The Votes Are In And Mike & Mike On SportsCenter Was A Roaring Success!

Tuesday, July 24, 2007


See what I did there? Sarcasm is a gift (whispered like RATM does in the song Freedom...Unh!!!). I guess it's really counterproductive to even address this (but I am anyway) because really....what did you/we expect? There weren't any games yesterday and we've been bombarded with the same news stories all week.

The whole thing turned out to be one giant commercial for M&M in the Morning. The hour and a half could only be described with such words as pointless, nonsense, and train-wreck. But I guess it did accomplish one thing....I actually watched the 6pm SportsCenter for the first time in months. Also, someone live-blogged the whole thing, which is hilarious and awesome in its own right. Here are some of the highlights....

6:15 - Hey! Its a highlight. And only 15 minutes in…

6:30 - Mike & Mike clips…why? I have no idea.

6:39 - Hey! Highlight #2 of tonights SportsCenter. Thats two every twenty minutes…awesome.

6:50 - We can’t get away from Greenberg, he is involved in Who’s Now…wearing different clothes. HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?!?!?!

6:55 - We get it, Golic’s fat. You don’t have to show him eating food during SportsCenter.

7:30 - So there you have it. A failed experiment, but you can’t blame ESPN for trying. I guess these guys were just meant for the radio…
Yep....that about sums it up.

I only made it through the first break, barely, then had to turn it off. Somewhere Tom Mees is rolling in his grave...

Scary as it sounds I think this is the direction the WWL is heading.

With DP leaving, Berman (hopefully) nearing the end, and every other male anchor/analyst involved in a sex scandal, M&M are the future of the newtowrk.

Guarantee within two months they have their own game show.

What am I missing with Mike and Mike? I've never heard their radio show, but my brother seems to like it. What's the big deal?

Their morning show is all about "Look at us on the radio now!" The Sportscenter was worde. ESPN, don't do this again!
