The sword recently posted (Bob Costas as Alpha Dog, Dan as Fire Hydrant?) that Bob Costas owns Dan Patrick and Michael Kay by launching into his own agendas right out of the shoot when either radio host interviews him, and prior to that essay the sword had alerted Dan via other channels. We are proud to report that Costas is lately showing more respect, as evidenced by his appearance last Tuesday on the Dan Patrick show. Here is the link.
In listening to the opening, we find Bob in the more subdued role of model guest, waiting politely for Dan to set the agenda. Compared to countless previous interviews, this Costas is downright docile, and the sword takes full credit as the prime mover. Congratulations, Dan, for some behind-the-scenes negotiation with a legend; you’re doing big boy things when you own your space despite your urge to be solicitous with your hero.
