I study Floyd Mayweather, Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr and Sugar Ray Leonard.
Mike Jones, Ying Yang Twins, then a little later, Wiz Khalifa and Meek Mill, too. It was the repetitive stuff with Mike Jones when he would give out his number, and I also like his style. Back then, actually, I still think du-rags, grillz, and stuff like that are cool.

Stand up comedy is this thing you get to do, so you have to treat it with respect. You can’t just be like, ‘Alright, I got my hour down, people are coming to see me now.

Mike Myers as Austin Powers makes me laugh - that was g

My own ambition in the ring had always been skillful boxing, speed and defense – on the order of Mike Gibbons.
Gene Tunney
Mike Leigh taught me about making choices – as an actor, you choose between being honest and clever, and with Mike, it’s always about being honest. I learned how to behave on a film set from Jim Broadbent. He was a great example of someone with a fantastic career who kept his feet on the ground.

Art morphs with what’s going on in the world. We say ‘Ferguson‘; we don’t say ‘Mike Brown.’ Just like we say ‘Selma,’ not ‘Jimmie Lee Jackson.’ There is something startling about the people in a particular place, a city or a small town, rising up and taking to the streets.
I had left school at 16, gone to stage school – and, until I was 22, I hadn’t really played anyone but myself. Then in 1979, I made a film with Mike Leigh called ‘Grownups,’ which went out on the BBC, and overnight this new career opened up.
I’m doing a bit of theatre: I’m doing a Mike Bartlett play called ‘Contractions.’ I’m very, very happy and lucky to be going back to the stage.

When I was asked by Pacific Comics for an original crea

I’ve thought about what I could accomplish in football, but when you read about Mike Webster and Dave Duerson and Ray Easterling, you read all these stories, and to be the type of player I want to be in football, I think I’d have to take on some risks that, as a person, I don’t want to take on.

I remembered, like, when ‘Not When My Daughter’ came out, I’m serious, I think dating for Iranian men became a lot harder. Dude‘s name, Shahrokh – became Tony. Mehsud became Mike.
What I think about is about the opportunities that Mike Shanahan gave me as an inexperienced coach. I think about watching a Kyle Shanahan work.

Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and others who raced to the microphones at the slightest hint of Obama overstepping the lines were damn quiet as Trump wildly colored outside the lines of any rational version of executive power.

‘Mike & Molly’ exists in a world where we don’t just say a snarky line, make a crazy face, and walk out of the room. There’s actually some tender moments here, too.

My first movie was with Mike Nichols.

I’m the football manager of Newcastle, which is owned by Mike Ashley.
Comedy is not about appearance; it’s about rockin’ a mike. Are they laughing? That’s the only test.
As a physician, I’m somewhat an advocate of patients. How come, before Mike Webster, no NFL player was told or knew that there was an intrinsic risk of brain damage from playing football?
Bennet Omalu

Mike Judge usually receives underwhelming acclaim for his movies when they come out; it takes a while for people to catch up.
Personally, until Mike Trout came into the league I thought I would be in the conversation for best player in the game. Then he screwed that up for everybody – Babe Ruth and Ted Williams included. He has ruined it for everyone.
I support the homies, like Mike Jay and Hannibal Buress. And I listen to Comedy Central Radio in the car.
Since taking office, President Trump has repeatedly dem

Since taking office, President Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that bringing Americans home is a top priority for his administration.

My manager and fellow YouTuber, Mike Lamond, encouraged me to start a YouTube channel as a way to practice speaking, entertaining, and being more comfortable in front of a camera. In the beginning, I used an $80 dollar flip-camera and edited every episode myself.

Language kills, and inflamed rhetoric of the kind that spews almost daily from the lips of Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, and others running for public office in this country should be condemned.

Jon Tenney
As a kid, I think every kid grew up watching Jordan, that was every kid’s idol… you just wanted to be like Mike.
There’s so many good comedians in D.C. I started hanging out with those guys. Dave Chappelle was there. Actually, Dave was too young to be in the clubs, so when his mom couldn’t make it, he would ask me to pretend I was his aunt, so he could do open mike.
Bill Barr has gutted the Justice Department. Mike Pompeo has gutted the State Department. We are in serious danger here.

People say of every opponent, ‘When are you going to knock him out?’ But I’m not like Mike Tyson, who came flying out of his corner. I’m much more composed. A guy is supposed to be durable, but then I start finding my range, and, well, it comes together. Boom.

