I know what I’ll be doing at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
I’ll be watching "E:60" on ESPN. That’s not a shameless plug for the network. I’ll be watching because the show features an interview with Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith.
For years, I’ve admired Smith’s ability on the field, but haven’t always admired everything else about him. But, for better or worse, I always have found Smith to be one of the most fascinating people I’ve encountered.
I’ve seen only a sample clip of the interview (and you can see it here), but it looks like it’s vintage Smith, complete with some talk about how he does good things off the field and how he’s mellowed. But watch the pause when the interviewer asks Smith what happened with Ken Lucas.
The pause alone makes me want to see the whole interview.
