Tim Russert: Worse Actor Than Jared Dudley?
A Virginia Tech student who was somehow involved with that Defend the Cassell video I linked to last week recently checked in. Rather than attempting to Defend the Video, said student pointed me to this Meet the Press tribute, featuring Tim Russert and the Boston College Eagles. I listened to the audio of the whole thing, but I had to stare at my empty blog window while listening to the last few minutes. Couldn't take it any more.
As a native Western New Yorker, I'll always have a soft spot in my soul for Russert. I even confronted about him about WNY when I saw him in Cleveland Park once; he seemed less happy to see me than I was to see him, but he was friendly enough. Anyhow, the point is, Tim Russert is great at what he does, and less great at starring in spoofs of what he does, featuring basketball players and his son. Jared Dudley delivered an OK performance, which, compared to his co-stars, made him appear somewhere between Olivier and Brando. Although when ACC BasketBlog (whose authors consistently ignore my e-mails) linked to the video last week, they called it "excellent work," and a BC blogger used the word "hilarity" in conjunction with the video, so maybe I'm wrong again.
