Paul Pabst Pays Off 5-Year-Old Bet On Dan Patrick Show

“The crew waited patiently on the couch as Pabst walked in to pay off one of the longest-tenured bets in the show’s history.”

Dan Patrick and the Danettes like to make friendly wagers amongst themselves, but a bet with a famous guest from five years ago had to be paid up on the show this week.

Paul Pabst made a bet with Michael Phelps in Dec. 2016 that the greatest Olympic Swimmer in history would end up coming out of retirement and swimming at the Tokyo Olympics.

That never paid off for Pabst as Phelps stayed retired and did go to Tokyo, albeit as a broadcaster for NBC platforms. All of those developments over the past five years meant an interesting wardrobe decision was in Pabst’s future.

“Ok, so you gotta wear my exact sized suit,” Phelps told Pabst on the show in 2016. 

“Whatever you wear, I wear big guy,” Pabst responded.

Flash forward to this week, and the Danettes had a lot of fun at one of their own’s expense. Unfortunately for Paul Pabst, the operating budget didn’t afford him a spa day for his waxing. With that in mind, Pabst used duct tape to do the trick.

The crew waited patiently on the couch as Pabst walked in to pay off one of the longest-tenured bets in the show’s history. 

“You know I am very pro-USA today,” Pabst said in his Olympic attire. “I think that the USA is not pro-me. I think they’d like to trade me.”

“I’ve never made more eye contact with you in my life,” Patrick jokingly said. To his credit, Pabst rolled in with the whole outfit on from the tight suit to the swim cap and goggles.

“Yes, we waxed the chest yesterday,” Paul Pabst said as he described the bootlegged process. “It took about 45 seconds because I don’t have a lot of chest hair.”

This is not the first, or the last time, a Danette’s paid off a bet in style. Watch the full video story on the saga from The Dan Patrick Show above.

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
