It is important to respect the burden of a daily predawn wake-up time, and so for Mike and Mike, the best offense is a good defense. That means not succumbing to the temptation of a thrilling West Coast game, or even 'Monday Night Football,' for that matter. To the contrary, these two are putting head to pillow while the sun is still out and even toddlers are just being tucked in, at a time not long after dinner. "I have zero trouble falling asleep," Greenberg boasts. "When you've woken up at 4 o'clock in the morning, you'd be surprised how easy it is to fall asleep anytime you want." That capacity is a double-edged sword, of course, and both Mikes agree that their issue isn't struggling to get to bed early, but staying awake. "The bigger problem is not falling asleep at times when you don't want to," Greenberg says. Golic, ever the smart-ass, agrees: "Without a doubt – I could fall asleep anytime, anywhere," he says. "In fact, I was asleep through five minutes of this interview."
