I really spoke too soon when I said Spygate was over, and you probably don’t care about this, but I thought I’d pass the info along anyway. Matt Walsh is going to sit down with Bryant Gumbel for an interview that will air tomorrow night.
REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL presents the first TV interview with one of the central figures in the New England Patriots videotaping scandal – former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh – when the show is seen FRIDAY, MAY 16 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
Correspondent Andrea Kremer interviews Walsh, who worked in the Patriots organization from 1997 to 2003. The videotaping came to light in September after the Patriots-Jets season opener in New Jersey, triggering a media firestorm. The Patriots and head coach Bill Belichick were subsequently disciplined by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
I guess it’s a big deal that HBO got the first interview with the former Patriots’ videotapper, but I don’t know what new things they can bring to light. This isn’t something I’m gone to postpone my Friday Night for.
