0 Looks Like Those 15 Minutes of Fame Will Have to Wait :)
OK, well that was a lot of hype for nothing. ;-P
For those of you who didn't catch the televised events on ESPN, most of the footage from today's "Track & Field" programming was solely of the racing events, with a few sparse interviews with athletes.
All in all, ESPN ended up broadcasting only a few minutes of the USATF XC Championship; this footage was interspersed between the various heats of the Tyson invitational track meet, so there wasn't enough time for "fluff" interviews with volunteers. :)
So, not surprisingly, we didn't make the cut. :( Or rather, we WERE cut out. Hahahaha. The programming dude probably took one look at the footage & said, "Oh no, not that mouthy chick in the yeti getup. Cut!" :)
Juuuuust kidding. We probably barely registered on their radar. And frankly, I'm actually feeling relieved that our clip didn't air. Gee, I wonder why?! ;-)
Phew! Erik & I can continue enjoy being anonymous "nobodies" for a bit longer. :)
Regardless, thanks to everybody who tuned in to watch & also of course to those of you who emailed & commented!
Did any of you end up watching?
Have to say that it was really great to watch the athletes in both events. What amazing talent, eh?
