Mike Francesa Wears #FORG1V3 T-Shirt, Chats With Bald Vinny

NEW YORK (WFAN) -- Vinny Milano, affectionately known around these parts as "Bald Vinny," stopped by the WFAN studios on Friday afternoon to chat with host Mike Francesa.

The most famous bleacher creature of them all, Milano is currently selling #FORG1V3 T-shirts in support of embattled Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.

Francesa made his loyal fans proud by trying one of the shirts on.

"It's a little play on the RE2PECT thing that Nike was doing with (Derek) Jeter," Milano said. "I think a lot of people get real negative these days and everybody just wants to be quick to get on somebody's case. I think it's time for fans to be a little supportive. It's easy to cheer for the icon. I like to cheer for the guy who needs a little but of support, so A-Rod could certainly use a little bit of fan support. I'm happy to get behind him."
