Who is: The Perfect Sports Jeopardy! Host

According to Awful Announcing managing editor Matt Yodel, this fall’s jock-spinoff of the Alex Trebek staple with Dan Patrick hosting makes a lot of sense:

There’s a huge market out there for sports trivia and the addition of Patrick will immediately give this show credibility.

AP got the tipped scoop from Crackle yesterday, ahead of today’s lunchtime NYC presser. On this morning’s Dan Patrick Show meanwhile, DP was repeatedly explaining to stream-feed viewers why he was all dressed up with a post-broadcast place to go. He also reminded that Sony has been trying to put together a sports version of its iconic quiz show for several decades.

We agree with Yodel, Bleacher Report columnist Dan Carlson and others; the choice of Patrick is inspired. Nice to see Sony finally being able to make use of a long-ago claimed URL.
