I'm not a football fan, but this was a great interview. So far, my favorite substitute for Leonard.

What's with the sports show on WNYC? This is what we're all trying to avoid! Yikes!

This is a great idea for a story, considering how much the modern NF--and pro sports in general--have changed. Unfortunately, I think Alan Alda is a little long in the tooth to play Stefan!
