Watch: Mike Francesa thought Todd Gurley actually exchanged jersey with referee

Mike Francesa

Iconic New York sports radio personality Mike Francesa went viral again on Monday for all the wrong reasons.

As one might imagine, the WFAN host had a lot of thoughts on Sunday’s conference championships, including the performance of the referees in the NFC title game. He was particularly appalled that one referee swapped jerseys with Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley, whose team benefited from an awful non-call late in regulation.

There’s just one problem. That image did make the rounds on social media, including Gurley’s Instagram, but it was pretty obviously fake. Gurley was just embracing the joke and the fact that his team got a bit lucky.

Fear not, though, as Francesa quickly corrected the record after a commercial break.

Poor Mike. This isn’t the first time he’s embarrassed himself on the air, but this was a pretty rough one.
