Friday's Mike and the Mad Dog show has to be one of the most anticipated listens (or watches for those on YES) in recent years. It will place Mike and Chris in the studio together for the first time since the Neil Best story of their potential divorce. Reunions happen all the time in sports and pop culture. Sometimes they work out, other times.. not so much.
With a shout out to a long since deceased program that a few of us from the blog have a soft spot in our heart for, ESPN's CLASSIC NOW, we bring you... THE NEXT. A chance to analyze the present by looking at the past. We seek out famous reunions as a guide to show us what will happen with Mike and Chris
Will the Mike and the Mad Dog reunion be THE NEXT...
1. Simon/Garfunkel.. the two get together for one big show, millions listen and watch. They spend an uncomfortable amount of time together on stage doing their classics, barely looking at one another and secretely still hating each other while knowing that it will never be the same again and after the show part and go their seperate ways... OR
2. The Police: They get back together, tour the country for one final hurrah promising to never reunite again and yet one member still has a huge solo career that he can return to. (in this scenario Mike would be Sting without any of the cool parts.. is Sting cool?)
3. Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson: they come back together after a long time apart, having tried out a variety of options but finally realizing that they are each others perfect fit and that it's what their children want. They reconcile and once again share the same roof and to celebrate, make a second sex tape that somehow gets leaked all over the internet.
Which pop culture or sports reunion do you think we should look to in order to predict the future for Mike and the Mad Dog?
