“Mike & Mike is about all I watch on ESPN any more, ... “
Mike & Mike makes a conscious effort to do 50s and 60s style broadcasts. That is, they don’t skewer people, and they don’t play gotcha with guests. They try to be positive, focus on the sport itself as much as possible. They avoid bad language, and will very occasionally get a little naughty, but nothing I wouldn’t let a child watch.
I congratulate them, and watch every morning while I get ready.
I like Mike & Mike and I like Cowherd. Though I get most of Cowherd’s show through his Thundering Herd podcast. At least with Cowherd for example, he didn’t go around making excuses for ESPN or Penn State or Paterno when the Jerry Sandusky story broke. Cowherd even choked up on the air after fielding a call from a sexual abuse victim. He didn’t know it was a victim beforehand, but it came out during the course of the phone call and he just let the guy just get it out of his system.
