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!!!
