Charlie Moore vs. Mike Golic
Recently, I had the good fortune to film an episode of Beat Charlie Moore with Mike Golic from ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning. We spent the day on Tyler Lake in Goshen, CT, and the challenge was to see who could catch the most fish. As you all know, Beat Charlie Moore is more than just a fishing show. I always incorporate a twist, or a side challenge for the guest, just to make life a little more interesting. When guests come on the show to fish, they enter my world. The side challenge usually involves me entering their world in some way, shape or form.
Growing up, two of my favorite toys were the Evel Knievel Dare Devil Stunt Set and the Super Jock Super Toe Football Game. I thought it would be fun to challenge Mike to a game of Super Jock Super Toe. Many of you know that Mike Golic played college football at the University of Notre Dame and spent nine years playing defensive tackle in the NFL. I knew he would appreciate this challenge as much as I would.
We had a great day on the water and off. We caught some fish, played some football, well sort of, and just had fun being outdoors. Mike Golic is a really genuine guy and I look forward to having him on the show again. Look for this episode to air on ESPN2 this Saturday 5/9/09 at 7:30am EST and again on 6/20/09 at 7:30am EST.
