BREAKING: Pat McAfee Is Joining ESPN's 'First Take' With Stephen A Smith

The First Take debate desk just got more intense.

The news comes on the same day “The Pat McAfee Show” made its official ESPN debut. It’s clear First Take is trying to build their show with personalities after Skip Bayless and Fox Sports retooled their show last week with a revamped cast to include Michael Irvin, Keshawn Johnson, Richard Sherman, Josina Anderson and Rachel Nichols.
