Dave Mustaine and Mike Wise: BFF

I guess all this happened during the end of the Wizards-Cavs series, so I kind of missed it, but it's too irresistible never to get its own Bog headline: Mike Wise and Dave Mustaine, careers now joined for all time by one first-round column.

Wise--famously bereft of a Wikipedia entry of his own--is now featured in Mustaine's Megadethtastic page, and Megadeth's Web site still offers fans Flyers-themed Megadeth Security iron-ons (pdf), and

After Mustaine and some other long-haired fellows began recording scoreboard announcements for the Flyers, Wise went on Washington Post Live and dropped this nugget: "Do I get royalties from Megadeth? I've resurrected their career." Megadeth, of course, has something like 20 million album sales under its belt. I believe that's one or two more sales than "Shaq Talks Back" reported, but don't quote me on that.

Anyhow, fun as the above clip was, I just saw this additional Mustaine clip from the Flyers' Web site. My enjoyment would be about 1,000 times better if Mustaine was yelling at "Mike Wise" instead of a generic "Washington Post," but it still makes me pretty happy.

Dude thanks for the Link to Mustaine's wiki page. Some of the best readiing I've seen in a while.

Mustaine's still a tool.
I'm just sayin', not hatin'.

Wise is a no talent ass clown whose opinion on a sport or team changes like the wind.

He has no real knowledge of the sports he writes about.

I agree with the post at 12:47!

The last two posts are tools who don't have the guts to use their real names. Wise rules.
