Dan Patrick leaving ESPN?

So the blogs are claiming today, as he purportedly will shop a national Syndicated radio show. Explains, perhaps, why Patrick was absent from his usual gig at the NBA Draft.

What's amazing--and possibly, just a giant concidence--is that last week marked the 10th anniversary of Keith Olbermann's departure from SportsCenter (tip of the cap to Awful Announcing). A loss that, quite frankly, I don't think the Big Show has ever recovered from. While Olbermann took some time finding his niche, he's carved out considerable success on MSNBC--and certainly has a better post-SC career than, say, Craig Kilborn.

How can Dan Patrick not itch to similarly branch out?

Olbermann has found success at MSNBC? Last I heard his ratings sucked. And alas, so does he.

I thought his "mock Bill O'Reilly" strategy had paid off--both in ratings and with a fat new contract a few months ago. But as always, we have no accountability at WRG; we reserve the right to be not only wrong, but flat-out erroneous.

And yeah, I find the guy generally insufferable in his present incarnation. But he was awesome with Patrick on SC, you have to admit. Right place, right team, etc.
