That was COOL

I almost feel famous!

I was watching FOX & Friends, First Edition this morning. As I was fumbling with the coffee pot at my friends house I hear "blog" and "blogging" on TV. Well, shit...the coffee can wait.

Who are they interviewing but Hugh Hewitt. They were talking about his book and how bloggers do such a good job of fact checking - you know the stuff we've known for years. Then he says that his favorite MilBlogger is Mudville Gazette. Talks about what a great job he's doing over there (again, stuff we already know) and the hosts are scrambling to write down the website! I was so flippin' proud. I'm jumping around saying.."That's my friend!" That's Grayhawk!"

My friends stood there with mouths ajar. They were looking at each other than looking at me. Now, I'm not sure if there were just surprised to see that I wasn't feeding them a line of crap about blogging or it was the fact that I was dancing around their living room in my Buc's jammies that early in the morning, but that doesn't really matter.

I was just so proud.

I know - I'm easily amused.

I missed the interview - but they did mention it again later. Looks like at least one of them actually went and checked out the site. I don't know the names on that show... but one of the guys said he thought it wwas a great site! And I'm sitting there thinking ... how cool is that.

Do they have a website for that show? If so, I hope they put the link up there. Cause most people just won't remember the name when they finally get to a computer and go to surf.
