How Did Mike and Mike Land That Bo Ryan Interview? "Dogged Leg Work"

Remember when Mike and Mike landed that interview with Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan? That's right, it happened this morning, but ESPN's Front Row wants to take a second and reflect: How'd we do it? » 4/19/12 7:21pm 4/19/12 7:21pm

Stare At Colin Cowherd For A While, For A Good Cause

Here is how we know ESPN hates people with cancer: if you want to donate money to The V Foundation, you're forced to hang out with the likes of Colin Cowherd and Mike & Mike. » 7/13/11 1:10pm 7/13/11 1:10pm

Stephen A. Smith's The One Starting Rumors About LeBron's Personal Life

If you tuned in to the ambient noise of the ninth circle of hell this morning, you heard Stephen A. Smith on Mike and Mike talking about LeBron James. And why yes, he did throw some shit at the wall. SportsGrid has the audio, as well as this summary: » 6/09/11 3:15pm 6/09/11 3:15pm

Here's Mike Greenberg Dressed As Justin Bieber

Sports talk radio, of the aired-on-television variety: still going strong! We would prefer to just leave it at that, and to let you reach your own conclusions about how Mike Greenberg came to wear white jeans and a Bieber wig. Maybe it's just in his nature. » 5/04/11 7:05pm 5/04/11 7:05pm

New Mike And Mike Book "Enthralling," "Humanizes A Downtrodden,…

Either someone at Amazon is having a bit of sport with Fat Man and Little Boy's forthcoming Rules for Sports and Life, or the pair has written the definitive treatise on life in North Korea. [Amazon, see "Editorial Reviews"] » 3/01/10 1:15pm 3/01/10 1:15pm

Mike & Mike Would Like To Make Your Valentine's Day Miserable

After 20 emails, ESPN readers are confused as to why Golic and Greenberg are trying to coax them into entering a contest for a chance to win, what appears to be, two snakes 69-ing on top of a diamond. [ESPN.com] » 2/11/10 12:20pm 2/11/10 12:20pm

Mike Golic's Appearance On Dan Patrick's Radio Show Will Not Get Him…

Yesterday morning, while on set in Miami, Dan Patrick half-jokingly invited ESPN's Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg to come on to his show. Greenberg declined, but Golic gleefully obliged. Technically, ESPN personalities are forbidden from appearing on competing shows. CHAOS. » 2/03/10 2:00pm 2/03/10 2:00pm

What Is This Slumbering, Slobbery Beast Asleep On The Floor?

It's a Mike Golic. The "Mike and Mike" show now has its own website and is running daily photo caption contests for their listeners and ESPN readers. (No Facebook direct connectedness is available. Yet.) The comments have so far been predictably ESPN commenter-like. Observe: » 12/10/08 6:30pm 12/10/08 6:30pm

Can't Wait To Hear What Greeny Says About This

I think it would be a really compelling episode of Mike & Mike in the Morning if Golic, followed by a handheld camera, were to go down to the South Bend police station to bail out his son, Mike Jr. The lad was arrested for drinking at a party, along with other members of the Notre Dame football team, on Saturday… » 9/22/08 9:15am 9/22/08 9:15am

Bonnie Bernstein Is Not An Expert On The Middle East

Bonnie Bernstein, everybody's favorite Jersey sideline reporter, has had a relatively quiet couple of years at ESPN. That is, until a couple of days ago, when she made a bit of a verbal misstep on the Mike and Mike show. » 6/27/08 11:40am 6/27/08 11:40am

Dana Jacobson Has The Sole Appropriate Reaction To The Mike And Mike…

Last Friday night, they held that "Mike And Mike Celebrity Roast" thing in Atlantic City. It was about as entertaining as you'd expected it to be, according to the Press Of Atlantic City. (No offense to Trey Wingo, but when you host half the show, and the other half is hosted by Jeffrey Ross, you're in trouble.) But… » 1/14/08 2:20pm 1/14/08 2:20pm

The Upcoming Vivisection Of Mike And Mike, Truly

On January 11, 2008, you're likely to still be recovering from Dennis Kucinich's stunning wins in Iowa and New Hampshire on his way to become the 44th President of the United States. So there's not much better way to clear your cluttered mind than to attend the Mike and Mike Celebrity Roast. » 12/05/07 1:35pm 12/05/07 1:35pm

Does Anyone On Earth Own A Fathead?

We ask with genuine curiosity: Who in the world puts a Fathead on their wall? What started out as an odd marketing campaign with Ben Roethlisberger screaming at us to "get a Fathead," or "be a Fathead," or whatever, has clearly grown into ... well, a larger marketing campaign. We've never quite seen such an… » 9/12/07 11:10am 9/12/07 11:10am

Buzzsaw-49ers MNF Live Blog



All right, we'll tell you right now: This is a terrible idea. Not only have we been up since 4:15 this morning, but we're also in the odd position of attempting to type non-stop, for three hours, about the season opener of a team for which we have an emotional connection. And we're going to do it while watching Mike… » 9/10/07 10:20pm 9/10/07 10:20pm

What's That Lassie? Mike Greenberg Needs Our Help?

The sun is shining these days on ESPN radio host Mike Greenberg. He's on the backup team for "Monday Night Football," he's got a wacky "Everybody Loves Greeny!" book on the shelves, he's introducing spelling bees on network television and he's the official face of Arena Football, for better or worse. Everything's… » 7/10/07 3:00pm 7/10/07 3:00pm

Mike And Mike Are Everywhere You Look

All told, we think we gave Mike and Mike too hard of a time on the whole spelling bee thing. They weren't so bad; maybe they toned down the schtick for ABC. Anyway, as part of ESPN's plan to have Mike Greenberg (the gay one) and Mike Golic (the fat one) broadcasting every event that Berman and Tirico haven't already… » 6/20/07 1:30pm 6/20/07 1:30pm

How Do You Spell "P-L-E-A-S-E L-O-R-D G-O-D S-T-O-P T-A-L-K-I-N-G?"

Sometimes we wonder if we are too hard on ESPN. Sure, collectively, they seem to have sucked the very life out of sports, packaging schtick and corporate pablum into a stew of impossible-to-digest soulless muck. (And, unlike the rest of us, they mix metaphors!) But they're still just individuals, out there doing a… » 5/16/07 1:45pm 5/16/07 1:45pm

Celebrating The True Romance Of Mike Golic

You might have been cynical about the "Mike and Mike Marriage Madness" last Friday — which was "tastefully Gator," in the words of the groom — but that's because you're cold-hearted and don't believe in the "special company [ESPN] has created and nurtured every day." Soulless bastards. » 5/30/06 1:45pm 5/30/06 1:45pm

A Match Made In Bristol

That "Mike and Mike Wedding Madness" wedding happened this morning, with the two Florida Gators fans hitching up in front of the his-and-her Gators mascots, Bill Walton and a smattering of ESPN2 viewers. » 5/26/06 12:45pm 5/26/06 12:45pm
