Dan Patrick returned to ESPN’s SportsCenter set tonight for the first time since leaving the Worldwide Leader in 2007. But lest you think his appearance to commemorate Scott Van Pelt’s first episode of the new solo show would bring tidings of a more lengthy homecoming for one half of the “Big Show”, Patrick let…
Charles Barkley was on Dan Patrick’s radio show, talking about his experiences borrowing money from agents when he was a player at Auburn, when the conversation quickly veered into territory that I would describe as “far too real.”
Recently, it was revealed that this year’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award—an award concocted by ESPN and given out every year at the ESPY Awards—will be given to Caitlyn Jenner. No one should really be upset by this; nodding to the ideal of equality is a fine use of ESPYs airtime.
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. Yesterday, he went on one of his rants about what it takes to make it in "this business," and while doing so talked some shit about Dan Patrick, whom he…
Last year Red Hook teamed up with television and radio personality Dan Patrick to produce Audible Ale, which they proudly trumpet as "the ultimate craft beer for watching sports." What confers this ultamism? The marketing material suggests it's derived primarily from Audible's "crushable" status, which in the…
College football TV analyst Rick Neuheisel was on The Dan Patrick Show today, and he closed out his appearance with a special rendition of "Stairway to Heaven," called "Stairway to Playoffs." Neuheisel doesn't even need that TV job with his guitar skills.
Sports Jeopardy! finally has a premiere date: The Dan Patrick-hosted spinoff will begin airing on Sept. 24, and taping officially began this week.
Alshon Jeffery: fantastic football player, horrible interview. But Dan Patrick's a pro, and he powered through four painful minutes with the Bears receiver on his show this morning, despite Jeffery's total lack of interest in answering questions beyond platitudes and one-word responses.
During a live look-in during this morning's Dan Patrick Show, guest Peter King dropped an F-bomb. We are, frankly, shocked. We had no idea Peter even knew that sort of language.
Mets phenom Matt Harvey was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show this morning, and he was not the ideal interview subject. Patrick wanted to talk about Harvey's elbow injury and the looming possibility of Tommy John surgery—you know, baseball stuff—but all Harvey wanted to do was be a pitchman for some dumb phone thing…
While reporting his cover feature for Sports Illustrated on Manti Te'o, Pete Thamel found what he called some "small red flags" in the story of Lennay Kekua, the dead girlfriend who never existed. So what did he do?
In October, Doug Gottlieb, a radio host and basketball analyst who'd decamped for CBS the previous month after nine years with ESPN, went on The Dan Patrick Show and dropped something of a truth bomb about his time in Bristol:
Doug Gottlieb, the former ESPN Radio host now bound for CBS, did an exit interview on The Dan Patrick Show today and confirmed what we all suspected. But to hear it spelled out this explicitly? Hoo boy. The symbiotic relationship between ESPN and Tebow is fertilized by orders from above, according to Gottlieb:
Hoo boy. Notice how every broadcaster has come down so hard on the replacement refs? But it only really seemed to start in Week 2? This is not a coincidence.
Will Lucas from Fairfield, Conn., threw a no-hitter in the Little League World Series yesterday and was invited on the The Dan Patrick Show today to talk about it.
Commenting on topics as wide-ranging as the NCAA tournament, Peyton Manning's future, and "Canadian twit" Avril Lavigne, Gwar lead singer Oderus Urungus spent an hour on-set of The Dan Patrick Show this morning.
(He's talking about his own acrimonious exit from ESPN.) [NBC]
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…
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.
