DirecTV 101[edit]

Someone with better wiki skills than me should mention that the show is now simulcast live on DirecTV's 'The 101' (talk) 14:52, 14 August 2009 (UTC)Signed by sportsjefe.

Where is it broadcast from?[edit]

From the photo montage on the TV broadcast it looks like it's being broadcast from the East Coast, but it airtime is stated in Pacific Time. --KJRehberg (talk) 17:42, 18 August 2009 (UTC) .

Too much detailed trivia[edit]

I think it would be a lot better to say something like "The show features interviews from sports figures, as well as numerous celebrities and public figures outside the sports world" Rather than listing everyone by name. Also, the reoccurring segments, like the "bong" or "Learn Today," are okay, but there is just too much trivial stuff here, and it needs to be pruned. Anyone disagree? I'll give it a couple days and then give it a go. The Eskimo (talk) 15:30, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

I mistakenly read this page after the article page. Just yest. I added quite a few more guests, as the article seemed to have more details of the days the show was aired by ESPN rather than its current state. I agree with the above comments. There are just too many guests Patrick has had on his shows over the years that listing even a handful of them becomes hard to do, as one would need to decide which guests appear in the article and which ones are left out. I took a look at a few other shows, such as Late Show with David Letterman and see just a few guest names appear in the article. Perhaps Patrick shows that feature a guest where something which helps give context to the show or was a major moment should be listed. Zepppep34 (talk) 05:37, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Interview clips[edit]

This list, besides being unreferenced and annoyingly long, only applies to the old show and is out of place in the article as it now stands.

Patrick has had a number of infamous interviews from which sound bites would be replayed, some containing interesting examples of malapropisms:

  • Anna Benson, wife of former Baltimore Orioles pitcher Kris Benson, told Patrick, "I have huge breasteses!"
  • Olympic skater-turned-professional boxer Tonya Harding told Patrick in 2004, "I refuse to make a skeptical of my boxing career."
  • An irritated Harding said to Patrick before passing the phone to her promoter, "Hold on a second, Paul wants to talk to you."
  • NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas opened an interview saying "Hello, loser," referring to how he would annually defeat Patrick for the Sports Emmy for "Best In-Studio Host."
  • Duke University men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski in a press conference with a nasally voice saying, "I love Duke."
  • Former NBA free agent guard Steve Francis saying "nice" at the end of an interview instead of a traditional farewell phrase.
  • Patrick saying, "I'm pathetic" and "and I love Wang!"
  • Olbermann saying, "Oh, Alex!" referring to MLB third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
  • Olbermann and Patrick bickering, "My show, my show, my show!" in the vein of the "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha" line from the Brady Bunch.
  • Patrick using the phrase "Saving the democracy" to refer to Olbermann's work on his political analysis show Countdown.
  • Partial clip of Carl Lewis botching the national anthem.
  • Boxer Tommy Morrison ending his interview by saying, "I'm going to praise God all the way to the bank."
  • Free agent receiver Terrell Owens saying, " I love me some me."
  • Then-Miami Heat center Shaquille O'Neal during the 2006 NBA Finals saying, "Dan Patrick, shut the hell up" over the P.A. system when Patrick was on air whilst O'Neal was speaking with reporters during a press conference.
  • Former NBA guard Reggie Miller saying during an NBA broadcast, "With a full steam of head."
  • MLB journeyman Matt Stairs, describing his "ass getting hammered by guys" during a celebration following a home run, and how "there's no better feeling than having that done".
  • Gary Miller creating an inadvertent blooper reel while preparing for a SportsCenter soccer breakdown during the 1994 World Cup. Miller butchered "FIFA" (the name of soccer's governing body), "Rigobert Bahanag Song" and "Gianluca Pagliuca". As referenced often by Patrick and his crew, the clip begins with Miller saying "Soccer breakdown in 3, 2, 1".
  • David Stern stating "the palaver," a partial clip from a heated 2007 interview Patrick did with the NBA commissioner following suspensions given, namely to Amar'e Stoudemire, after a game played between Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs.
    • I re-added the soccer breakdown since it is still in use. Lambertman (talk) 12:50, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Run-on Sentence[edit]

This is in the running for the 'Worst run-on sentence online": Dan Patrick has stated a close professional relationship or friendship with several in the sports and media world, including: Charles Barkley, who has talked about range of issues with Patrick on air, including gambling addiction and racial issues, as well as funnier stories when the two have golfed together, and whom may be inquire when the two are getting together next; Adam Sandler, whom Patrick will invite on the show to talk about sports or movies, in addition to offering Patrick movie roles in films Sandler helps produce; Bob Costas, whom Patrick considers a mentor and has credited him with "being the best in the business" and sometimes jokingly becomes irritated when talking about Sports Emmy Award Costas has won, even with Patrick nominated in the same category for; and Reggie Miller, whom Patrick will try to arrange a dinner or visit to one of Miller's homes in Southern California when Patrick may be on a West Coast tour."

I realize I'm allowed to fix that, but I'm not sure what it's supposed to be saying, especially the part about "and whom may be inquire when the two are getting together next". Isn't it equally important that ESPN will not allow their personnel to be on the DP Show?" 2602:306:CDAA:A460:2DAD:7887:48B:1C0 (talk) 16:43, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
