Mike and Mike” the popular morning ESPN sports show ends after 18 years today. Every sports fan has their great memories of waking up to Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic’s show. They transformed sports talk radio and sports TV talk shows by their interesting commentary, irreverent segments, and their entertaining rapport with each other and their guests. They spoke about their families, their quirks, their phobias and through it all, made people look forward to waking up and listening to their banter. For most sports fans, it was part of their daily routine. Greenberg and Golic were inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2016. Greenberg will be moving on to his own morning TV show called “Get Up” while Golic will pair with Trey Wingo for a new morning drive show. As the signature Bob Hope 1938 song said, Thanks for the Memory guys! #mikeandmike

ESPN’s talented morning duo, Mike and Mike, are moving on after nearly 19 years working with each other. As of January 1st, 2018, Mike Greenberg will host a morning show (with different co-hosts and guests) from 7-10 am on ESPN airing again at 10:00 am on ESPN2, while Mike Golic will co-host a morning drive program with Trey Wingo and his son Mike Golic Jr. Greenberg stated, “One of the many benefits of working at ESPN is that change and evolution are in our DNA. My run with Golic has been an incredible experience that I’ll always treasure, but having the chance to engage multiple voices every morning in a dialogue on each day’s sports stories will be a great new challenge.”

Kurt Busch Testifies Girlfriend Is Assassin, Jets Hire Bowles, Mike Greenberg’s Novel

NASCAR

Kurt BuschIn a completely bizarre court testimony, NASCAR driver Kurt Busch testified that his former girlfriend Patricia Driscoll is an assassin….yes, that’s right “a trained assassin dispatched on covert missions around the world”. These claims all came about in court because Driscoll wants a protective order against Busch for alleged abuse.

FOOTBALL

The New York Jets have a new coach and new GM. Arizona’s former defensive coordinator, Tom Bowles, will try and lead the dreadful 4-12 Jets into a new era.

OTHER

Mike GreenbergIf you’ve ever watched Mike and Mike on ESPN (the highest rated sports talk show in the country), you know how talented and entertaining this team is. You may also know that Mike Greenberg (Greeny) is also a great novelist. He’s come out with his second novel, “My Father’s Wives”. It’s in pre-release now and it’s gotten great reviews. I’m ordering now!

Raiders Stun Chiefs, Blount To Patriots, Bills And Jets Play, Golic’s Butt Photo

FOOTBALL

In the NFL, it was Thursday Night Football between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders.  The Chiefs are red-hot right now.  They are tied for 1st place in the AFC West with Denver, and they just beat the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.  Plus, next week they have a showdown with Denver for a game that will definitely be important come playoff time.  Oakland, on the other hand, was 0-10 coming into this game, and nobody expected them to do anything spectacular.  You know what that means… TRAP GAME!!!

Yep, Kansas City definitely overlooked their meager opponent coming into the game.  They were already thinking about Denver, but Oakland takes this rivalry seriously, and there was a packed house in Oakland to root on the struggling Raiders.  The Raiders jumped out to a big lead thanks to an awesome rushing performance from LaTavius Murray.  Unfortunately, Murphy got a concussion and had to leave the game, but he instilled the “We Can Do It” attitude in the Raiders that they would use to get the win against the Chiefs.  They now have the winless monkey off of their back.  Oakland 24, Kansas City 20.

Elsewhere in the NFL, just one day after LeGarrett Blount was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers for “having a bad attitude”, his old team, the New England Patriots picked him up off waivers.  They are hoping that he won’t bring his negative energy to their organization, and that he will give them the running back depth they need headed into the playoffs.  Blount had a lot of success with the Pats last year, and they believe they know how to use him.

In a follow-up story, it looks like the Bills and the Jets WILL actually play this week.  But it won’t be on Sunday, it won’t be in Buffalo (because of the snow) and it won’t be in New York (because that wouldn’t be fair).  The game will actually be played on Monday night… in Detroit.  Detroit has an indoor stadium.

Mike GolicAnd finally, woke up to one of the funniest sights this morning….Mike Golic of Mike and Mike in the morning posing like Kim Kardashian’s magazine cover. Golic lost a bet to Greenberg when Northwestern (Greenberg’s alma mater) beat Notre Dame (Golic’s alma mater) and this was one of his punishments. For a full view (not that you want it) click here.
