Mike on A-Game today(well...B+)

I'm not telling you anything new, but early December is really when Mike(even sans Russo) shines. That's because the NFL playoff scenarios are hotter than a nun's crotch on Easter Sunday. And this year, Mike has two playoff teams in town. And today, both are coming off a loss. There really is no better day than a Monday when callers phone in to gripe about play-calling, coordinators, officiating, etc. And Mike is the great ringleader. He'll look ahead to upcoming schedules, discuss permutations, calm anxiety, stoke fear, anything to keep listener's attention and at that, he excels. So for all the bashing you take on this site, big man(and we know you're reading), nice job.

To explain the B+...Well after setting the stage in the first segment about the two NY football teams, unprepared Mike finds out the results of the MLB Veteran's HOF commmittee. Joe Gordon, in. Everyone else, out. He doesn't have a lot to say on it except that he's surprised at the large margin from Gordon to the next guy. But as much as a baseball guy he is and this town is, did it really warrant a mention in the second segment? Couldn't this have waited til 3 or 4? It didn't matter. The lines were already full of people wanting to discuss pigskin.

Sorry to get off-topic here, but what would it take to give me the power to create my own posts on this blog? I mean let's be honest, you guys are hard working guys who don't have the time to put into this blog. I am some student with plenty of time on his hands. I believe I deserve the privilege to contribute to this blog. And plus I could use the writing practice.

Think about it...

Dawg's show just said there are rumors about a trade between the Yanks and Dodgers involving Robinson Cano. Yet, somehow on every update Heyman has nothing new to report.

First time commentor, long time reader. Mike's been sharp as a tack today minus that June Jones slipup. Best show in awhile.

thanks for checking in cburns. I agree Mike is having a good show. Nice spot with Leon Washington as well.

Rock said...

Good show and Mike do not go together. Sorry.

I didn't hear the show, but it's refreshing to see some positive comments on this site.

I suspect we're all M&MD fans, and want both shows to be great.

So it's good to see this isn't just a dumping ground for people to rip Francesa and Russo.

I heard M from Montclair on again today. He really thinks he's the dang co-host and he kept trying to take MF to task for his Dallas proclamation a few weeks ago. Dude, get over it. This man opines on sports for a living. Sometimes he's wrong. Move on man. I bet M from M predicts, daily, that he won't be an insufferable idiot. Daily, he predicts incorrectly. I thought the spot with L. Washington was very good.
