Charlie Sheen Talks To Dan Patrick on DirecTV's "The Dan Patrick Show"

THE DAN PATRICK TELEVISION SHOW (Airs 9 AM-Noon on DIRECTV's The 101 Network) Post Game Recap - Newsworthy Items, Interesting Info and Quotes From Today's Show

February 14, 2011

On today's show, actor Charlie Sheen joined Dan and the team to talk about his recent pep talk to UCLA baseball, as well as some of the recent news surrounding him. Key sound bites from the interview follow below:

Segment 1

Segment 2

Charlie Sheen on what is happening with Two and a Half Men:

"We are on forced hiatus. They said, 'You get ready and we'll get ready.' And I got ready and went back and nobody's there. I don't know what to tell you, Dan. Nobody is there... I don't know what to tell you, man. I'm here and I'm ready. They're not. Bring it, you know?"

Charlie Sheen on when Two and a Half Men is scheduled to start shooting again:

"I believe August of 2014 at this pace. I don't know, it's supposed to be the 28th or the 29th. That's what it is! It's the 29th of the non-leap year."

Charlie Sheen on when he wants to go back to work:

"Yeah. I'm a man of my word, I have a contract. They said get your act together and I did. I think just maybe it was a timing thing. I didn't think it was going to happen this fast. Check it, it's like I heal really quickly. But I unravel pretty quickly. So get me right now, guys."

Charlie Sheen explains how he came up with his speech for the UCLA baseball team:

"I realized what props I was holding. I had a bottle of chocolate milk and I had rumors that I've had problems with, I don't know, crack, and it just came out of me like poetry, Dan. Like poetry... Thank God, [the coach] told me to tell them congrats in the World Series last year. I wasn't watching a lot of that, you know, at the time. So I walked over and said, 'Hey guys, congrats on the World Series last year.' So, he gave me my first line. Which is good, a good place to start, right? Well, people kind of know I've had some problems lately and I'm sort of notorious for sort of surfacing and going deep undercover, deep under-ground. So, I said stay away from the crack, which I think is a pretty good advice unless, you can manage it socially, Dan. If you can manage it socially, then go for it, but not a lot of people can."

Charlie Sheen on whether or not he thought he could manage crack socially or not:

"Well, yeah, but that kinda blew up in my face... like an exploding crack pipe, Dan. Sorry"

Charlie Sheen on whether or not he is sober and clean now:

"Oh, yeah. One hundred percent, one hundred percent. Peeing clean. I just said pee on your show, sorry man. I feel great, man. I feel great. I am here and ready... I'm actually hungry."

Charlie Sheen why being creatively hungry is something of a new phenomenon for him:

"A little bit, yeah. Because you do something like this [Two and a Half Men] and you get into kind of a, I don't want to say a redundant pattern, but it gets very sort of, uh, redundant. And you gotta find things about it to reignite the passion. The passion can always be there if the pilot light is still burning."

Charlie Sheen on why he was at UCLA in the first place:

"We've been hitting there for years. I made a nice donation to the team years ago and they said, anytime and I took them up on it. I'm a self-taught left handed hitter, but not until I was an adult."

Charlie Sheen on the donation he made to the UCLA Bruins:

"Ten grand. For new uniforms or bats or something. It seems like everyone is always focusing on football and baseball, it's always like, you guys can use all that old gear."

Charlie Sheen on who is more valuable � him to CBS or Albert Pujols to the Cardinals?

"Well, duh. No I'm joking. We're both on the talent side and when you've got something, you got a commodity, when you become a commodity, it's on a different level. I'm a humble guy and I'd like to believe that Albert is."

Charlie Sheen on if he had a do-over, would he be a great baseball player or great actor?

"Oh gosh, wow. Great baseball player but here's the problem, I'm 45 now and all the girls say I look 35 but I'd have been retired by now."


Dan Patrick, sportscaster extraordinaire, made his triumphant return to television in August 2009 with the premiere of The Dan Patrick Show on DIRECTV's The 101 Network. While his current radio show of the same name serves as the basis for the DIRECTV series, the show is far more than just a basic simulcast. Expanding on the current format and using Patrick's trademark humor and madcap interaction with his production staff, "The Dan-ettes", as well as revealing behind the scenes antics and interstitial videos, the series is a unique blend of situational comedy, breaking sports news, unparalleled insider access and pop culture commentary. By allowing viewers to see the true comedy that surrounds Patrick and his team, The Dan Patrick Show reveals the humor in sports broadcasting while opening the locker room doors to the world of sports. In October of 2010, DIRECTV and Fox Sports Net (FSN) made broadcast history through a syndication deal that enables FSN to distribute The Dan Patrick Show to its regional sports networks (RSNs) and affiliates, including DIRECTV's RSNs, reaching more than 85 million homes and marking the first time that a programming distributor has sold its original content into national syndication.
