Dan Patrick Calls Out Colin Cowherd For Having "ESPN Muscles"

ESPN radio host and frenulum with eyes Colin Cowherd really likes to waste air time on his show by letting everyone know what a savvy sports radio veteran he is.

Dan Patrick Soldiers Through A Brutal Interview With Alshon Jeffery

Alshon Jeffery: fantastic football player, horrible interview.

Matt Harvey's Interview With Dan Patrick Got Real Awkward Real Fast

Mets phenom Matt Harvey was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show this morning, and he was not the ideal interview subject.

Bonnie Bernstein Defends Holly Rowe's Sharp Elbows

We all got a kick out of watching Holly Rowe bust out the sharp elbows to establish her turf after last week's Sugar Bowl. We were amused again to discover it wasn't the first time Rowe had thrown around some muscle in the name of postgame journalism. But there's a reason Rowe does this, and it's not simply because… » 1/12/12 3:15pm 1/12/12 3:15pm

15 Years Ago, I Wrote A Fan Letter To ESPN. Here's Who Wrote Back.

I don't remember now what was in my letter, which I'd addressed to the very nonspecific "SportsCenter anchors." I'm sure it was your standard fan mail—"I'm a big fan, I watch every morning, I want to be on ESPN one day." I don't think I asked for a reply, and I definitely didn't ask for signed headshots. » 12/28/11 12:20pm 12/28/11 12:20pm
