NBC Chicago

Today was funny…

NBC got a hold of KP and myself and asked if we wanted to do an interview regarding the upcoming BMX events being hosted here in Chicago. It was too cold to ride today so of course we said “Lets Dew This!”…hehe

So we pedaled down to the studio downtown. Upon arrival we were outsiders looking in…

Then we met up with lead sports anchor Paula Faris 

Paula questioned our credibility and said we didn’t look tough enough… (take #2) 

We did some on camera interviews and about 20 seconds of riding (security guards were looming despite the cameras). Soon after we met the lead anchors and entire channel 5 news team…

Anchorman quotes were a flyin’ 

Carol and everyone at NBC Chicago was stoked on BMX which was unexpected and awesome. They were even stoked enough on our lackluster performance that they awarded us each an Emmy (the Nora Cup of the television industry)…

I held back tears during my acceptance speech so KP took the reigns…

Aaaahhhh show business….  

It was in all seriousness a pretty fun day. I love how cool people are behind the scenes. Thanks NBC Chicago for having us. 

Here is a little web blurb they put together:

hahahaha…

This is also the studio where they film Jerry Springer. I hope to check that out next time and will be sure to report back to you.  Maybe that’ll bring back some memories for Mr. Degroot? We’ll see…

Love,

Brian
