I didn't get to hear all of Mike and Dog's interviews with Torre. From what I can glean, they were both unspectacular. Would you guys give them both a "C" grade? If not, who outperformed the other and why?
I saw a little of Mike on Yes the other day. What is the deal with the constant gesturing? Is he telling someone where to drop his wings and mozz stix? Who is beckoning? Why can't he wait for the break? What's going on here?
I heard him the other day buddying up to his crew. Ack and Eddie Erickson and someone else. Taking himself down a few notches. Love it when Mike becomes one of the people. Refreshing and truly down to earth. That's Mike F. in a nutshell. Seriously, do you think he acknowledges these people outside of the context of his show? I can see something like this:
Minko: Mike, did you see LeBron last night?
Mike: Who'd they play?
Minko: The Knicks. At MSG.
Mike: No one watches the NBA Mink. I tried to watch them earlier this year but I couldn't find the game on TV.
Minko: Well, LeBron had some night. Triple double with over 50 points! That's some night, huh?
Mike: I don't care about the numbahs. The numbah mean nothin' to me. Did he play with heart? Did he dive on the floor? Did he set and screens that didn't show up in the box score.
Minko: He had 11 assists and 10 rebounds Mike. It was a game for the ages.
Mike: Hand me that Daily Form. I'll be in the my office. Do me a favor, pull up Jetuh's sac bunts, per year, for his career for me. That guy is all heart.
Mike is looking forward to Tenn v Florida this year. Kiffin v Meyer. Bloodbath, he says. No word on whether Meyer will bust out the U-T/Humanitarian line.
Caller got through complaining about the morning show. Mike actually, sorta, defended them. He also kinda sorta said they were not as good as the Imus show and no one should expect them to be.
