ESPN is adding a second team to their Monday Night Football squad. Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic of the Mike and Mike in the Morning radio show will headline. They will be joined by Mike Ditka in the booth and Bonnie Bernstein on the sidelines.
The team will take the field for the late game of a double header on Sept. 10 when the Arizona Cardinals face the San Francisco 49ers.
Mike and Mike have worked their way up from the radio show they have been broadcasting for seven years now. They pull off airing the show on TV each morning on ESPN2. That says something of the guys in itself. If your not Howard Stern it can be tough to get people to watch you do a radio show.
They have been broadcasting Arena Football League games this season to good reviews and will be doing the Arena Bowl in July.
I like the addition of Mike Ditka. Not that he comes across as the brightest football mind but because he is going to say something stupid, maybe rude, and not care. I enjoy listening to Ditka more than I would Ron Jaworski.
As far as Bonnie…well, just look. She is easy on the eyes. It’s mandatory to have a woman on the sidelines these days so she may as well look good, right? I would much rather look at Bonnie than Suzy Kolber.
