Dan and the “Danettes” have embraced the elements and found a way to incorporate it into the show.
“We knew we were going to be cold,” Pabst said. “Our set is half-indoor, half-outdoor. Right before the show, we were like let’s embrace it. Nobody back home wants to hear a bunch of whiny media members complain about the weather because they have bad weather and they don’t get a free trip to the Super Bowl. We decided to reenact great cold weather plays in sports history. We did the “Tuck Rule” game and the Leon Lett game and went out on the snow.”
Despite the frigid weather, Pabst would rather broadcast in the cold than extreme heat. “I think I would rather be cold than hot,” Pabst added. “We once did a show in Dayton and it was 103 degrees. It was just miserable. There was nothing fun about it. There’s nothing you could do with it as a producer.”
