How will the Dan Patrick show be received in Columbus?

Discussion in 'ESPN's 04-05 war against tOSU and Tressel' started by ysubuck, Nov 15, 2004.

    The Dan Patrick show is still coming to Columbus for their show on Friday November 19. They will be broadcasting from the Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe.

    My question is this: Do I go? How should I act? If I go, is it in any way supporting ESPN, or simply supporting a Columbus business.

    I want to go and throw stuff at them, but Dan Patrick has been pretty quiet about this whole thing other than the interview with Tom Friend in which Dan sounded less than convinced by Friend's answers to his questions.

    As you say, Patrick has been one of the few, if not the only, ESPNer to refuse to jump on the bashwagon (hey, I like that word). No sense slamming him. Might as well support a local business, and if Patrick remains neutral, show support...

    Be kind to Dan Patrick. After all, he's pretty much behaved well during this debacle, and deep down, he is also a Buckeye fan. Feel free to direct plenty of venom at his employer though.

    I'll be there. DP is one of the good guys. If I get a chance to be heard, I'll let it rip on his employer. Otherwise, I'm just going to have some wings and a few primers before the real drinking starts and I end up in Mirror Lake.

    How about a Pro-Patrick, ANTI-ESPN t-shirt??

    Patrick is a native Ohioan so show him so love. Hw was born in Zanesville and was raised in Mason.

    BTW, most people don't know this but his real last name is Pugh. Patrick is his middle name.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    If someone has a chance to speak with him, (or get any air time) you might want to point out that he's much better than espn, and should be concerned about his reputation due to the association he has with them. You might also suggest that he should take his talent somewhere else- somewhere that operates with dignity and ethics.

    Dan Patrick seems like a stand up guy to me and calls Bullshit when he sees it, give him a pass but screw his employer.

    and when you are there......

    dont forget all of the good that the Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe does for the Athletics program....

    There is a reason why recruits are taken there for dinner.....

    I know the owner and he bleeds S&G.......

    DH, for you I am off that subject. I still think he would be a hero if he told them to take a hike.

    Time to put this ugly mess behind us.

    i think he would be a hero if buckeye fans showed up and were able to state their case against espn and tom friend in an intelligent and respectful manner...

    he is giving the nation a chance to hear our side from our turf.....
