As I was saying....
I was diligently practicing what Jay Ellingson from Interbay Golf has been trying to teach me -- "Widen your stance. Slow down in the take away. Relax through impact until you reach full extension" -- when George Howell from KOMO news showed up, camera man trailing just behind.
I was on camera for a good five minutes, swinging away, sweating like a DC Congressman on Oprah. They ran a mic up my sweater (no, I didn't get felt up. George was a perfect gentleman) and asked me a few questions. Holy crap, is it scary trying to talk intelligently about major social issues while you're trying to hit a golf ball.
And they cut my favorite sound bite, jerks.
George: Is there enough room to build a prison here?
Me: I can't speak to that. After all, you can always build up.
They misspelled my name, too.
I now have 14 minutes and 38 seconds of fame left. Better use them wisely.
