We like countdowns. Especially the ones where you are counting down dates. It gives us something to look forward to. It helps us get through a day when you are watching a large man hold pretend auditions, speak to Jim Nantz about nothing that would ever interest the audience and 25 sets of Southside Johnny. Countdowns let us know that we are getting closer and closer to something exciting.
So here are some things we are counting down:
Yankees Death Watch: Mike has refused to see dead people wearing pinstripes. But he has declared that the Yanks need to win 5 of 6 or he is declaring them dead. The countdown begins tonight vs Baltimore.
COUNTDOWN: waiting on tonights results
Mike'd Up on the Radio: I once interviewed for a job on a sports tv show and was told that this show was going to revolutionize television, that it was going to be like the early days of Saturday Night Live. The show in question aired and I believe did the opposite of revolutionize tv due to the fact that it got a zero rating. That show was called the McEnroe Show. We are counting down to Mike'd Up on the Radio and we wonder if it will remind us at all of that revolutionary talk show hosted by a argumentative tennis player.
COUNTDOWN AT: 11 days
The Mad Dog Sports Show: (aka the Tussle at 2pm when Mike and Chris face off as solo artists): The question here is will you pay for Timmy, Tony, fanny, terrible job, Lincecum, and the whole bit? After this week of Francesca, I tell ya I would much rather be listening to Chris. I actually think that Russo is going to be better on the national scene than people think. Remember, he's not a New York guy and he has always been the one with national interests. I have begun to no longer think of it as paying to listen to Chris, but rather investing in not listening to Mike.
COUNTDOWN AT: 24 Days
Which day are you counting down to?
