As odd as it sounds for a kid on the West Coast, I love Mike and Mike. I have no shame or qualms about it. Most of my friends have no clue about them since they come on at 3am PT, but that’s like prime-time for me (yes, I live a strange life). So anyway, I saw this little nugget while skimming through the radio news site All Access. Much like when Golic had his son come on and announce his intention to attend Notre Dame on the show (where the two almost committed a violation it seemed), Jr. will sign his letter of intent on the show Wednesday:
The son of ESPN RADIO “MIKE AND MIKE IN THE MORNING” co-host MIKE GOLIC will commit to play football for NOTRE DAME, his father’s alma mater, on WEDNESDAY’s edition of his father’s show.
GOLIC SR., a defensive tackle, was a 10th round pick in the 1985 NFL draft and played for the HOUSTON OILERS, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES, and MIAMI DOLPHINS. MIKE GOLIC JR. is a center from WEST HARTFORD NORTHWEST CATHOLIC high school and a member of the EAST squad in JANUARY’s U.S. ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL.
Whoever authored that press release needs to kick back on the caps lock key just a bit. I guess national signing day is like a big deal and all since it receives television coverage (which it shouldn’t — none of these guys have done anything at a level that matters), but I have to say that’s a pretty cool stunt. Hope the youngster’s an early riser so I can catch the moment before bed.