If I leave the mike in the stand, my hands absolutely move more. I’m not sure if it’s a conscious thing.
When I first became captain of the Indian cricket team in 2000, many well-wishers and journalist friends gifted me the classic Mike Brearley book, ‘The Art of Captaincy.’ I mean no disrespect to the book or Mr, Brearley, who I admire a great deal, but books or team meetings don’t make you good captains.
When I did my solo album, I put on a song that I’d planned for Toto that never made an album constructed from a great drum track with Jeff and a bass track with Mike and the guys loved it.
Steve Porcaro
I do jiu-jitsu my whole life, so why would I try to stand and bang with Mike Tyson? I’m going to learn boxing in six months because my opponent is good in boxing? That makes no sense.
The Almeida’s artistic director, Rupert Goold, brought me Mike Bartlett’s ‘King Charles III’ with the slightly apologetic warning that it was in blank verse, but, of course, that appealed to me.
I remember when Muhammad Ali got beaten the first time. I remember when Lennox Lewis got beaten the first time, Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson. All of those were legendary fighters, and they came back, and that’s what made them different – what they did after they got beat.
Mike Tyson notoriously looked for a way out against Evander Holyfield when it was clear Holyfield had his number. Suddenly, Tyson’s cowardice in gnawing off Holyfield’s ear overshadowed nearly everything he had accomplished as a fighter.
I look at stuff like the ‘The Whole 19 Yards‘ and it reminds me of my childhood watching shows with Mike Reid and kids climbing over obstacles.
I ought to have Mike’s Pirate School. The freshmen, all they get is the bandanna. When you’re a senior, you get the sword and skull and crossbones. For homework, we’ll work pirate maneuvers and stuff like that.
If I could be half of what Mike Sweeney was, I’ll be happy with it.
Mike Marshman is a quality choice to fill the role of Portland Police Chief.
A lot of people want Trump to be impeached. I do not. Because just when you think Trump is awful, you remember Mike Pence. Mike Pence is what happens when Anderson Cooper isn’t gay.
It has been a true honor to wear a Bloomberg badge, and this credential has been the passport to sit across from some of the greatest titans of industry, including Mike Bloomberg, the visionary behind this extraordinary company.
I don’t want my Olympic experience to be about Mike Pence. You know, I want it to be about my amazing skating and being America’s sweetheart.
I like watching Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. I also like Mike Weir because he is a lefty like me. I like watching golf a lot.
The post-presidency, as Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton h

The post-presidency, as Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton have proved, is a win-win. Money, Nobels, the ability to leverage your global celebrity for any cause or hobbyhorse you wish, plus freedom to grab the mike whenever the urge takes you without any terminal repercussions.
I did Jay Leno with Mike the Situation, and he just – he lives, like, ten minutes from me in Jersey. He’s like, ‘If you ever get a flat, call me. I’ll come fix your tire.’ That’s how we do. That’s neighborly, you know?
There are always guys that give you a glimpse of the future. Maybe Gene Upshaw. Ted Hendricks. Lawrence Taylor was a glimpse of the future. Kellen Winslow was a glimpse of the future. Mike Haynes.
I could beat my mike stand into the stage, but I was still in pain. Maybe fans liked it, but sometimes people forget you’re a person and they’re more into the entertainment value. It’s taken a long time to turn that around and give a strong show without it being a kamikaze show.
The first band I saw were Mike Sheridan and The Nightriders, in their brown mohair suits, in 1966.
Jeff Lynne
My solo music – I get up onstage, I improvise and it’s my improvisation. When I get up onstage with Fred Frith and Mike Patton, then we’re improvising together. Then it’s not my music; it’s our music.

With the many blessings I’ve received through football, my wife, Ashli, and I started the Mike Evans Family Foundation to be a blessing to others. We don’t do it for the recognition. It just makes us feel good to give back.
Most coaches would consider leading a team to an Olympic gold medal a capper for a pretty good year. The same goes for winning an NCAA national championship. Or a FIBA world championship. Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke Blue Devils and Team USA, led teams to each of these honorswithin about 24 months.
The thing about Drew Goddard and Mike Schur is that they are legit geniuses, and they love storytelling. They love creating worlds, love messing with the audience; they love doing things that we don’t expect. To get to be a part of that is too good to be true.
D’Arcy Carden
Some people who love boxing might love Mike Tyson, but people outside of the sport are generally repulsed by him and therefore, repulsed by the sport.
Dick Schaap
As Mike Tyson says, everybody has a plan until they get hit in the mouth. The one thing we know about American presidential politics is you’re going to get hit in the mouth.
I’m all about competition; still am to this day. That’s how you should be, but not with any malice. From Mike Will Made It to Boi-1da to Mike Zombie, I’m out to get ’em all and it’s that friendly competition that keeps us all on our toes.
Mike Leigh is my all-time favourite writer/director/creator.
I actually gave Mike Tyson his ‘Iron Mike’ nickname.

