#150 Mike Morris
The Superstar talks about how Meat Sauce got his name and also various sports things that are probably entertaining.
Morris was a four-year starter at Northeast Missouri State, and entered the National Football League as an undrafted free agent. He played brief stints for the Arizona Cardinals, the Kansas City Chiefs, the New England Patriots, the Seattle Seahawks, and the Cleveland Browns before settling in as the long snapper for the Vikings, where he played consistently throughout the 1990s. During the 1998 playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons for the Minnesota Vikings, he was blamed by Dennis Green for the snap being too high leading to Gary Anderson’s only missed field goal of the year. Following the end of his career, Morris took over the morning drive time slot on sports radio station KFAN after the failure of Dan Cole’s show necessitated a replacement. Morris broadcasted using the moniker ‘The Superstar’ and his show was known as The Power Trip Morning Show. Morris was also the co-host of Vikings Fanline with Cory “Sludge” Cove. Another one of his nicknames that poked fun at his lack of intelligence was Mike “Densa” Morris. Morris always signs Bon Scott when asked for an autograph. On KFAN Morris also had an arch nemesis that went by the name of Hawkey Doody, a mischievous puppet that had it out for the “Superstar.”
