Dan Patrick: I Am Not Asking Tom Brady Football Questions

Dan Patrick took part in the Let’s Go! podcast town hall this week and had a particular question to ask Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady and Jim Gray invited a star-studded sports media cast onto this week’s show to pepper the QB with all manner of questions.

“I wanted to tap into something that I’ve talked about on this show,” Patrick said on The Dan Patrick Show. “I was gonna sign a five-year contract [at ESPN], and I turned that down because my wife said, ‘the kids are all going to be grown up like you’re gonna miss out on this.'”

Brady has said for a while that he wants to play through his age-45 season, and even floated the idea of playing until he turns 50. He’s leading the league in most major statistical passing categories, proving that he still has plenty in the tank. Patrick wanted to know if the calls of family, not father time, would eventually decide for him.

“I wonder,” Patrick said on the SiriusXM Let’s Go podcast. “You’re 44, you have your kids, but that tug of war of wanting to be great, but also you know, your wife saying, if she does say. How do you kind of juggle that where you don’t feel guilty going to work?”

Brady responded honestly to the personal question from one dad to another. Patrick mentioned in his analysis of the interview that he wasn’t interested in asking football questions.

“It’s the same thing in this house,” Brady said. “I think my wife, as you know, held down the house for a long time now. I think there are things she wants to accomplish. She hasn’t worked as much over the last 10-12 years, you know, just raising our family and kind of committing to a life in Boston.

Brady took a second to collect his thoughts before finishing the response.

“It’s a very difficult issue to reconcile without just saying, hey it’s time to retire,” Brady said. “I think, you know, we are coming to the end here too.”

Listen to the full question and answer in the video clip 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.”
