Congrats To A Fellow North Texan!

Nancy O'Dell interviewing Carly Patterson, Copyright Frank Heinz, Click for double-sized image in new window Last night, I mentioned one of my co-workers is in Athens, covering the Olympics for NBC Web sites. I added that I would see if I could arrange a “day after” interview with Carly Patterson, the winner of the gold medal in the all-around gymnastics competition. I added, “Don’t hold your breath…”

Well, my co-worker has interviewed some boxers, but others are not on the list. Here, however, is the next best thing … co-worker Frank Heinz has graciously allowed me to use an image he snapped of Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell interviewing America’s “new Olympic darling” from Allen, Texas.
