Something else...

Oh... something else I'll tell ya.

When the TV says that Robert Smith is going to be on the Daily Show, that doesn't necessarily mean that the lead singer of the Cure is giving an interview, despite the fact that I've got CURE FEVER lately.

That said, the Robert Smith (ex-Minnesota Viking) interview is actually pretty awesome. He's recently written a book about sports and how ridiculous it is that sports figures are deified and how celebrities are adored and showered in awards and validation. I don't really do it justice. Make sure you catch the rerun. I'm going to check out Smith's book, "The Rest of the Iceberg".

Really? I didn't think the interview was that great. The idea isn't novel, either (that sports figures are deified, blah blah blah), but the novelty lies in the fact that a former sports dude is saying it this time. I wonder if it will make any waves ...

that's what i was excited about... the fact that a former sports figure was preaching this pretty heavily.... plus, i thought the guy had way more of a personality than most sports figures i see interviewed.
