I'm a lifelong Blazer fan now living in Tucson. I've listened to all regular season games for the last three years! So I've heard most of the "color" commentators from around the league. Mike and Mike are a nice combination. Compared to other "dry" "humorless" commentators, they are fun to listen to. At least Mike has clear personality qualities that make him quirky. In a land of "Keep Portland Weird" I'm surprised you are turned off by the very traits you "cherish" in Ptown!
