Mike & Mike in the Morning
is a four hour TV show, simulcast on ESPN Radio and ESPN2.
SportsCenter anchor Mike Greenberg's Odd Couple relationship with former NFL player Mike Golic is the main focus on the show, and that illustrates their different views on sports. Mike Greenberg is portrayed as a typical nerd, who was not involved in athletic activites, and was constantly picked on by bullies. On the other side of the spectrum, Mike Golic is shown as the tough man, who isn't afraid to speak his mind, and isn't very intellectual.
On most of the shows, the two argue over trivial things. One notable argument lasted for days, when Golic didn't clean out Greenberg's blender after using it (Greenberg is also portrayed as a neat freak.)
Former professional athletes such as Mike Ditka and Mark Schlereth provide insight on the issues discussed.
