I'm not going to lie to you all....I enjoy me some ESPN Outdoors from time to time. While I'm sure a lot of you are in the same boat (see what I did there?) I don't know if I can handle 11 hours of the Bassmaster Classic. Who do you ask is putting this whole thing on (did you even have to ask?)?
Every minute of the excitement of the 38th Bassmaster Classic, from multiple Classic venues, will be presented by ESPN2, ESPN Radio and www.Bassmaster.com. ESPN2 will provide 11 hours of programming through the three days of competition, topping off the extensive coverage with two more hours Feb. 28.They get up early in those parts, so I don't know if I'll be able to catch any of the "action", but I'm sure the hell going to try (maybe I can stay up all night). I wouldn't want to miss Golic falling into the water at some point.
On the first day of Classic competition, fans at Hartwell’s Portman Marina will be treated to a live production of ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the Morning. Host Mike Golic, who’s also an analyst for NFL and college football programming on ESPN and ESPN2, will broadcast from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. to more than 355 affiliates nationwide. ESPN’s Erik Kuselias will co-host with Golic.
