Let the San Francisco Giants Stop and Smell the Roses, Says Mike Greenberg (VIDEO)

Mike Greenberg on the World Series and free agents on Mike and Mike in the MorningIt took the San Francisco Giants 56 years to win a World Series, their first since moving from New York. It took less than a day for the press release to go out stating which of those Giants were free agents and might not even be with the team by the time they get their championship rings, a fact lamented by Mike Greenberg on 'Mike and Mike in the Morning' (Weekdays, 6AM on ESPN2).

"We do not smell the roses in our society, you wonder why everyone is so miserable," says Greenberg. "We strive, we strive, we strive, and when we finally accomplish something, we never stop to enjoy it."

Co-host Mike Golic agreed, saying that he would like a day or two before being reminded of "the fact that while they're celebrating, some of those Giants are not Giants anymore."

The two Mikes probably won't get much sympathy from the player's agents on that one.

It's time for a physical challenge! Recently, Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth failed to pass his physical conditioning test. If Haynesworth doesn't manage to eventually pass this test, then his more than $100 million contract could be voided.

But how hard is the test in question? Could a "fat" former football player who has been retired for 16 years manage to do it? On 'Mike and Mike in the Morning,' (weekdays, 6AM on ESPN2), Golic and Greenie would debate the issue. That debate would be settled later in the afternoon. Video inside.

Modern-day Felix Ungers: Seven TV neat-freaks - VIDEOS

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 16th 2008 3:02PM
Tony RandallDo you think when Neil Simon created the character of Felix Unger in The Odd Couple he knew that he was spawning a generation or two (maybe more) of Felix Unger wannabes? Today, over 40 years since Felix became part of our movie/TV collective conscience, there are lots of people and characters that bring to mind Tony Randall's alter ego.

It's Tony's Felix that I think is etched in our minds. He made Felix all he could be, and week in and week out -- opposite Jack Klugman's Oscar Madison -- he typified the ultimate neat freak, persnickety, hypochondriacally, impossible-to-live-with, supercilious know-it-all that made us cackle with laughter.

So, as I was watching TV -- an occupational requirement -- recently, it occurred to me that there are quite a few Felix Ungers on screen right now. Most are fictional, like Two and a Half Men's Alan Harper and, most obviously, Adrian Monk. But there are a couple of Felixes in real life on TV, too, like MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and ESPN's Mike Greenberg.

By my count, there are seven "Felix Ungers" currently on TV.

You're watching Duel on ABC - Part 2

Duel
Back in December, I wrote about my reactions after watching the premiere of ABC's new game show, Duel. Back then, I was entertained by the show but had concerns about the host. When I heard the show was getting a second season, I hoped that ABC read my column and your comments so that Mike Greenberg would stop holding that pen and would say something different than "Screen up!" and "You're watching Duel on ABC!", that the suspense music and pause would be toned down, and that we would actually get more than one question answered before we go to a commercial break!

Because I liked the difficulty of the questions, the one-on-one face offs, the sudden death, the picking of your opponent, etc., and because the ads for this new crop of episodes promised me changes, I decided to give season 2 of Duel a chance. Did it meet my expectations this time around?

Duel
December 17 marked the debut of ABC's latest game show: Duel. This week-long competition is described by the network as "a high-stakes tournament-style game show" at the end of which the winner could win over $1.5 million dollars.

I didn't really know what to expect from the game but, thanks to most of my series being in reruns and to ABC's online and on-screen marketing campaign, I decided I needed to give the show a try.
