Legendary radio personality Mike Francesa is apparently very excited about the potential for a widespread legalized sports betting landscape, so much so, he’s inventing things that already exist. .
Earlier this week, he spent a few minutes talking about how if states with legal sports wagering “were smart”, they’d create and sponsor some betting “games” that are skill-based, low-risk and high-reward. These contests, he explains, would be ideal for those who may not necessarily want to bet through a sportsbook.
With legalized sports betting upon us, Mike Francesa came up with a terrific idea today. It seems that Big Mike has invented daily fantasy sports. pic.twitter.com/Qlwm3ACbYA

The leader in daily fantasy Draft Kings had some fun with Francesa’s idea, and sent out this funny tweet. Might be time to retire Mike, everything has already been said and done.
Sounds familiar. 🤔 https://t.co/0r6EetRrCv
