Hey everyone - I'm a big fan of Mike & Mike on ESPN Radio in the morning - did anyone listen this morning? Apparently they've got a big announcement tomorrow, anyone know what it is going to be??

They have an exclusive scoop: Jamaal Tinsley planted mics in the RCA Dome to boost the crowd noise. Carlisle didn't like it, so he benched him under the guise of sinusitis.

Sorry Andy, just read this.

Here's what I can tell you. Driving home tonight, John Siebel and Freddie Coleman were talking about it. Freddie said he was trying to get Golic to tell him what it was, and Mike said he could, but then he'd have to break his neck.

Then, Siebel admitted he knows what it is. He said people are comparing it to Olberman coming back, but it's much bigger. He said no, Charlie Steiner isn't coming back, he's too happy calling the Dodgers games in LA. He said nobody is coming back.

That's all I know, besides that it's supposedly at 7:05 tomorrow.

I viewed, but I never tune into the Mikes. Would be interested in what the annoucement turns out to be though.

Well to be honest with you - I'm afraid that one of the Mikes will be leaving. And as far as my speculation, I would say it has to be Greenie. He's got too much going for him, Sportscenter anchoring, this that and the other thing. I mean, doing a morning show, he must be getting to work at 4 30 am or 5 am to get on the air by 6 am? And then - to do the evening Sportscenter?? I mean that's kind of a lot of hours at the office. Now I'm not a Sportscenter apologist, but I do like Mike and Mike. I don't think Golic has a whole lot going for him - doing B rated NCAA games and NFL 2nite, I just don't see him giving up that morning chair as his anchor - unless he's being forced to go...

So those are my thoughts for the viewers out there. Kegboy I appreciate the shout out.

I hate Colin... He annoys the hell out of me. I miss Kornhole... back when I wasn't working like a dog and had time to listen to this kind of thing...

I used to listen to Mike and Mike, then they changed to Fox Sports down here. Now we have a local show, which is ok, but I like the national ones better. I think there have been a dozen morning shows at least since i have moved down here. Every time i come back after summer break they seem to have changed them. Thanks Clear Channel.

So with that announcement, I wonder if ESPN is going to get rid of Cold Pizza, or just move it back to a single airing at 10AM after Mike & Mike?

Interesting.

I wish Greenie would leave. He bothers me. I hate the whole metro-sexual thing and his stupid rants about coffee makers and how he wears make-up or whatever. He just seems like he doesn't belong in sports...almost fakeish.
