I'm lucky. About the same time that Patrick coms on around here is the same time that Steve Szaban and the Sports Reporters is coming on WTEM.
Apparently he will make the announcement Thursday:http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/columnists/cs-070703teddy,1,3876021.column?coll=cs-home-headlinesAnd, speculation is that he is gone.
The lead on that column is hysterical.

Outstanding. One of the best lines I've read in years.
Throw DP to the wolves on 1310 The Ticket out of DFW, or anything else just as long as he doesn't wind up ruining the greatness of Inside the NBA on TNT.
Anybody know if he's on today?
What a fraud
Dan Patrick is awesome; I would love to see him interview Tank Johnson.[/makingspnitedsheadexplode]
I repeat:self-serving, pompous ass.Dear Dan:We don't give a fuck what you're doing. Good-bye.

This is ESPN. How is retirement so far?Bob: Going well. In fact, I'm on the course making Sandler my bitch again. For real.ESPN: That's good, that's good. Say, we wanted to ask you if you were interested in doing some guest appearance work, if it's workable in your schedule.Bob: Go on...ESPN: Well, there was talk that Dan Patrick, one of our stars, is planning on making a major announcement, but he's decided to tease the listeners and us on when he makes his decision. We didn't want to be stuck between a rock and Holly's boobs, eh, a hard place. So, we are looking for someone with a loyal and strong following who can replace Dan if and when he leaves. Simply put, we really don't care if he comes back or not. Bob: What's the details of this offer? (takes a swing at Sandler on the 10th Hole while talking)ESPN: Money is not a problem for us to give you. We're actually desperate to fill in air time with quality people. It's a three hour shift Monday through Friday. You can do a radio version of TPIR or rerun some of your best shows. The listeners will eat it up!! (Sandler in the background mocking): "They're all going to laugh at you!"Bob: (taking his 5-iron and wrapping around Sandler's neck, strangling him)Well gee, I don't know. I'm just getting used to hitting the links and enjoying retirement. Did you know that Adam Sandler is a wonderful young man? Can you give O'Donnell a call? I heard she would really love to keep her family in New York and Bristol is a short trip for her. I did mentioned her for the TPIR job, but at her last job, she was on some shaky ground. ESPN: We could give her a call. After all, we are desperate for a big name to fill our 12pm to 3pm slot. Seibel, Steve Phillips, Berithume, and Jason Smith are not, well, strong enough name-wise and ego-driven, to pull this off. Thanks again Bob!Bob: Don't you mention it! And don't forget to help control the pet population, have your pets spay or neutered, good-bye everybody!!!(breaking the 3-wood over a newly deceased Adam Sandler)
Why do people in the industry get so worked up over ESPN personalities?
