San Francisco Giants treat Chris 'Mad Dog' Russo as 'Mr. Giant'- did show from Willie McCovey suite -Neil Best

10/29, "Dog is Mad for Giants," Neil Best Watchdog: "Chris Russo just called on his way from the airport to the Sirius XM studios in Manhattan after
  • returning from a triumphant week in San Francisco.

The famously passionate Giants fan said the city is far more “juiced up’’ than it was in 1989 and 2002 in part because the team’s postseason run has been such a surprise and in part because this is a more likable team than those.

  • “It’s a cozy, nutty, ragamuffin, misfit team,’’ he said. “They gravitate to that kind of team.’’

Russo said call volume to his show has been heavy as listeners react to his excitement as the self-described “loudest’’ Giants fan in America.

  • The team itself treated him during his stay as “Mr. Giant,’’ he said,

giving him access to A-list guests and setting him up to do his show from

  • Willie McCovey’s personal suite.

It’s a fun team,’’ Russo said. “They can taste it.’’"

This is Chris 'Mad Dog Russo', very big SF Giants fan, one day while working at WFAN radio in late summer of 2005 or 2006. His show along with Mike Francesa was simulcast on the YES Network (thus the video). Mike was on vacation so Chris was having some fun. He hates the Yankees and was hoping that by wearing a Yankee ski cap and doing a rant in the summer that he would jinx them into not making the post season. I obtained the above image from Neil Best's WatchDog column on August 8, 2007. Chris of course now has his own show on Sirius XM.
