    "So it will be a combination between Dave's World and Listen Up, except it's about a radio guy who is about 10,000 times less popular than Dave Barry or Tony Kornheiser."

    Thanks Mizzou! It was "Listen Up!" ESPN's first attempt of giving their radio/TV stars a show.

    This can't be any worse than the other night when I accidentally clicked on NFL Live and heard Golic's commentary on Osama.

    Shouldn't George Wendt be playing Golic?

    We're all just assuming it will be called "One Oaf and a Half Man," right?

    So ... there is no reason for me to start listening to Turd and Turd in the Morning?
    Then I will continue a policy I began back in the Bush Administration.

    Greenberg's book may have been the worst sports-themed book I've picked up in ten years.

    Just full of schtick and he is a hard guy to really get any sympathy for. Growing up with a silver spoon. Northwestern then at ESPN in his mid-20's. Greeny was born on third base and it comes across in every radio show he does.

    At least, Cowherd busted his hump for years in local TV and, just when he saw local TV sports was dying, re-invented himself in radio while he was in Portland and made a successful jump to Bristol. I respect that 10x more than anything Greenberg puts out.

    Two hacks I don't watch/listen to. And two TV shows I will have zippo interest in.

    I seriously don't understand how Mike and Mike is still on, I've never met one person who enjoys they show, and the few times I've accidentally turned them on I could only stomach it maybe 10 minutes. It's like listening to my grandparents bicker at each other!! The only difference was I actually liked my grandparents.

    I'm not sure who is a bigger whiner either, how the hell did Golic ever make it to the NFL? It's like listening to a 3-year-old having a temper tantrum every morning!
