Rush Limbaugh's Ex Wife Really Likes Mike And Mike

Saturday, July 19, 2008


I mentioned at the end of June that you had the opportunity to get Mike and Mike to appear at your house with a sizable donation to the V Foundation. Well that donation has bee submitter to the tune of $57,100 and by none other than the ex-wife of ex-ESPN analyst Rush Limbaugh.

ESPN Radio's popular morning show Mike & Mike In The Morning scored big Wednesday when it ran an on-the-air auction to raise money for cancer research.

The big-ticket item: For a price, former Dolphins lineman Mike Golic and his obnoxious co-anchor, Mike Greenberg, would broadcast one morning this fall from someone's house.

The winning bid was $57,100. Sold, an ESPN spokesman told The Palm Beach Post, to one Marta Maranda from the Jupiter area.

According to state and county records, there's only one. And she happens to be conservative radio talker Limbaugh's former missus. She didn't return repeated calls, and no one appeared to be home Thursday.

It's unclear whether the retired tough guy Golic and his skinny buddy realize that in October they could be broadcasting from an $11.5 million mansion in Jupiter Island - smack dab in the middle of Tiger Woods' neighborhood.
That's just about the most random thing I've ever heard. The funny part of the whole thing is that using a house for commercial purposes, including radio broadcasts, are actually banned on the island. The island's code enforcer is already on the look too. Said Jeff Newell, "I guarantee you we'll be looking for them."

Dunh Dunh Dunh!

I wonder how whoever wrote that piece decided what team to put for Golic. He played for my Eagles too.

Palm Beach Post, lammy, hence the S. FLA reference. If some bozo in Green Bay did a story on last week's Canseco fight, it would have involved "former Packer" Vai Sikahema.

Wait, so Mike and Mike would be breaking the law by going there? Might they decide to do the show from the No. 2 bid's place?

Even if I had that kind of money, I wouldn't pay $5 for them to broadcast from my home. Maybe that's just me.

That's crappy that the code enforcement officials are going to be jacka--es about it. Sure it's for commercial purposes, but it's not as if ESPN decided to broadcast Mike & Mike from that house just because they wanted to. It's because of a sizeable charitable contribution that's going toward a good cause. Seems to me that common sense should prevail, and someone should realize that this is ultimately for the V Foundation, not for "commercial purposes."

Maybe they're trying to get rid of the neighbors?

I wonder if technically its a "broadcast" from there. The actual transmitter wouldn't be on site in Jupiter.

Anyone with any guesses?

I wonder what Donovan McNabb thinks? Of course, seeing as how she's an ex, they probably share a dislike for Rush.

Can you imagine the gigantic bowl-clogging turds that Golic will leave in Marta's shithouse?Have to chop those babies up with a spatula;they'll look like the Titanic right before it sank.Still,they won't be the biggest pieces of shit Marta has ever seen...that would be Rush,the human shitstain.

This code enforcer sounds like the kind of person who would fine a kid
for setting up a lemonade stand.

Only if it's a 'plausibly' live-blog of Erin Andrews and the dress she had on during the Red Carpet pre-show.
