For fans of the Dan Le Batard Show, it’s been an adventure the past year-plus. Le Batard himself on air was clearly at his wits end with terrestrial radio, the Magic Crate of Content was getting such a workout to keep from even more trouble from happening, and there was a waft of tension from the studios in South Beach.
Pretty good we’d say! And while Dan’s tequila budget, the Shipping Container’s emerging families, and Stugotz’s home in Valdosta, Georgia are the true winners, you can be too with a free $25,000 contest about the “Freedumb” marathon show from DraftKings Sportsbook for today’s broadcast live from The Clevelander in Miami. Just make some correct predictions on what will happen during the 24 hours of content starting Friday, June 4th at noon.
We take our best crack at some predictions below, because prediction radio is what this show does best!
How many times will “Chris Wittyngham is a Fancy Lad” play?
It’s a 24-hour show today, and you can bet one of the newest members of the Shipping Container will be in his fanciest form as the hours wear on. At some point there will be an extended discussion of Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League victory, and that should come with all sorts of words pronounced in the Queen’s English.
How many word combinations will Chris Cote have?
We love Chris and what he adds to show, even up to getting fired and making this entire thing possible. But 10 new word combos is a ton when there’s going to be a cast of thousands on air today.
Will someone end up in the Tub of Leaked Confidence?
A new environment where everyone is figuring it out on the fly? We likely see multiple people flame out on a microphone today.
Will Mike fall asleep before 11 AM ET on Saturday?
No one appears to work harder, or care as much about how the product sounds and looks each day, than the long-time executive producer of the show. We say Control Freak Mike makes it to the finish line before falling apart.
Who will be The Best Chris?
Can they fight for it? We’ve got 24 hours to kill. But let’s not have them race for it, as then Cote will have it in the bag.
Will Greg Cote sing?
Let’s hope so! The sexagenarian narcissist of the Le Batard universe has an entire hour of live programming to fill at 4:00 a.m. You never know... but we bet his golden pipes get a bit of a workout.
What time will the first batch of cafecito make an appearance?
Before 6 PM ET on Friday
Between 6-9 PM ET on Friday
Between 9 PM-Midnight ET on Friday
12:01 AM ET or later on Saturday
The good thing about cafecitos is you can always order more cafecitos. If you’ve never had the Cuban brew, it can start both your morning and your car.
Who will curse first?
Any other person / nobody curses
Something we’ve come to learn about Dan since leaving FCC regulations behind is he has quite the salty mouth on him. He’ll likely open the show, and this prop could very well be decided by 12:01 p.m. Friday.
What color stain will Stugotz’s suit have first?
Any other color / no stain
Kind Bars are mostly brown, right?
