The phone rang. I answered. "Mr. C, this is Steve Spurrier. I'm sorry... how 'bout Saturday at four?" Great! Wait a minute... that was Steve Spurrier. No secretary. No assistant.
The door bell rang. It was the coach. By himself. No driver. No retinue.
We talked for an hour before he had to go.

This is the story of a television interview I did with Steve Spurrier. It was a fundraiser for public television featuring Florida Gator football. Steve had just been hired as head coach. One of the nicest, most self-effacing persons I have ever met. Just proves, you can't judge a book by the cover.
