    Have you ever been on tv? Ever been interviewed? Or you just happened to be there at the right time? Anything?

    Nope, I hope I never am...fifteen minutes of fame is entirely overrated.

    I was interviewed along with loads of other people once at the San Francisco zoo when they where unavailing the new gorilla exhibit. In the actual report they only showed three people and I didn’t make the cut.

    I have a couple of times, but I was just sort of "in the background".

    This wasn't anything big, but my High School band played at half time for a College game that was televised. Other than that, there's only the times where our band was on the local channel, half time shows and our concerts.

    This one time they were doing interviews outside my high school for the local news, and I walked behind one of the interviewees. That's basically it.

    I'm on TV all the time. Happens when cameras take shots of the crowd and I happen to be in the same section.

    I was also on TV when Bill Clinton ate at the restaurant I managed a few years ago.

    i was on the news telling David Prowse off once. I didn't realize it till the next day at school, my teacher was asking me why i was telling of that man. I asked him how he knew about it and he said it was on the nightly news.

    I was interviewed by ESPN when Indiana went to the Final Four, back in 2000. That's about it.

    I went to a taping of both David Letterman and Conan O'Brien where I sat in the audience for both shows so I was probably on for like one second for each show. Never did see either of them on tv that nite.

    I got interviewed at an airport for flight delays once. I said one memorable thing, "I've been here for 6 hours. Delays f*cking suck."

    Yeah. A few times. The only "nationwide" thing was when I was at a taping of "Hard Rock Live" for VH1. Sammy Hagar was performing, and had backstage passes and such. I was in the 1st row, and in most of the shots they aired on VH1.
