So you’re saying there’s a chance?
Mike Golic appeared on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Monday. As is often the case when Golic is interviewed, the idea of a “Mike & Mike” reunion was brought up.
What gave this occurrence some extra weight was that that the question was asked by someone who gets similarly queried about his own ex-ESPN partner, as people constantly wonder if Dan Patrick will ever collaborate with Keith Olbermann again, as they did in the halcyon days of 1990s “SportsCenter.”
“The stand-pat answer is basically it’s not going to happen,” Golic said. “But I guess the best answer would be this is a crazy business where paths cross and re-cross all the time, so you can never say never.”
Golic’s brain appeared to be equivocating in real-time, because he reversed course one more time.
“That said, you can probably finish it like Mike Tomlin and say it’s never gonna happen,” Golic said.
Golic is the one who was more scorned in the breakup. Mike Greenberg left their dynastic radio run in late 2017 to launch “Get Up” on ESPN television in 2018. Golic was then paired with Trey Wingo, and both have since left the company.
Last year, when the ESPN Radio lineup was in flux, Golic’s wife, Christine, said her husband pitched a “Mike & Mike” reunion, but that the idea was shot down.
Perhaps one day Golic and Greenberg could reunite for a big charity gala, like Mike and the Mad Dog did for a fun evening in 2016 at Radio City Music Hall, but it doesn’t seem particularly likely “Mike & Mike” will ever be a regular program again.