Mike Tyson has become larger than life.
I did an internship with Mike (Shanahan) and the Redskins last summer and I knew after a week and a half that it wasn’t for me. I think I knew that going in, but I wanted to make sure.
Terrell Davis
What I did when I identified Mike Webster’s thing, I showed it to other doctors. We all agreed that this was something new, but we had to give it a name. This was not dementia pugilistica. Maybe we could have called it dementia footballitica!
Bennet Omalu
Mike Brown wasn’t about race relations, nor Trayvon Martin or even Hurricane Katrina for that matter. It’s about trust.
If I’m not putting out music, I’mma be producing for everybody. I got an artist named Mike Slice. He’s nice, and he’s real good. I’m doing a bunch of production for all the artists in the industry because I’m as much as a producer as I am an artist.

The first time I got recognized in the Sates, it was by Mike Tyson. He sang ‘Cruel Summer’ at us as we were walking out of the hotel to go to the beach.
I was originally going to join ‘Mike & Mike’ in New York City, but then that move fell through, and there was a vacancy on ‘First Take,’ so now I am excited to be able to do both.
Mike Tyson would have been a good sparring partner for

Mike Tyson would have been a good sparring partner for me and Muhammad Ali because Tyson was a fast fighter and he could punch and throw good combinations.
Although there’s been a fighter before me called Mike Tyson, I’m my own Tyson. I’m Tyson Fury. I ain’t trying to be anybody else.
Mike Tomlin, man, is one of the realest coaches out there. He keeps everything real; he keeps it 100. He doesn’t lie to you. He doesn’t sugarcoat anything. And that’s what I like about him.
JuJu Smith-Schuster
Wouldn’t you love to see Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield go one more time? It’s not like just one of them has aged. They’ve both aged. They’re both icons.
Mike Tyson was one of the fighters who motivated me. How? We both used to train at the Golden Gloves boxing gym. I used to see his Rolls-Royce, his diamond Rolex on, and I said, ‘You know what? Those are the things that I want.’
There’s so much pressure on becoming the next Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson, and if you don’t achieve that in boxing, you’re nothing.
I have a running conversation with a couple of colleagues. Mike Schmidt’s one of them; some on my White House team are others; Alex Burns on the politics team is another. That just helps me not lose my place, right? We’re just constantly talking about what we’re hearing and where things are.
Maggie Haberman
The fact is, in Mike Huckabee’s case, he can say, ‘I was a preacher, I’m a Christian, and so I believe that life begins at conception, ends at natural death.’
‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko have, along with their team, painstakingly planned out the Avatarverse.
I often draw from people in my own experience to base a character on, going back to my days with Mike Leigh.
I’m very proud to be a member of the Congress. And I’m proud to serve with people like Mike Doyle.
I consider Billy Keeler, Mike Tiernan, Ed Delihanty and Larrie La Joie the toughest hitters I had to pitch to, but I did not dread them. Remember, Hughie Duffy was a member of our team, so I did not face him. In my opinion, Duffy was the greatest hitter.
Kid Nichols
‘Iron’ Mike Tyson is the last boxer who was truly embraced by the media. They followed him around. You didn’t know what he was going to do next: bite you, cut you, fight you. When you think about it, that defines him – it was an exciting adventure.
Yeah, I’ve done Jim Breuer’s radio show a couple times, and I heard from Larry the Cable Guy when I got ‘Mike & Molly,’ wishing me congratulations. I’m always the last one to the party, man. But that’s okay. I got there.
I was taught coming up in the Phillies organization to be seen and not heard by people like Pete Rose, my hero growing up, and players like Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton and Manny Trillo.
I come from where Mike Tyson came from. I come from right across the street from Jay-Z. I didn’t have a pond in my backyard. I saw violence.
The sport needs a personality, not a fighter. We’ve got plenty of great fighters in the sport, but no personalities. No one is standing for anything. The last personality we had was Mike Tyson. He stood for something. It wasn’t much, but he stood for something.
It’s an honor to be presented with an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of my mentor, Mike Mansfield, who worked to strengthen and improve America’s important relationships throughout Asia.
When it comes time to dance, they’re like a regiment; they do the same steps – except for the Mike Teavee dance, where the Oompas play in a rock band. I learned to play the guitar for that one.
Deep Roy
Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino called me a dirty hamster, but I cleaned that house up and down!
Mike Patton is my mentor, and he releases two to five records a year with many different bands, and he gets stuff done.
Imagine this guy hits Mike Hammer over the head with a wooden coathanger and knocks him out. You hit Mike Hammer over the head with a wooden coathanger, he’ll beat the crap out of you.
Mickey Spillane
Watching some heavyweights like Mike Tyson, he inspired me to work with my speed because he beat people with power, but most of the time, he beat people with speed.
Francis Ngannou
Mike DeWine has been a dismal failure as Ohio’s top cop.
There’s a difference between John Bolton and Mike Pompeo.
Mike Cernovich is not everything that’s wrong with society, but he is definitely the low hanging fruit of what’s wrong with society.
Mike Tyson is a good boxer, but he is not the best fighter. I am the best fighter.
When I came to the United States, I saw a lot of Mike Tyson. I would stay up and watch all of the Mike Tyson fights. A friend here said, ‘You got to do Jiu-Jitsu. That’s the thing.’ I said, ‘C’mon, Jiu-Jitsu would never beat Mike Tyson.’ So, he showed me the Royce Gracie tape. I was so impressed with the thing.
If I was going to make a broad generalisation, I’d say that I prefer the company of women. People know now that I live with Mike Figgis, but I prefer not to talk about it. On one level, privacy is important, but on another level I have no desire to deny certain things.
My father was in record promotion in Los Angeles. He worked for Mercury Records, Capitol Records, and RCA Records. My parents divorced when I was about 9. In 1978, my dad moved to Nashville and opened an independent record promotion company, Mike Borchetta Promotions.
And I coached against Mike when he was an assistant with the Bears and they won that football game.
Mike Elizondo had an incredible array of guitars in the

