I never thought listeners or programmers would put up with the likes of the Hard Line's 2-minute warning, but, 13 years later, I am wrong. The show is entertaining, but I wish it would focus more on sports, and not dwell so much on death trifectas, E-News, You-Know collections, and What's on Mike's Mind. I'd like to see the return of Microphone Johnson. If I want wall-to-wall sports for the whole show, I turn to Norm, and, for schtick that is more my speed, I go to the musers. As the glorified gym teacher would say, the Hard Line is what it is.
