Yes. Better than Vince Vaughn, Christian Slater, Jimmy Kimmel....even Sir Charles. I was riveted when she was in the booth explaining how different it is for her to watch a game than the guys in the booth. Jaws follows probably 14 different things at once, but when she explained that she rarely ever takes her eyes of her husband it was something I hadn't thought about. It made me think (shocking I know) about how many different ways, different people watch a Sporting Event and especially something as complex a game as Football.
Yes, she was also promoting her book, but this time her promo was actually relevant. It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.....it's not some cheesy movie, it's a promo for a late night talk show, it's not a promo for Desperate Housewives, and it's not "whatever Christian Slater was in the booth for". It was a great interview and the only other one that comes close was the Spike Lee appearance for the first game back in New Orleans after Katrina.
Deanna was so good she even got Tony to say that she's better than him in the booth! I don't think anyone's ever gotten those words to come out of his mouth. I someone erased the rest of her appearance, but here's the outro.
Also, what's with Tony Kornheiser and talking about women with every guest? He almost posed a Who Would You Do? question to James Denton last year, and has said "Kelly Ripa is hot" and "She smells better than I do" this year.
