Mike And Mike Are Going Fishing

Thursday, January 24, 2008

I don't know why they feel the need to keep doing these stunts, but far be it from me to tell anyone what to do. The Mike and Mike Show is traveling to Greenville, South Carolina to cover the Bassmaster Classic...

Mike & Mike in the Morning will broadcast live, 6 a.m.-10 a.m. ET Friday, Feb. 22, from the 38th Bassmaster Classic launch site at Portman Marina on South Carolina’s Lake Hartwell. Fifty of the world’s top anglers will then start their three-day odyssey for a chance at $1.2 million in prizes, including the winner’s purse of $500,000 and the prestigious title of Bassmaster Classic champion.

ESPN2 will devote 11 hours to Classic programming over the three days of competition, and www.Bassmaster.com will provide extensive hourly coverage, including live, streaming video of the daily weigh-ins.

“It’ll be new to a lot of the listeners out there,” Golic said of the live broadcast from the Classic. “A lot of these anglers have really good personalities, so they’ll be able to explain their craft, and with a little bit of humor. They could certainly open the eyes of some of the listeners to what they do.”
That sounds like fun. I'm sure Greenberg loves to fish and doing well, man stuff.

While I can't picture the fishermen sitting around watching Golic making Greenberg touch worms, it was nice of ESPN PR to acknowledge that what the fishermen came for really starts after the Mike and Mike show. A subtle jab, but you have to take what you can get.

Greenberg better watch out with those pooched out collagen-puffed fishlips of his.

I'm laying 5:1 odds that Greenberg gets a fish hook stuck somewhere on his body.

Please, God. Not that screaming fisherman dude from New Jersey, whatever the Hell his name is. I think he did the Running Man after catching a fish a couple of years ago.

Greenberg really will do anything that they put in front of him.
