Since there is NOTHING interesting happening in sports right now, here's a totally off-topic post -- Dan Patrick announced this afternoon that he is leaving ESPN. I can't say that I really care, but I was impressed at the fact that he has worked there for 18 years. I cannot imagine working any place for 18 years.

It's another one of those "Wow, am I getting old" deals, because it doesn't seem that long ago that ESPN was launched, and Patrick has worked there for 18 years?
