My CBS News Interview with Katie Couric is LIVE!

Picture 2
I am just so excited to share the link with you of my interview with the CBS News with Katie Couric.  I haven’t figured out how to embed the link, so you’ll just have to click it here.

You might remember back in March when the reporters came to my home to interview me.

Finally it’s live!  Woot!  I can’t deny that I was nervous that they wouldn’t edit judiciously and all of America would have to hear my awkard and corny commentary on film!  It’s bad enough that there were more than three seconds of footage of my huge, monster hammer thumbs and that I totally have man-voice!

Sadly, Cooper’s debut was edited out, but he did have a good few moments on film when they were here.  After all, this business was built around him!

Thanks CBS–especially Melissa  and Mr. Schlesinger for putting this together for me!  I had a really great time and I’m so happy to finally see it on film!

I’d love to hear from you in the comments below–and please help to spread the word by sharing the link!
