Dan Patrick is one of, if not the best, interviewers in sports media. It’s hard to deny the radio host when guests appear on his show, but 8-time Olympic gold medal winner Usain Bolt didn’t need much prodding over his latest ask.

Patrick had the legendary Jamaican sprinter on The Dan Patrick Show Thursday and threw down the gauntlet for a race between Bolt and Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Many people consider Hill the fastest player in the NFL, while Bolt holds the world record in the men’s 100-meter dash at 9.572 seconds.

“This Tyreek Hill challenge,” Patrick began asking Bolt. “Is that ever going to happen? I have something here for you… He wants 40 [meters] you want 100, how about 70?”

The question perked Usain Bolt up a bit as he agreed he could take the wide receiver in a 70-meter race. If the 2019 Super Bowl festivities are any indication, it wouldn’t be much of a competition. Bolt hasn’t competed in track since 2017, but he ran a would-be NFL record 40-yard dash time of 4.22 seconds at a fan event. 

The sprinter rocked sweatpants and basic sneakers during the jaunt in 2019. Hill is no slouch, running a 4.29 40-yard dash at his Pro Day in 2016. Yet, Seven-hundredths of a second might as well be a lifetime in races like this one, leaving Bolt with a lot of confidence.

“I still don’t think he can take me at 40 meters,” Bolt said as the two broke down how the race might go. “Even if he gets there, it’s going to be really close.” 

Patrick wrapped up the niceties and got down to the brass tacks.

“Ok, this is what I’m suggesting the stakes are, ok?” Patrick began to ask Bolt. “A week after the Super Bowl, or it could be the Super Bowl weekend if he’s not playing, you put up one of your gold medals, and he puts up his Super Bowl ring?”

Usain Bolt loved the sound of that. After all, he has a lot more precious hardware to offer up than Hill.

“Nice… That would be big,” Bolt responded. “Yeah, I got eight [gold medals]. I don’t think he’s going to go for it.”

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
