Jump like you mean it:
6:32 — Victory Tavern should be busier than it is. And the pot stickers should be tastier (especially for the price). Eric and I are killing time, waiting for the taping of the show. Eric says Notre Dame will go 0-6 to start the season.
6:46 — College football has begun. Eric observes: “It is good to see football moves being made.”
6:51 — How many beers should one have before going on hi-def TV? Ordering my third. I’ll let you know.
7:02 — Cougar alert.
7:17 — Another question (as I order my fourth beer): if you think that is Eugene Lockhart across the bar, how disrespectful is it to say, “Are you Eugene Lockhart?”
7:22 — It’s Eugene Lockhart.
7:51 — Now in the green room. A producer tells me, “This is the Gordon Keith Show, so I can’t offer you anything to drink.”
7:57 — I’m standing in the wings, watching Gordon rehearse. Somebody, a minion, just called him “sir.” Odd. Then Gordon said, “Let’s rock and roll,” without irony. Also odd.
8:04 — Gordon is warming up the studio audience. Fifteen people? He has enlisted a child from the audience to ambush me during the interview. So that should be fun.
8:26 — Just finished with Gordon. I thought it went well, save for the part where he made fun of me for going bald. Check it out tonight at 10.
10:48 — Here’s a photo of Lockhart at Victory Tavern that I took back around 7:20. For some reason, he was showing his bicep to the guy next to him.
