MUST WATCH: The Webbys, Spike Lee and the Year in Sports
The great team over at Grantland asked me to put together a video covering the Year in Sports online for the Webby Awards. Not just the big moments in games, but the moments that took off on the Internet. I happen to have two rules in life:
- Be kind to others.
- When Bill Simmons' Grantland calls and asks for a video covering the Year in Sports online for the Webby Awards - and not just the big moments in games, but the moments that took off on the Internet - you say yes.
So I made one. Kindly.
What I did not know is that my video would be played on a giant floating screen, amidst a complex framework of pipes and bubbling erlenmeyer flask. I also did not know Spike Lee would introduce the video, but I gotta be honest, it’s the really huge, bubbling erlenmeyer flask that surprised me. [SCIENCE!!!]
Best part is, if you turn the volume on your computer all the way up, and listen really, very closely, in a room that has little to no distraction whatsoever, you can hear one laugh.
Hope you watch and enjoy. Thanks to Grantland for the opportunity, and check out their incredible site here.
