Gumbel will (did) interview Wallenda on HBO

    From the Buffalo News:

    Nik Wallenda, who is planning to walk a tightrope across Niagara Falls this summer, will be featured on “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” on HBO at 10 p.m. today, State Sen. George Maziarz, R-Newfane, and Assemblyman John Ceretto, R-Lewiston, said Monday.

    Wallenda will be interviewed about his upcoming walk and will talk about the history of his acrobat family, the Flying Wallendas, and the previous walks he has made.

    I don’t get HBO, so I looked online to see if I could watch the broadcast (it was shown last night). The HBO Real Sports web site has a brief clip, but that’s all I can find. Here are a couple of screenshots. I think the second one is particularly interesting. He was chatting with the interviewer as he was standing on a wire. He stood there and looked like he was as comfortable on a wire as I am on the ground.
