Mike Golic To Get Waxed On Air

Monday, April 27, 2009


This is a terribly horrible idea, but apparently Mike Golic will be getting waxed on-air to pay back a bet. Every year, Mike and Mike make a bet on who will have the better NCAA Tourney bracket (last year Greenberg had to milk a cow), and that's the payment for this year's loss. Via ESPN....

ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the Morning co-host Mike Golic lost the “Bracket Wager” challenge to co-host Mike Greenberg and now must pay the price. Listeners voted and Golic will get waxed live during the show on Wednesday, April 29, at 8:10 a.m. The waxing can be heard on ESPN Radio and seen on the ESPN2 simulcast.

“I really have no idea what to expect with the waxing, this is really more of Greeny's world than mine,” Golic says. “I expect this to be the only waxing of my life, yet I do expect to scream.”

Greenberg says, “Mike Golic being waxed live on the air may represent a new low, not just for him, or for Mike and Mike, but perhaps for the medium. This may be the low water mark in the history of radio. I fear Marconi is spinning in his grave.”
If anyone has Howard Stern On Demand, check out "Richard Getting Waxed", just to see how painful the process is. It makes for hilarious radio though, and I'll be sure to have some of the clips for you tomorrow.

Didn't Golic have to get his eyebrows waxed a few years ago? What are they going to wax? We can only hope it's not a Brailian wax or something.

These two get worse and worse every day. We get it, you're different.

What makes them different is what makes them great... or so we're told.

You are incorrect, last year was the food eating competition with Golic gorging himself, the cow milking was two years ago

In terms of NFL draft picks:
Golic is as bad as the Raiders first round pick.
Greenberg is as bad as their second round selection.

Put the two of them together and they're ten pounds of Isiah Thomas Fail in a five pound bag.

"I'm neuroutic," "And I'm fat," does not make for an interesting or intelligent show.

So their moving into the gay demographic more and more.

Good marketing decision.

What I can't understand is why it took three weeks after the NCAA tournament for them to get this done, and why it wasn't done the same week. (The eating contest and milk-a-cow stunts didn't happen until May or June, as I recall.) It can't be because they have too many other scintillating things to do on the radio.

Mike and Mike almost make J.T. the Brick seem like a good radio host, that's how bad they're getting.
