Today I had the pleasure of meeting some people at Newsday's Melville offices. Unfortunately it was not for a job interview but rather a discussion about the Summer of '69 .
While it was no Summer of 42 the interviewer was also no Jennifer O'Neill and I am certainly not Hermie. I better not get started - I loved that movie. I also know some things about the lovely star, Ms. O'Neill but I refuse to tarnish her reputation here on the web so you'll have to ask me in person or confidence if interested.
Anyway I was at Newsday today for a short but enjoyable talk about my experiences for that summer and in particular how they related to the Mets. The interview lasted a whopping 15 minutes at most and was done with three video cameras running. Afterward they took a series of still photos. I wish I had put on more make-up but...
The written article about that summer will be in Newsday some time late June I believe and the videos, there were many others scheduled, will be available on the web around the same time or aired on News 12.
I don't expect too much of my stuff to appear on either place so I will have my own piece ready for prime time and post it then.
Next stop Hollywood, or with my luck Bollywood.
