So What's Dan Patrick's Big Announcement?

Tuesday, July 03, 2007


I've spoken to a handful of people and no one seems to have the slightest idea of what's going on. Other sites have asked their sources and found nothing as well.

So who has a guess? Leave them in the comments, and the winner will get a Virtual AA High Five....

Also, you may have noticed the Out of Office assistant on the left there. In case you didn't AA will be on sabatical through July 9th. I may or may not have internet access where I am, so I thought I'd warn you ahead of time.

I'll be sticking around until the "Big Announcement" and then high-tailing it to Ohio (Yes I know.....don't say it). Have a great holiday and Happy Birthday America!

Dan Patrick's Big Announcement (The Big Lead)

UPDATE: So Dan isn't even on the Radio today....he's got a fill in. Now I'm confused.

Okay so Bob Valvano told me there is no announcement today because Dan isn't on the show. I don't even care anymore.....

P.S.- Joe Morgan is on right now.....shoot me in the face.

FINAL UPDATE: The rumor on the street (from multiple sources) is that Dan Patrick is leaving ESPN Radio. Not sure why that calls for him not announcing it today, but it could explain why Bob Valvano was doing the show.

If that IS the case then ESPN Radio is pretty much cooked. Who's ready for a 4 hour show with Bill Simmons following Shrutebag?!?!?

The last "Big Announcement" I remember DP having was that Olbermann was coming back to the show. (hehe... DP)

Enjoy coming up here to Ohio. It's supposed to rain (in the Northeast at least) the 4th onwards so you're getting here just in time.

Ohio isn't SO bad. What's not to like? Corn? Good! Cows? Good! Sports? Goo... damn.

You'll miss the fireworks extravaganza (you heard me) in Columbus.

Actually, I wonder if it's something about Showkiller leaving.

Oh-bye-o.

My girlfriend's favorite little bad joke. Besides the one between my legs.

Where in Ohio??? I totally recommend Put-In-Bay if you like drinking a shit ton without and rules or regulations.

If DP leaves I might throw my XM in to Lake Erie.

RUTS - I'm not sure whether to laugh or scream TMI. Likely both.

Guh. A real live three hour BS Report. Now that possibility is something to scream about.

I say they give Schrute seven hours a day and wait for him to collapse after a week or two. He'll never want to be on the radio again.

He's replacing Rosie on The View.

Kinda odd, considering the recent Late Show appearance.

KO made an off-hand comment that it would affect him, too, but who knows; he could've just been going along with whatever joke DP is perpetrating.

people say Dan Patrick would be stupid for leaving.

He's going to apologize on air for saying Robin Yount did not belong in the Baseball Hall of Fame...

If Dan does leave PLEASE ESPN bring back Eric K he does the NASCAR show now and used to be host of the sportsbash. He needs to be on the air and would be a GREAT host to take over the spot

I'm all for anything that gets Eric K off of NASCAR Now. The sooner the better, he's terrible.

Loved Erik K on Sports Bash. He is wasted on Nascar.
