The Cutting Room Floor & Carson Daly

So, as those of you who tuned in to Amazing Sports Stories last night already know, 95% of my part was left on the cutting room floor. You may have caught glimpses of me in the dugout or on second base behind "Jackie," but my sweet base-hit will have to wait for the outtakes on the Special Edition DVD ;) Oh well, I got to be out in the sun for two days, got paid, met some cool people, got a credit, and got to hit live pitching -- so it was still worth it!

A friend of mine, JD, invited me to attend a taping of "Last Call with Carson Daly" over at the NBC lot in Burbank this evening since his friends' band, Flo-bots, was playing -- their national TV debut, actually. I've never been to one of these tapings (this was actually 2 since they taped two shows in about 2 hours), but it was really a lot of fun. I don't watch much late night TV as it usually seems boring, but it was a lot better in person. The guests were Joshua Gomez from Chuck and Lonny Ross from 30 Rock, who was quite amusing. The Flo-bots really rocked and I suspect you'll be hearing more about them in the future. You can check them out on the Tuesday night, May 20th Last Call show if you're interested.


  1. "I can tie a knot in a cherry stem
    I can tell you about Leif Ericson
    I know all the words to "De Colores"
    And "I'm Proud to be an American..."

    That Flobots song "Handlebars" is actually in pretty regular rotation on Q101. It's a pretty catchy tune!

  2. That show is kinda cheesey anyway. The fact that they cut you is further proof that they don't know what the hell they are doing. I agree with Gregory R. Zimmerman... the Flo-bots farking rock!!
