Tell me! Tell me!


There are many bad things that can happen during an interview with someone. He’s boring. He talks waytoofast or waaaaaaayyyyy tooooooo sllllloooooooow. He says nothing. Or comes armed with a publicist who refuses to leave his side.

The absolute worst thing just happened to me two minutes ago, with a prominent former NFL star: “Oh, I have an absolutely terrific story about [PLAYER I’M WRITING ABOUT]. Terrific! Wait, you know what, I can’t tell that story. Too embarrassing.”

No, really, you can!

“No, I can’t. I just can’t.”

I like to think decent reporting skills can dislodge any good story from a mouth. Sometimes, however, it just doesn’t happen.
