It was the bite of the century.
WFAN icon Mike Francesa finally joined Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy for one of Barstool's famed pizza reviews Friday. The highly anticipated event happened at Justin Pizza in the shadows of Yankee Stadium hours before the Yankees and Astros met for Game 5 of the American League Championship Series.
A healthy contingent of WFAN and Barstool fans were on hand to witness the two sports media titans chow down while talking pizza and baseball.
It was a lunch date six months in the making. Portnoy called in to Francesa's show in April to extend the invitation. The longtime WFAN host initially shot down the idea, saying he had "no interest" and that pizza isn't really a passion of his.
"Millions of people would die to know what you think is good pizza," Portnoy told Francesa then.
Francesa, however, quickly began to change his tune, and a few days later said he was accepting the offer. But it took them several months to agree on a date and place.
