'Mike And Mike Pentathlon' Underway
June 9, 2008 at 12:38 PM (PT)
ESPN RADIO's "MIKE AND MIKE PENTATHLON" is underway, with MIKE GOLIC besting co-host MIKE GREENBERG MONDAY in a game of H*O*R*S*E, the basketball shooting challenge.
The "pentathlon" had its genesis in GREENBERG, after running a 5K race, telling GOLIC "I could beat you in a 5K." GOLIC agreed but wondered about other sports, at which point producers LIAM CHAPMAN and CURT "JOAQUIN" KAPLAN came up with five events for the mismatched hosts to try.
GOLIC was characteristically humble after his H*O*R*S*E to H*O win, saying, "I was not only the better athlete, which goes without saying, but I also had a better strategy going into the contest. Then it was just a matter of time before GREENY melted before my greatness."
The MIKES will face off in a ping-pong match on JUNE 23rd.
