In Memory of the Mawquis: 1974-2021

August 30th, 2021 · Comments


The themikefrancesa.com community lost a beloved poster, The Mawquis, back on July 13th, as many of us learned on his birthday, August 23rd.  On this tribute program, Dave, Gerry Will, Ron in NJ, A Couple Quickies and many many others come together to celebrate a most-memorable board poster.  We'll cover the constant he was on the message board, his great heart, his love for his mother, his wacky anecdotes, and the tragedy of his untimely death.    We also give a nod to his beloved teams:  Royals baseball, University of Tennessee football, and R.P.I. Hockey.  Plus, other folks from the Mike Francesa fan universe will stop by to share their memories of the beloved Mawquis and what he meant to all of us.  The DITCOW Family present a celebration of life for a one of a kind personality.


NOTE: Although not an actual Random Q's show, this episode includes a lot of our tmf.com friends in the spirit of previous Random Q's episodes.
