Dan Patrick has never had a problem sharing the spotlight with his Danettes. The four guys on the other side of the glass that make up the show’s production crew have grown into characters on their own with opinions and bits that draw praise and criticism from listeners.
On Tuesday’s show, Patrick “Seton” O’Connor and Andrew “McLovin'” Perloff got into an argument over where they expected Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields to land in the upcoming NFL Draft. Patrick set the over/under on 8.5 as to which pick would be the one where Fields hears his name called. Perloff believes it will happen before. O’Connor believes it will come after.
If Justin Fields is off the board by pick 8, O’Connor will take a pie to the face. If he goes at number 9, Perloff will take a pie to the face. Hang on though, that is not the end of the bet. Perloff will take one pie to the face for every pick after number 8 that goes by before Fields is selected.
“If the Buccaneers take him at the end of the first round, that will be 24 pies for McLovin'” executive producer Todd Fritz said, referencing NBC Sports’ Chris Simms, who has Fields going all the way down at pick 32.
Dan Patrick did promise if the punishment does reach 24 pies, he will stretch out the action over two days. Perloff said that he was a little disappointed that his fellow Danette was not facing the same stakes. That prompted Patrick to scold Perloff for taking the bet if he didn’t like the terms.
The Danettes aren’t the only ones divided on Justin Fields. It seems wherever you turn for your draft information, there is a wide swath of opinions from the 49ers taking him at number 3, with the Mac Jones love being a smokescreen, all the way to the aforementioned Simms, who predicts Fields will be the final pick of the Draft’s first round.
Nick Ashooh Exits NBC Sports Washington For Audacy, BetQL
“He will write and host shows for the BetQL Network. He will also host two weekend shows on CBS Sports Network.”
Congratulations are in order for Nick Ashooh. The NBC Sports Washington host has a new gig that will take him off of television and more solidly into the gambling space.
Ashooh joins Audacy for a multi-platform role that will see him talking sports and gambling in a number of places. He will write and host shows for the BetQL Network. He will also host two weekend shows on CBS Sports Network.
The BetQL Network continues to expand, having just turned on an affiliate in Buffalo. The addition of Nick Ashooh will give BetQL more content to promote in more places.
When Ashooh started at NBC Sports Washington, he was paired with Wes Hall. The duo hosted Wizards Outsiders for the network. Alexa Shaw was later added to the cast and the show morphed into DC Sports Live.
“This has been a long process that of course means the end of one really great era in my career, but the chance to help build something new moving forward,” Ashooh wrote on his blog.
Fortunately for his fans in the Washington, DC area, Audacy owns both of the local sports stations. That means Nick Ashooh can continue to show up on both 106.7 The Fan and The Team 980.
Erin Andrews: ‘I Panic Every Time I Have To Grab Bill Belichick’
“McAfee agreed with Andrews that it can be a fun game to crack a tough nut in the interview.”
Come for the sticks on puck, stay for the pitbull-Nick Saban comparisons.
Fox Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews made her debut appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday and had some interesting things to say about interacting with coaches.
“The thing is for me is I just want them to respect me and know that I work my a*s off and I’m studying, and I’m not trying to ask dumb questions,” Andrews said on the show. “Look I panic, I sweat every time I have to grab Bill Belichick at halftime, and you know there’s been a couple times where I’ve been like, ‘ughhhhh crap! crap!'”
Andrews got her start in sports media working for Fox Sports Florida as a freelance reporter and would go on to work for ESPN from 2004-12 and has been at Fox Sports ever since. She respects plenty of coaches but not as much as the one she is naming her firstborn child after.
“I mean listen when I first interviewed Nick Saban,” Andrews recounted. “I used to be at arm’s length from him because I was so intimidated, I was so scared, I didn’t want to piss him off. Now I’m going to name my firstborn ‘Saban.’ This is coming from a Florida Gator, here’s one of my pompoms, because that guy’s just a god.”
McAfee agreed with Andrews that it can be a fun game to crack a tough nut in the interview.
“They also appreciate if you come with any type of confidence,” McAfee said in response. “I feel like with a lot of those people it’s almost like a pitbull right? If a pitbull senses that you’re scared at all, it’s a completely different game between you and the dog… If you just come in with confidence they appreciate that, and that’s why you crush it every time.”

SiriusXM Planning 28 Hours Of Ryder Cup Coverage
“Greg Norman headlines the broadcast crew as an analyst alongside play-by-play voice Brian Katrek.”
The 2020 Ryder Cup is just days away, and SiriusXM is covering all the angles surrounding golf’s premier international event. Schedulers postponed the event last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The competition is happening in the U.S. this time around, with golfers flocking to Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI, for the tournament from Sept. 24-26.
“The Ryder Cup is one of the most exciting competitions in all of sports, and we’re thrilled to once again deliver fans the best and most comprehensive audio broadcast of the event,” SiriusXM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein said in a press release. “Our broadcast team will take our listeners inside the ropes at Whistling Straits, so they can experience all the pressure-packed moments live and feel as though they are walking the course alongside these great players.”
SiriusXM is airing 28 hours of live play-by-play coverage of the event, with first tee announcements set for 8 a.m. ET Friday on channel 92. Greg Norman headlines the broadcast crew as an analyst alongside play-by-play voice Brian Katrek.
Taylor Zarzour and Carl Paulson are working as the hosts and analysts for Ryder Cup morning matches. John Maginnes, Fred Albers, and Mark Carnevale are on-course reporters delivering live shot calls and updates on all the action at Whistling Straits. Colt Knost is filling the role of roving on-course analyst.
Gary Williams, Dennis Paulson, and Mark Lye are hosting a Ryder Cup pregame show each morning leading into the play-by-play. Chantal McCabe is joining the crew to co-host the pregame show on Sunday. After the matches end each day, Drew Stoltz, Jason Sobel, and Gary McCord have fans covered with reaction to all of the on-course play during a three-hour Ryder Cup postgame show.
The Ryder Cup’s turned into a back-and-forth affair between the United States and Europe over the last five years. The Americans came out on top in 2016, but the Europeans held serve three years ago when the event flipped back across the pond.
