Don La Greca is no rookie. The New York radio host and sports broadcaster has been the co-host of The Michael Kay Show for 20 years. He’s covered the New York Rangers since 2005. He’s was a longtime host of a New York Jets pre and post-game shows and he’s spent a number of years covering the New York Yankees.
On Monday, La Greca absolutely lost his mind.
Don La Greca Gets In Heated Argument With Caller
With host Michael Kay off air for the day, caller “Mike from Manalapan” phoned in to speak with La Greca. The two argued over Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo. This led the caller to say La Greca made “one of the most moronic comments ever” and it “actually proves why (La Greca and co-host Peter Rosenberg) would fail if Michael (Kay) wasn’t part of the show.”
The comment caused La Greca to absolutely explode and defend his accolades and history.
And here, we, go…
“Stop with your Michael Kay! I’m on the air! I worked at the ‘FAN before Michael Kay. I do Rangers games without Michael Kay. Sixteen years doing pre and post for the Jets. Guess what? No Michael Kay! I’ve got a podcast that’s in the top-50 in every country on the planet. No Michael Kay! I have two kids, I have a wife, 17 years I’ll be married to her in September. Guess what? No Michael Kay! I’ve got hair that people would die to have. Michael Kay? Nothing! I’m a fabulous driver. Michael Kay’s got nothing to do with it. I’m one of the best friends you could ever have in your life. Zero to do with Michael Kay! Do not ever say to me, you wouldn’t have the guts to say it to my face, Michael Kay’s got nothing to do with what I am and who I am. I can work with Michael Kay, I can work without Michael Kay.”
Honestly, the comment was pretty low from the caller and we can’t blame La Greca for then hitting back. What’s even better is that he did it in such incredible fashion.
