Featured player: Mike Golic
1990 Score #519 - I was going to throw this card away, because it is a new [as in 19 years old] card and it is in 'beater' shape. On the other hand, Golic has become this star in the media as a former NFL defensive tackle turned commentator on Mike and Mike in the Morning. I've sort of warmed up to the show broadcast on ESPN 2, because it is on, when I'm up at night and it is nice to find a live-broadcast show - instead of endless stream of informercials for "getting bigger."

I really don't pay much attention to the things going on in the show, other than what he and co-host Mike Greenberg have to say as far as an 'immediate reaction' to maybe the latest sports news. As a baseball fan they have Peter Gammons, Tim Kurkjian and Buster Olney on different days. As a whole, Golic has some interesting things to say all-around [not just about football and/or the NFL] and comes more across as a every day guy talking about sports, rather than some 'holier than thou,' ex-jock.

Not to make this like a Wikipedia entry, but he also admitted to steroids and was subject to a roast gone wrong.
