Sports Broadcaster and Radio Host Dan Patrick Announces Retirement

I have to be honest, when I first saw the headline, I could not believe that this was even being talked about.

After reading the report, it started to make sense.

Patrick made the announcement amid a fantasy “lottery” discussion, but his retirement is not quite as urgent as it initially sounded.

The Date is Set

Patrick became a household name during his time working for ESPN.

He has been with the network for almost two decades, almost as long as he has hosted his radio program.

The crew was discussing what everyone would do if they had hit the lottery when someone posed the question to Patrick what his future plans were for the show, reported the New York Post.

That is when Patrick dropped the bomb, saying that he only planned on working for four more years before completely walking away.

Patrick stated, “Here is the breaking news: Four more years in December, that’s how long I’m going to do this for,” reported the Daily Caller.

Patrick was one of my favorite personalities on ESPN before the network became a liberal trashcan for political opinions.

If you watched that video of Patrick, you saw how he was part of the problem, taking his digs against Clarence Thomas.

Even so, I still have fond memories of Patrick during his early days at ESPN, as his unique style made the broadcast very fun. It was just a shame that he, like most everyone else in the industry, decided to push their political opinions on us when all we were looking for was sports news.
