Which Sports Personality Was Asked To Try Out For The Price Is Right?

Friday, June 29, 2007

Just heard this on the Big Show with Dan and Keith, and SbB has the story from the LA Daily News....

Dan Patrick was asked to try out for the Price Is Right, but declined.

The price may be right in luring the ESPN/ABC personality and weekday ESPN Radio sports-talk host, who sources insist has been contacted by the producers of the legendary game show "The Price Is Right" and is on the short list of those who'll be asked to take part in auditions to replace the retired Bob Barker, who recently ended his 35-year run. Patrick wouldn't comment on the report except to say: "Len Barker was always one of my favorite pitchers."
Not sure how I feel about that. I guess it's not a bad move necessarily, and Dan really only works 3-4 hours a day. I don't really believe the Rosie rumors so it looks like his only competition would be Mark Steines.....NBA All-Star Celebrity Game MVP!!!

Shit, Kevin Frazier already left for Entertainment Tonight. At least, DP would be jumping for show with dignity.

They should have Phil The Showkiller host The Price is Right.

Rosie O'Donnell is so full of crap that they offered her the job. Old ladies are their biggest rating and old ladies don't like fat lesbians.

I totally agree with Mant...plus the show has viewers that are older, retired, and more traditional. I doubt that even if they know who Dan Patrick is, that they could not recall him at any given moment due to the onset of Alzheimers.

As for Rosie, any "stupid, ugly, fat, lazy, stupid, ugly, fat, lazy, and stupid, lazy, ugly, and fat person" (according to the Grand Wizard, Trump) will not go over well that audience.

You missed the best part of that Daily News article:
• And you gotta like the way David Letterman introduced Patrick and Keith Olbermann during their "Late Night" appearance Wednesday: "These two guys, like 10 years ago, they were on ESPN 'SportsCenter' ... that's when it was wacky and crazy and informational. And now it's just wacky and crazy."
