Let's get right to it:
*Last night, the good folks at EA set me up with a 1-on-1 interview with Tim Tebow. It lasted approximately 8 minutes.
*He was pleasant and gracious. He was exactly like you see him on TV. Entirely consistent.
*He had never heard of TimTeblog.com. (Much more on that later.)
*I asked him about the post-Alabama tears, I asked him a bit about his faith and I asked him about his family. (My pre-interview post yesterday was a bit of a tell about the questions I really did want to ask.)
I figured that if I could get in three questions covering Football, Faith and Family, that's as much as I could ask for from myself, given the time constraints.
(I had to spend the first 60 seconds stumbling through an explanation of what TimTeblog is -- needless to say, it is a lot easier to explain it to a fan or a talk-radio host than to the subject of the blog himself.)
*On the "Did-I-Sound/Act-Like-a-Jackass" scale, where "1" is "Frost/Nixon" and "10" is Chris Farley interviewing Paul McCartney on SNL, I'd put myself around a 5-ish. (Not horrible!)
I have a much longer piece about it that I'm still working on, because I want to relate the entire experience in greater detail. But, obviously, I had to provide an update.
