Well, today Dan Patrick was back on the radio, much to my surprise.
I didn't get to catch all of the show, but from what I heard, he had been vacationing, most likely using up vacation days before he leaves ESPN after Friday's show. I didn't hear an explanation why he missed Monday and Tuesday, when ESPN, himself, and the guest hosts had been saying that he would be there.
He also shared that he now has a website where fans can keep up with what his plans are after he leaves.
It doesn't sound like his tag team partner, Keith Olbermann, will be around for any final Big Shows.
