Originally posted by odessasteps I've read one review so far (Sports by Brooks) and it was not complimentary.
They said it felt like the same bland show right after Dibble left.
I recorded it this AM, but haven't listened yet.
I listened all the way through this morning. It wasnt his most laugh-packed show and it did get dull at times, but overall I'm glad he's back on the radio. Still 10x better than Cowherd too. At leat Dan tells me what he actually thinks instead of spewing out the most controversial statement he can think of to drum up callers to argue with. I'd prefer him at his old time slot, but I'll take what I can get. He DID mention that he'd have Reggie Miller in studio tomorrow, so that should be must-listen.
It's too bad Reggie Miller cant be DP's permanent co-host. He seems to watch a lot of sports and sounds pretty knowledgeable too. Dan broadcasted all of last week's shows from L.A., and isnt Best Damn taped in L.A.? And isnt Dibbs still on Best Damn? I kinda expected Dibbs to call in or something, but I guess not.
The first couple NEW DP shows were kinda dull, but things definitely picked up after that. I really enjoyed the last 2 or 3. However, that may have been because his guests got better.
Also, I'm listening to Jim Rome's show today. He's not in, but some other dude whose name I keep missing is subbing for him and it's pretty good so far. I listened to about 10 minutes of Rome last week and I had to turn it off. DP and Rome are both carried by Clear Channel and DP mentioned several times last week that he is Rome's lead-in across the country, which is one of the things he wanted to do. DP was in L.A. last week and Rome is always in L.A., so I expected a tie-in there somewhere but nope.
I also had the misfortune of turning in the day Reilly was on, so I immediately changed the channel.
Well, now you're really screwed.
Originally posted by Newsday Dan Patrick will be joining Sports Illustrated in a variety of capacities, including writing a weekly column for the magazine beginning in January and having his syndicated radio show streamed on SI.com.
SI writers such as Peter King (formerly of Newsday), Tom Verducci (formerly of Newsday) and Rick Reilly (not formerly of Newsday) will make regular appearances on his radio show.
For those of you needing an "extra" DP fix today, catch the replay of Steve Czaban's "First Team on Fox" at around 2:10 est this afternoon on XM or on FoxSports.com to catch DP's cameo drop by the studio appearance from earlier this morning. He discussed how he and Rick Reilly(SP?) have basically traded careers (SI v. ESPN).

St. Nick left us tickets, so I took a 1/2 day on the 9th and my family and I caught it on opening day. We all loved it, and I agree the allegories were there if you were looking for them (which for me was fine...
