    Wednesday in Yankee Stadium, in a fractionalized second, a 2-year-old was struck in the head with a 105-mph line-drive foul. At last word, she remained hospitalized. The next day on WFAN, this there-but-for-the-grace-go-thee episode was exploited by Mike Francesa to remind peons that he’s wealthy and privileged, thus doesn’t have to worry about such misfortune...

    Forget the actual process of signing Colin Kaepernick. Merely the idea of him in a football uniform again is enough to make head coaches buckle and former star quarterbacks vent. There is nearly zero chance Kaepernick takes another snap in the NFL, his filing a collusion grievance against the league this weekend sealing his fate....

On Sunday, the former Islander popped the question to the 25-year-old daughter of WFAN host and one-time Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason, after several years of...

    They weren’t laughing. Chris Russo and Mike Francesa took some shots Wednesday over WFAN’s struggling ratings in the months after Francesa’s departure, and morning-show hosts Boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti, as well as WFAN’s vice president of programming, Mark Chernoff, responded Monday morning. “Classless, it really was,” Esiason said in comments first noted by Newsday. “I’ll tell...

    It’s an eye for an eye in Chris Russo’s book. Russo, one half of WFAN’s old “Mike & the Mad Dog” show, shot back at Boomer Esiason and his former WFAN colleagues who took offense to the jokes he and Mike Francesa made during a reunion show last week about the station’s declining ratings. Starting...

    The former faces of WFAN are now the faces on the target board. The radio war between Chris Russo, Mike Francesa and the ones they left behind continued Wednesday morning, when Boomer Esiason again responded to their shots on the “Afternoon Drive Show,” taking the mantle as the voice of FAN. Chris Carlin, Maggie Gray...

    The trio in the middle of the WFAN vs. “Mike & the Mad Dog” spat came to their own defense on Tuesday for the first time, at least publicly. A week after Mike Francesa and Chris Russo mocked their old station as a whole, and the ratings of the afternoon hosts in particular, Chris Carlin,...

    Mike Francesa says he is coming home. A day after The Post’s Andrew Marchand reported that a desperate Francesa was trying to work his way back to WFAN, the broadcasting legend confirmed his intentions to Newsday. “It is time to return to WFAN,” Francesa told the paper. It remains unclear what exactly what that role...

    Mike Francesa’s replacements are better at one thing than the WFAN legend. On a day of turmoil on the sports station, Chris Carlin, Maggie Gray and Bart Scott took the high road in complimenting Francesa even as he’s poised to take back some of his airtime from them. “All I could tell you is this:...

    Back, after these disses. Mike Francesa is being welcomed back to WFAN not with open arms but with anger. The tenants of the radio station — and perhaps its biggest face since Francesa left in December, Boomer Esiason — took some shots at the returning sports-radio legend Wednesday, a day after he announced his second...

    Hello, again. Today we study Einstein’s theory of relativity and his conclusion that you can’t pick your relatives. And as Confuse-us said, “The small of the back is always opposite the large of the stomach.” And if I’m making no sense, you ain’t read nothin’ yet. My friend Marty retired to Florida, but became bored....
