June 21, 2007 at 1:36 PM (PT)
ESPN RADIO's MIKE GREENBERG survived his experience milking a cow in the studio THURSDAY morning and ended up being honored by the declaration of "MIKE GREENBERG DAY" in VERMONT. GREENBERG's milking experience came about to pay off a lost bet, and ESPN commentator BUSTER OLNEY, a VERMONT native, coached GREENBERG on the finer points of milking.
"This is the first time we’ve ever had something in the studio heavier than GOLIC," said GREENBERG, referring to his on-air partner, former PHILADELPHIA EAGLES, HOUSTON OILERS, and MIAMI DOLPHINS defensive tackle MIKE GOLIC, to whom GREENBERG lost the bet on the NCAA basketball tournament. After the milking of the 1,875 pound "SOX," VERMONT Depty Agriculture Secretary ANSON TEBBETS called in to read a proclamation from Gov. JAMES H. DOUGLAS declaring THURSDAY "MIKE GREENBERG DAY" in the state.
