Here is what we learned…  While born in Tucson, he grew up in Northern California following the Oakland Raiders, Oakland A’s, and Golden State Warriors. The play by play man for these teams was Bill King (audio sample and related stories here), an apparent legend in the Bay Area, although he is not in the baseball hall of fame.

Pat does not visit fan blogs or websites, read fan comments, or own an iPod. He carrys CDs with him, his favorites being Van Morrison, Diana Krall, Bob Seger, and Jimmy Buffett among others.
