Yes, today is April 1.
However, this year, April Fool’s Day happens to fall right after Easter Sunday.
And there just so happens to be a couple of photos circulating of Mike Francesa attending an Easter Sunday mass at a Manhasset, Long Island church.
One reason to be skeptical is that being largely unavailable to the public is one of Francesa’s specialties. And even when he does make a public appearance, he can’t get any peace and quiet, it seems.
But according to one of Francesa’s fellow parishioners, it doesn’t seem like there was any holy hecklement hurled his way. In fact, he even sang along with some of the psalms, says the testamental tipster.
Rather than scare him away by saying “hello,” he decided to stealthily snap a couple of photos and send them in to Barstool Sports. (It’s important to point out that Barstool has the original photos, because, well, I don’t want to be accused of ripping them off, or anything.)
And if it was a doppelganger that looked a lot like Mike Francesa and not the “Sports Pope” himself? Well, it wouldn’t be the first time he punked us (or he would have you believe, anyway).