Mike Elizondo had an incredible array of guitars in the studio, but they were all right-handed.
Everyone knows Mike Portnoy’s reputation. He’s a great drummer, and he helped us out in a great time of need. He really helped us get back underneath our feet and continue this band.
My manager was Buddy Glee, who put me together with Mike Curb, and was basically the idea to bring some soul to the label and bring something different to the label besides the Hank Williams situation.
Solomon Burke
It’s always weird when you see a movie, and there’s no reason for someone to, like, jump on stage and be a singer, and then they just do that… But if it came organically, I would grab that mike and jump on stage for sure.
Mike Judge, who I’ve become friends with over the years never took himself seriously as an artist.
Bill Griffith
My brother Mike is the hardest working person I know.
When we went to America, Robin Williams came to the gig, and Mike Myers had lunch with us and wanted to write a film for us. We’re idiots – we turned it down. I think we were just sick of each other at that point. When you get famous, it takes some time to realise it isn’t going to be good.
My favorite sequels are basically all Mike Myers films – ‘Wayne‘s World 2,’ ‘Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,’ ‘Shrek 2.’ Anything he does, it’s best the second time around. He needs to do ‘So I Married an Axe Murderer 2.’
Not to make him blush, but any story illustrated by Mike Mignola does things that prose alone can’t accomplish. The illustrations create mood and atmosphere, drawing the reader more deeply into the story than words could do on their own.
Christopher Golden
I’m very influenced by Mike Leigh and the way that he always has these climactic confrontations, like in ‘Secrets and Lies’ and ‘High Hopes,’ in which the ensemble cast meets in one location.
Mike Pence is the kind of guy that brushes his teeth and then drinks orange juice and thinks, ‘Mmm.’
The Green Arrow stuff that I’ve responded to from the past is the Mike Grell stuff. I’ve liked a lot of other stuff, but I think for me, the direction and the mood and the tone that I really want is something much darker and more aggressive and really fast-paced action.
Mike Brown is a big guy; he’s very durable. He’s extremely strong and very well-rounded.
I am not a big fan of Mike Tyson. I almost idolized him for what he did in the ring – he was such a great fighter. But his behavior out of the ring… he needed to realize he was in the public eye, and there is a responsibility.
I think the WWE is a great place for professional athletes. Floyd Mayweather did it. Mike Tyson has done it. Even Donald Trump has appeared in the ring.
Who is Mike Judge? Let me think. The only way I could possibly answer that question would be in a nonverbal fashion. I think I could do an interpretive dance that would answer that question for you.
I remember seeing Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson, and the old films of Sugar Ray Robinson.
I began writing with Mike Pinder and eventually we went on to form a new band called The M&B, which later became The Moody Blues, what I would call a progressive blues band.
Mike Brown wanted to hire me to work with LeBron in player development.
For Mike Mills, I learned that having dance parties and crying with your cast does not make you a weak director, it makes you a strong director.
Just me onstage with a mike having an intimate relationship with the audience. I don’t get nervous for that. I just get excited.
Mike Campbell and Don Henley and I wrote ‘The Heart of the Matter,’ which was a huge hit for Don.
On June 27, 1988, a 21-year-old Mike Tyson made in excess of 21 million dollars for 91 seconds of work. It took him just over 14 seconds to pull in more money than Michael Jordan, in his prime, made for an entire season of work that year.
I actually got a part in ‘The Love Guru‘, that Mike Myers film. I heard it’s awful. I got a Razzie award for it, which I’m quite proud of, but I still haven‘t seen it. I have no plans to branch out.
Daniel Tosh
There is nothing incompatible about laughter and demons, nor about athletic achievement and depression. Mike Flanagan made me laugh, too. But mostly, he made me brave.
But I think the thing I’m proud of about the film is that there aren’t many films – either independent films or mainstream Hollywood films – that are like this; it’s of its own times, and it’s the film Mike Nichols wanted to make.
Every time I’m a good guy in a movie, which is the ‘Marine,’ people are like, ‘Wow, you can play endearing. You can play kind and nice and sweet but yet hardcore.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah. Just because The Miz is a jerk and an egotistical maniac doesn’t mean that there isn’t a softer side to Mike Mizanin.’
The media has been nice to me so far, but if I get compared to Channing one more time… I’m taking it as a compliment, but it is crazy how many times people have compared me to him. I don’t know if ‘Magic Mike’ is in my future, but we’ll see.
I really didn’t know how people were going to react to ‘Magic Mike’ because there hasn’t been a movie like it.
Adele was introduced to me by a guitarist named Mike Hartnett that plays for a band called Rehab. We was just riding around, and he was like, ‘Man have you heard this soul singer Adele?’ and I was like ‘Nah!’ and we just rode to the whole CD, and it got to ‘Hometown Glory,’ and I was like, ‘Man I have to sample that!’
The only time a friend has ever helped me in the industry was how I got my first job – that was through Mike Figgis.
Zuleikha Robinson
It's the subconcussive hits, the constant bam, bam, bam

