Greenberg thinks of next book, Golic not so much

Sat, Apr 10

As Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic travel the United States promoting their book "Mike & Mike's Rules for Sports and Life", Greenberg is thinking about his next book.

"If they want us to do a follow-up, that's cool. I'm also thinking of writing my first novel," Greenberg said. "And that would also be the first novel Golic would read."

"If I'm reading a novel, it wouldn't be the one written by you," Golic said. "And I'm not doing another one. This one exhausted me. The thought of writing another book puts me in the fetal position."

That banter is what makes the relationship between Greenberg and Golic so special.

Greenberg, the self-admitted "metrosexual", and Golic, the self-admitted "dumb jock", have been together for 10 years hosting of the nation's most popular radio shows. In 2004, the radio show began broadcasting on ESPNews and then moved to ESPN2 in 2006.

"We are exactly like we are on the show," Greenberg said. "I'm the metrosexual and he's the former player who is all meat and potatoes. We use it for humor. He's starting to lose weight. He needs to stop that!"

Sunday, the duo travels to Winnetka, Ill., for the next book stop.

What actor would play you if the book was turned into a movie?

Golic: "Actor Jeff Garlin from 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'."

Greenberg: "Brad Pitt for me. Actually, Jon Stewart."

Golic: "I think Pee-Wee Herman should play Greenberg."

The banter never stops.
