Former CBS and ESPN reporter Bonnie Bernstein guest hosted for Dan Patrick on his nationally syndicated radio and TV show today. It was her third time hosting for DP and as she did in her two previous stints as sub, she did a bang up job. Bonnie has been a great listen and the reaction to her on Twitter and on DanPatrick.com has been mostly positive.
One thing that Dan does when he’s in the studio is to burn incense to keep the area smelling fresh. Today, Bonnie brought in a candle and allowed it to burn next to the console. As she was going through some papers, she put one next to her, not realizing that she covered the burning candle. The next part is high comedy. There is no audio with this video, but you really don’t need it. And Bonnie mouths an “S” bomb when she realizes what happens next. You’ll see DP Show Operations Manager Seton O’Connor come into the picture afterwards.
Great stuff. Quick thinking by Bonnie to stomp out the burning paper to prevent the fire from taking out the entire mancave.
Bonnie’s back in the big chair tomorrow as Dan recovers from knee surgery this week. The Dan Patrick Show airs nationally on Fox Sports Radio, DirecTV and Fox Sports Net from 9 a.m. to noon ET.