It’s the subconcussive hits, the constant bam, bam, bam that linemen like Suh give and receive. Those are the hits scientists say cause the lasting damage to the brain, the kind of injuries that made guys like Mike Webster, Terry Long, and so many others go crazy. The subconcussive hits – every single play.
I have a lot of respect with Mike McCarthy and for what he’s done.
As far as Mike Dolce goes, I would never hire him again for anything.
In the beginning of ‘Jersey Shore,’ for sure, that was the real Mike. That’s the Mike that I know, that’s the Mike I love. And that’s the Mike I strive to be every day.
It was Test cricket as it should be played, when the irresistible force in Allan Donald met the immovable object in Mike Atherton at Trent Bridge in 1998. And I was happy to watch from the best seat in the house – at the other end.
Mike Trout. Jose Ramírez. Mookie Betts. All these guys walk, and they swing at strikes.
I’m ATT to the bone. I have my close circle of people, my clique – Jorge Masvidal, Mike Brown, Dan Lambert. I’m not friends with everybody. It’s a gym, but this is a one-man sport.
And what’s great is, you know, while ‘Mike and Molly’ are working on their health, that’s their flaw, the people that surround them are actually- that’s the mess. Those two have it together the most.
Mike Tyson is one of those guys that for most of his career and I’m sure, he decided he was ready to quit long before he got beat. Had he just quit when he wanted to, he probably would’ve never gotten beat. He’s just a beast. I’m a huge Mike Tyson fan. You’re talking about a vicious son of a gun.
I dedicate some of my power to Mike Tyson. I watched a lot of film on Mike Tyson. Then we started taking notes on Muhammad Ali. We took notes on Sugar Ray Leonard. What was that fighter known for? Why was he so difficult to beat in his time, in his era and, you know, why was he at the top?
When I was a kid, I wanted to fight Joe Louis. But I think if I had seen Mike Tyson at that time, I would have said, ‘Nah, I don’t want to fight him.’ He’s deadly. He could have been one of the great heavyweight champions. But he goofed.
When I was in the military, my dad ran in the Mike Harris 1995 Common Sense Revolution election, and that’s where I really made the decision that one day I would love to run for office.
Mike Tyson and I came up together in the streets, and being around people like him, I learned what goes on behind the scenes.
Eric B.
I think Mike Nichols is brilliant, but I think Jerry Robbins was a genius.
I don’t watch a lot of the games on Sunday. But I always kept an eye on the 49ers. I think Mike Singletary has made a big difference. He’s done a tremendous job.
I’m into the idea of responsibility and edification and these things have found me and I have found them. I wanted to be in the movie and I made it known to Mike.
Rob Morrow
‘Anderson’ is what I’ve been called since I was a kid; my mom is about the only person who calls me ‘Mike.’
I have a really close relationship with Mike Bloomberg.
I really believed that Mike Huckabee had a vision for our country, and the more I was around him the more I was impressed by this man.
I was doing comedy in laundry mats in 1992, literally where I would bring a little gorilla amp and a lapel mike and just start performing.
Mike Amiri is like my brother.
I was on ‘The Mike Douglas Show’ twice. I was on the cover of practically every magazine in the United States. I never said no to anything. I told everything to everybody. I gave everything away, and when you give it all away, you have nothing left.
One of my best friends, Mike, had a kid. Just seeing him go through it all was inspiring. It would be so nice to care about someone more than yourself. And Mike is a total delinquent, so if he can do it, I figure I can, too.
I remember that, often, Mike Phelan would just nip down to the touchline for a message to one or two players. It was usually just a tactical thing. But when Sir Alex comes to the touchline, all the players know that it’s serious stuff.
Klaus from the Teddybears, Bloodshy and Avant and Mike Snow, they’ve done lots of Britney Spears production. They went backwards from production to being in a band, which might be cool. I might do that, too, one day.
Looking back, I’m so proud to have gone to five Olympics – I believe only three other Americans have achieved that. My true gold medal, though, is my daughter, Karsen, who is 18 months old. And I have a wonderful husband, Mike.
I know I make a lot of jokes about Mike Jones, but I don’t even have no hatred for him.
My little brother and I, we’re just in our generation. We’re doing the best job we can do. There were champions like Mike Tyson who fought everybody, and not everybody was just as good.
Rock ‘n’ roll… but I also like sporting events a lot. I love Mike Piazza.
Angie Everhart
Being a cop is often seeing the worst of the human condition and behavior. With all of that said, there is no reason that Mike Brown and also Eric Garner are dead today – except bad policing, excessive force, and the hunt-and-capture-prey mentality many thrill-seeking cops have adapted.
Me and Mike Myers had great chemistry between us.
Mike Bibby was a huge help for me on the court, giving

