    I find this to be the best informative sports show out there. To give you some premise: Two men talk about a topic for 2-3 minutes then move on to the next one. This steady movement keeps them from bantering on about one thing for too long. They are both smart and witty with good enough senses of humor to keep one interested. I prefer this to other shows such as First Take and Sportsnation because those are all about debate to the point where it seems forced. Tony and Mike don't debate each other. They just exchange thoughts on topics. They are interestin to listen to and games like odds makers and whats the word bring a change of pace halfway in to the program. I highly suggest watching this show as it is both informative and entertaining. I've learned a lot from these two. Expand
