caught the attention of former WFAN Morning Show Host, Don Imus. Imus brought Russo on-board the Imus in the Morning show as the Sports Reporter. The attention Russo received on Imus was enormous. Imus also later helped promote Russo's nickname. By early 1989, his work on Imus led to Russo getting his own regular weekend show on Saturday Mornings. When Pete Franklin's drive time Show from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. was not renewed by WFAN station management, WFAN paired up Russo with Mike Francesa, who at the time was a co-host on the mid-morning show. The show was dubbed the Mike and the Mad Dog show and was launched on September 5, 1989 at 3 p.m. Mike and the Mad Dog is an afternoon drive sports radio program on WFAN in New York City. ...

The combination paired up Francesa's hard-hitting style with Russo's unorthodox and humorous style and proved to be a huge success. Francesa and Russo's show quickly became the signature show for WFAN, as well as among the most influential sports talk shows in the country.


Tirades

Chris Russo's rants often involve New York sports teams, most frequently the Yankees. The San Francisco Giants are the only team in which he has a rooting interest. Russo's pairing with Mike Francesa, a lifelong Yankee fan, adds enough friction to make their unexpected evenhandedness the template for success.

In 2003, after his beloved San Francisco Giants lost to the eventual-World Series champion Florida Marlins in the NLDS 3 games to 1, Russo went on perhaps his most famous tirade where, among other things, he states that he would give up his 3 (at the time) children to see the Giants win a World Series[1].

On July 31, 2006, Russo got into a heated argument with Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman on the respective merits of the players Cashman had recently acquired from the Phillies. Russo claimed that SP Cory Lidle was simply not a good pitcher and OF Bobby Abreu lacked the intangibles to lead a winning team.

Russo openly dislikes the Yankees' financial dominance and resulting success. However, his beloved Giants' high-priced acquisition of Pitcher, Barry Zito, in the 2006-07 off-season, exposed some admitted hypocrisy in his statements. Maddog had decried Zito's market value, until the Giants unexpectedly signed him to a contract. He defended the signing, when it was announced. Russo was later forced to admit his own irrational fandom.


On December 4, 2006, Russo blasted Sports Illustrated for naming Dwyane Wade their Sportsman of the Year. He claimed that Wade was given the award based solely on game performance and that there were better candidates such as Roger Federer, who won 12 tournaments in 2006, including 3 grand slams. Russo then continued his rant and said that the Heat wouldn't have even won the championship had referee Bennett Salvatore not made a very questionable call to put Wade on the free-throw line at the end of game 5. Russo continued the tirade the next day, explaining that they gave the "stupid" award to Wade rather than Federer because Federer couldn't care less and was vacationing in Dubai, where he trains. Francesa and Russo spent a segment of their show on December 5, 2006 making sarcastic comments towards SI and criticizing some of their previous award decisions. is the 338th day of the year (339th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On December 22, 2006, Russo, hosting the show by himself on a football Friday, spent nearly the entire 5 1/2 hour show slamming numerous movie critics for their unflattering reviews of the movie, We Are Marshall, the film about the Marshall University football team's tragic plane crash in 1970. Russo called the movie one of the better sports movies he's ever seen and was shocked to see that the movie was killed in the papers. Among the critics he said deserved to be "smacked around" were Stephen Holden of the New York Times, Jack Matthews (New York Daily News), Claudia Puig (USA Today), Jan Stuart (Newsday), and Kyle Smith (New York Post), who incorrectly described the plot of the story in his review. He continued to say that "half of these critics don't know their fannies from their elbows" and that "when they come knocking, (these critics) should hand in their playbooks." is the 356th day of the year (357th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On February 22, 2007, Russo, again hosting by himself, opened the show by blasting society in general for the crime activity in Las Vegas for the 2007 NBA All-Star Game, as well as the attention that the Anna Nicole Smith investigation and the Britney Spears saga are receiving. During his diatribe, Russo yelled, "I wouldn’t watch that if I was on a desert island, death upon me." He continued his rant the next day by saying, "If it was in my backyard, I’d draw the curtains," while discussing the media's fascination with Smith and Spears. “There must be enough dopey housewives out there who have some interest," Russo admitted. is the 53rd day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The next day, Russo received a call from a relative of a victim of the Pacman Jones-related shooting in Las Vegas during the NBA’s All-Star Weekend. The victim was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot in the spinal chord. During the next segment of the show, at 6:00, Russo blew a fuse, leading to perhaps his greatest tirade of all-time. He ripped Roger Goodell and the National Football League for not taking any action when their players are involved in off the field incidents. “Does the NFL care at all about its image?” Russo asked. He then started screaming, “ENOUGH’S ENOUGH! THIS IS A DISGRACE...THROW HIM OUT OF THE LEAGUE! THROW HIM THE HELL OUT! IT’S A DISGRACE! WHAT’S THE NFL DOING? THROW HIM OUT!!!”[8] Adam Bernard Pacman Jones (born September 30, 1983) is an African American cornerback and kick return specialist currently signed to the Tennessee Titans American football franchise of the National Football League (NFL). ...

On April 12, 2007, at the start of their show, Russo and Francesa destroyed MSNBC for firing Don Imus less than 12 hours before WFAN was set to begin their 18th Annual Radiothon to benefit the Tomorrows Children's Fund, the CJ Foundation for SIDS and the Imus Ranch. Russo ripped the network for "washing their hands" of the matter and pointing the blame at WFAN. Francesa called the decision, "one of the least gracious acts he has ever seen", as well as a "cowardly act." He also said that they now have "no loyalty and no guts" to suit their "no ratings." This was followed up the next day, when Russo and Francesca continued their criticism of the Imus firing by criticizing Imus' "friends" (such as Tim Russert) for not standing by him during this difficult period. is the 102nd day of the year (103rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
