I'm sure you are correct! I was looking for an excuse not to take video. :P

I'm sure Tony's attitude is totally different with fans than it is with reporters who ask dumb questions. (Just don't ask him any dumb questions or he's apt to "help" you out of the truck) ;) :lol: :lol:

This interview with Jenna Fryer "gone wrong" is classic Tony (about 1:33 minutes in).

I remember the interview when it was live. I can see Tony's point and I just noticed something I'd never paid attention to before. He is surrounded in a small area by media and then he has someone who is asking the same question over and over. Where was her journalism protocal? Does anyone think Walter Cronkite asked stupid question? I doubt it and I don't ever remember him shoving anyone against the wall for an answer. He was one of the most responsible journalist we could count on. Sad thing today is anyone can grab a note pad and jot down a few lines and fill it in later. They are also great at trying to embarrass the person they are interviewing.

Yup. That's why I shared it with all of you. I know everyone here admires him and eventually, I hope you all get your chance!

Wow, that was sad. Good for him in knocking her down a notch but wow! Marty has great questions because he takes the time to do research and he seems to care about the sport. Trust me, I already know what I'm going to ask. I feel confident it's the right thing to say. ;) If I can remember it that is.

Yes, think of a few things you want to say to him and just know he has such a good sense of humor that he will put you somewhat at ease. Savor your time with him....

Awww, thanks, but... there is another post in the NASCAR & Racing forum that explains exactly what happened, or what didn't happen actually. It's titled BIG DISAPPOINTMENT... check it out and you'll see.
