Dan Patrick Says New Hair Is Sure Sign Drew Brees Is Retiring

“There’s no need to hide hair loss if you wear a helmet on TV.”

When a video of Drew Brees working out made social media rounds over the weekend, it caused many to wonder if it means the quarterback is getting ready to play one more season. But according to FOX Sports Radio host Dan Patrick, it looked more like Brees is preparing for TV. 

There’s no need to hide hair loss if you wear a helmet on TV. Brees’ hair has been thinning and receding for years, but he mostly kept it under his helmet. In the workout video, Brees was flaunting a thick head of hair most balding men can only dream of. 

There is no cure for hair loss, there are only ways to treat or hide it. As Patrick pointed out, one main reason Brees might have had a procedure to hide baldness is if he’s readying his looming TV career. 

“It dawned on me, Drew Brees has a full head of hair,” Patrick noted during his Monday radio show. “That’s the tip off. Drew Brees is truly retiring because he now has a full head of hair. I don’t know where he got it, but he has a full head of hair, he is ready for TV.”

It’s not without precedent, there have been plenty of hair plugs and pieces on TV. Jason Witten found a full head of hair when he joined ESPN’s Monday Night Football booth a couple of years ago, and lost it again when he decided to return to football. 

It would be a shame if Brees covered his new hair with a helmet, especially considering he has a media gig waiting. Prior to the 2020 NFL season, Brees signed two contracts, a $50 million extension with the Saints and a deal with NBC Sports that goes into effect when he’s done playing. Initially, Brees will join the network’s Notre Dame football game broadcast and work as a studio analyst for Football Night in America.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
