This probably shouldn’t be news to any regular readers of this blog or anyone who has ever met me in my life. But yesterday at work, I got to take a little tour of the studios and had a colleage snap this photo:
So, the colors are pretty and my hair looks relatively good and those Shaq-sized chairs make me look teeny…. so I uploaded to Facebook. Obviously.
To my utter shock – I was met with some CONGRATULATORY NOTES/EMAILS/CALLS. Which really cracked me up. TNT is in real trouble if I’m the newest commentator.
I also received the expected response: playful ridicule. Here are some of my faves:
Terch: “Do you even know what NBA stands for?”
Joanna Duff: “You’d be great at color commentary! ‘Would you say these uniforms are more of a grape or aubergine?’”
PT: “Now that you’re in, if you ever need a correspondent …let me know. I could get some live interviews in the locker room. It wouldn’t even be like work for me!”
It’s clearly not happening.
So if you’re reading this, Charles Barkley – just to clear up any confusion: I am NOT coming for your job.
PS But if for some reason, you wanted to put me on TV… I will certainly learn something about Basketball. Trust.
