Mike Tirico Raps About Drake During Game 7 (Video)

  Mike Tirico’s son asked him not to do this on TV. He did it anyway though. Mike decided to rap about Drake’s name when he was shown during the ABC telecast of Game 7 between the Raptors and the Nets. Mike definetly doesn’t have BARS and when you have to explain your joke and still no one is laughing, it’s a problem. Good job, good effort Mike. [watchnba20145]

WATCH: Mike Tirico blames penalty on inactive Richie Incognito

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct in the first quarter of Monday Night’s Dolphins-Buccaneers game in Tampa, but ESPN’s Mike Tirico just assumed the flag was for Richie Incognito because he’s apparently the team bully in Miami.

Dan Dakich is popular with the ladies

Mike Tirico and Dan Dakich are quickly becoming an excellent pairing in the broadcast booth and did a terrific job calling #14 Ohio State's victory on the road at #2 Indiana last night.  Dakich in particular shined breaking down the game and calling out players when need be, which is a rarity in college hoops.  But his highlight was when a young woman held up a "Dan Dakich...

Not Even Gus Johnson Could Have Beaten Mike Tirico's Call of the Jets Game Last Night (Video)

Last nights Monday night football game between the Titans and the Jets was all that I could have hoped for and more.  A fantasy football victory and 4 more interceptions from Mark Sanchez.  It's beyond my belief how this guy is still in the NFL.  Worst QB I've seen in years.  Give me Timothy Richard Tebow, NOW. It wasn't enough that they lost the game though, they...

Tirico enthusiastically calls Sanchez fumble

Monday Night Football doesn't have the advantage of flex scheduling, which has the potential to produce late season stinkers like the Jets/Titans game the nation witnessed tonight.  But thankfully, the 2012 New York Jets may be the greatest example of sporting schadenfreude we've ever seen.  Gang green bumbled and stumbled and finally fumbled away the game and their season...
