This is probably old news to most of you, but I was interviewed on Channel 9 news the other day. What happened was, Friday afternoon, me and Sammy had just got done with a nice game of ping pong at the SAC game room. Walking back, we saw a Channel 9 TV truck. We figured there was some live remote or something, and joked about bugging the cameraman. Well, he walks up to us and asks if we can say a few words about some campus construction issues- putting in new sidewalks and replacing the old concrete ones with bricks.
As you may know, I lived in Japan for about a year, and learned the great value of being able to walk places whenever I feel like it- it's a fairly serious complaint I have about the UNCC campus. So, I definitely had something to say to the cameraman about the situation (no cute female reporter to hit on this time, sadly). The part that got put on the 10 oclock, 11 oclock, and morning newscasts was how UNCC needs to imporve its looks in order to better compete with other NC University system schools. Which is true, if UNCC wants to step it up as a campus, they've gotta look the part.
Anyways, I did manage to see the last half of the segment on TV that night. Despite the camera's bright lights I suppose I looked good enough for my five seconds of fame. Anyways, it's a very surreal feeling looking at the TV, and seeing yourself staring right back at you. You should try it sometime.
