The Charlie Sheen-Dan Patrick Show

That’s what actor Charlie Sheen suggested he and sports talk radio show host Dan Patrick start calling their budding, eye-popping collaboration this morning, after he called in unannounced to follow up his much talked about Monday appearance on The Dan Patrick Show.

There are now possibly plans for Dan and “the Danettes” to take their Super Bowl RV to Sheen’s backyard for a future remote broadcast (Sheen has already texted his approval of the idea). Separately, Patrick may help produce a taped “tell all” interview between Sheen and New York Yankee Nick Swisher. This morning, Sheen recounted the mother of all media interventions:

Tomorrow morning, four Mercedes-Benz vehicular teams, each featuring a pair of drivers and “celebrity coach,” will depart for Dallas from LA, Chicago, New York and Tampa. It’s all part of an ingenious Twitter-follow Super Bowl contest put on by the car manufacturer.

The LA team features singer Pete Wentz (@petewentz) and a pair of Green Bay Packer fans, Todd Sanders (@tsand) and John Pederson (@ijohnpederson) (pictured), who actually met through Twitter. At the end of the February 2nd-4th event, which also has a charity component, a follower of the winning team will be randomly selected for a Grand Prize along with 20 others:

Each Twitter race team will select two winners from those participants who have joined their team and the race director (@MbtweetraceHQ) will select twelve additional winners. Winners will be those participants that have tweeted the most plentiful, creative and timely tweets.