Mike Bibby was a huge help for me on the court, giving me advice pick-and-roll wise, where to get my shots, things to do.
I started doing improv in college, and I met Mike Birbiglia and John Mulaney and a bunch of other very funny, talented people who I’m still friends with and work with.
Growing up I used to watch documentaries on people like Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson. I’ve grown up fascinated with legends and legacies.
I preferred not to be laden down with a big instrument. If you’re behind a guitar, you get used to being behind a guitar, and you don’t really perform because you can’t. I wanted to be able to just hold on to the mike and sing.
My guitarist husband, Mike, and writer me are the old-fashioned kind of bohemians. Not ‘fro-haired hipsters gyrating in iPod ads, but the sort who, starting January 1 of every year, literally don’t know where their next dime is coming from.
Dead at 50. Mike Webster! Nine-time Pro Bowler. Hall of Famer. ‘Iron Mike,’ legendary Steelers center for fifteen seasons.
If you tried to sell Mike Birbiglia as a concept, no one would buy it.
As long as we, again, kind of keep earning the sequels with material and I’m confident Mike can, I’m in. You know I always want to do those. But I also want to keep going in some of the direction as Meet the Parents has.
I personally don’t have anything to say to Mike Pence. I’m very lucky because legislation that he’s pushed hasn’t affected my life at all. I spoke out because there are people out there whose lives have been affected by change that he’s tried to make.
I’ve been a huge fan of Mike Judge for a long time.
When I see players like Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Robinson Cano, and Miguel Cabrera, I see they have a good season, but they also jump up the next year and do it over and over again. I want to be one of those players that do it every year.
