Three Guys Before The Game – Mike Patrick Visits (Episode 379)

The game was over. He walked into an empty broadcast booth at Mountaineer Field and screamed. (He really screamed)

That’s how Clarksburg native and retired ESPN play-by-play announcer Mike Patrick dealt with No. 2 West Virginia’s 13-9 upset loss to the Pitt Panthers in 2007.

Patrick had just broadcast the game, and like all Mountaineer fans, was in stunned disbelief.

That memory is just one of many Patrick shares with the “Guys” in this episode.

How did Patrick become one of the most respected voices in sports broadcasting? Who are his broadcast heroes? And, what would make him return to the booth?
