SPRINGBOARD APPEARS ON THE 5 O'CLOCK NEWS
It is said that everyone eventually is honored with their very own 15 minutes of fame. Yesterday that honor literally landed on my doorstep thanks to a local deputy who was recently charged with an OWI after being found intoxicated, sitting in his personal vehicle with his engine idling, on my street. Justin Williams, a local Fox News reporter came knocking on my door and wanted to know how I felt about the story, and with camera rolling I offered my opinion to the best of my ability—through twitchy nerves no doubt. TV is not my gig, if you know what I mean. If only they would have let me put up a link to my HubPages. Wow, imagine the traffic I might have been able to reel in off of that.
For now I'm just trying to keep as low a profile as I possibly can. Surely there are people gawking in through my living room windows as we speak trying desperately to get a closer gander at a local celebrity. It might be difficult for me to trek out to my local McDonald's for my new favorite, Angus Mushroom & Swiss burger if I get hungry, so luckily I've got plenty of ramen noodles in the cupboard. That should do the trick at least until all the hype dies down. Besides, with writer's cramp from all those autographs I'll no doubt have to sign, I probably won't be able to even hold on to my burger.
In any event, here is the news clip from the story. Springboard in all his glory on a cold winter day, with snow falling in the backdrop, on the 5 o'clock news on Fox 6.
