TRANSCRIPT

MICHAEL CHIKLIS OF "AMERICAN
HORROR STORY" JOINING ME ON THE
PHONE.
WERE YOU AT THE GAME?
>> I SURE WAS, RICH.
>> WHAT WAS IT LIKE FOR YOU?
>> WELL, FIRST OF ALL, YOU CAN
PROBABLY HEAR IT IN MY VOICE.
>> YEAH.
>> THAT I HAVE NOTHING LEFT.
THAT WAS TRULY ONE OF THE MOST
INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCES OF MY
LIFE TO WITNESS THAT.
I HAVE BEEN TO A LOT OF GREAT
GAMES IN MY LIFE.
I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF GREAT
THINGS BUT THAT WAS JUST -- IT
WAS SOMETHING THAT I WILL NEVER
FORGET IN MY LIFE AND I WAS WITH
MY WIFE AND A BUNCH OF GREAT
FRIENDS.
ALL THE GUYS FROM FX THAT HAD
TAKEN ME OVER THE YEARS TO, YOU
KNOW, ALL OF THE PATRIOTS SUPER
BOWL GAMES AND, YOU KNOW, I
DON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING RIVALING
THIS EXPERIENCE.
AND THE THING THAT EVEN IF THEY
HAD -- IF THEY HAD GIVEN THE
BALL TO LYNCH AND THEY HAD WON,
I WOULD BE SAYING THAT WAS THE
MOST INCREDIBLE SUPER BOWL I'VE
EVER SEEN.
JUST THE TWISTS AND TURN --S ITS
TOOK -- TURNS, IT WAS EXTROORD
TO WATCH.
>> YEAH, THE WAY THAT THE
DEFENSES CAME OUT, THE FIRST
SCORELESS SUPER BOWL SINCE THE
SUPER BOWL, THE PATRIOTS BEAT
THE EAGLES IN JACKSONVILLE.
SO IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE
WE HAVE HAD A SCORELESS FIRST
QUARTER.
THEN 28 POINTS IN THE SECOND
QUARTER.
BACK AND FORTH.
THAT SAID, MICHAEL, WHAT DID YOU
THINK AT THE VERY END WHEN
JERMAINE KEARSE HAD THAT
JUGGLING CATCH?
DID YOU HAVE THE SINKING
FEELING?
>> I WAS THERE IN THE SAME SEATS
IN ARIZONA WHEN THE GIANTS HAD
THAT -- YOU KNOW, CIRCUS CATCH.
AND IT WAS DEJA VU.
I WAS JUST LIKE, OH, MY GOD, NO.
THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING AGAIN.
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S GOING TO
HAPPEN AGAIN.
AND ALL OF OUR HEARTS SUNK AND
THE OTHER THING I SHOULD SAY, IT
WAS PROBABLY 70/30 IN TERMS OF
THE STANDS IN TERMS OF THE RATIO
OF SEAHAWKS FANS TO PATRIOTS
FANS.
SO WE WERE IN A SEA OF SEAHAWKS
FANS.
SO IT WAS JUST LIKE EIGHT OF US
AND 100 OF THEM AROUND US.
SO WE WERE GETTING DROWNED OUT
AND WE WERE HEARTBROKEN.
AND TO SEE -- TO SEE BUTLER CUT
OFF THE ROUTE, YOU KNOW, IN MY
LIFE, I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT
THEY RAN THAT PLAY.
I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED.
I JUST CANNOT -- HAD TO HAPPEN
JUST AS IT DID.
I WILL NEVER FORGET THIS IN MY
LIFE.
I THINK THAT EVERYBODY IS
FEELING THIS WAY.
YOU KNOW, I NEVER SAW SO MANY --
LIKE I HEARD THIS INCREDIBLE
TECH TRONIC SOUND AND IT WAS THE
SOUND OF ABOUT 3.5 MILLION
SEAHAWKS FANS' HEARTS BREAKING
SIMULTANEOUSLY.
IT WAS JUST -- OH, I'M SORRY.
I'M NOT GLOATING AT ALL.
>> NO, I KNOW.
>> I FEEL TERRIBLE FOR THEM.
>> MICHAEL CHIKLIS JOINING ME
RIGHT NOW.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ENERGY IN A
STADIUM SWITCH QUITE LIKE THAT.
I MEAN, I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE AS
YOU SAID TO BE AT -- TO BE
COVERING, BUT I NEVER HAVE SEEN
IN ANY SPORT THAT I HAVE BEEN
AT.
ANY MOMENT WHERE THE CULMINATION
OF A CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT IS
CLEARLY ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE AND
THAT SENSATION THAT MOST OF THE
FANS THOUGHT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN
FOR THEIR TEAM THEN WENT AND
SWITCHED TO THE OTHER TEAM.
IN A SPLIT SECOND, I HAVE NEVER
SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT,
MICHAEL.
>> RICH, I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU,
IF I READ THAT IN A SCRIPT,
HOLLYWOOD SCRIPT, I'D PASS.
I'D GO, OH -- THAT WOULDN'T
HAPPEN.
COME ON.
>> RIGHT.
>> YOU KNOW, BUT BECAUSE IT DID
AND IT WAS REAL AND IT HAPPENED
IN FRONT OF ME, I JUST WOULDN'T
HAVE BELIEVED IT.
IT WAS SOMETHING SO SPECIAL.
AND WE CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT
IT.
THE NEXT DAY WE'RE ALL JUST
SPINNING AROUND AND I TEXTED TOM
LAST NIGHT AND HE WAS OUT OF HIS
MIND EXCITED.
HE WROTE BACK TO ME A FEW TIMES
AND WHICH I CAN'T BELIEVE IN ALL
THE MIDST OF ALL THAT HE TOOK
THE TIME TO WRITE ME BACK.
IT WAS FANTASTIC.
>> IN TERMS OF A SCRIPT, COULD
IT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY GEORGE
R.R. MARTIN OF "GAME OF THRONES"
FAME YOU RAN INTO, IS THAT TRUE?
>> WE'RE WALKING INTO THE
STADIUM, IT'S HARD TO MISS HIM,
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
>> HE'S DRESSED IN BLACK.
>> HE LOOKED LIKE A SAILOR.
HE NEEDED THE CORNCOB PIPE AND
THAT WAS IT.
I WAS LIKE, OH, MY GOD, I WALK
OVER TO HIM AND HE SAYS TO ME,
HEY, WE HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON
THAT I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO TELL
YOU.
THE FIRST THING I EVER MADE
MONEY AS A WRITER -- A PUBLISHED
WRITER WAS WRITING SCENE
DIALOGUE FOR THE ORIGINAL MARVEL
COMICS.
I WAS LIKE, YOU'RE KIDDING ME.
HE GOES, SO HEY, I WROTE YOUR
VOICE.
AND HE GAVE ME A HUG AND WE TOOK
SOME PICTURES TOGETHER.
SO I SAID TO HIM, SO YOU'RE
ROOTING FOR NEW ENGLAND, RIGHT?
HE SAID SEAHAWKS.
I SAID SEE YOU LATER.
>> THAT WAS IT?
HE TAPPED OUT.
I DON'T THINK HE'S A PATRIOT
FAN.
I THINK HE'S BEEN QUITE ON
RECORD ABOUT THAT.
>> I DIDN'T KNOW.
HEY, LISTEN, I SAID THAT'S OKAY.
IT'S ALL RIGHT.
I'LL LET YOU GET AWAY WITH THAT
ONE.
>> I THINK HE'D EQUATE BELICHICK
WITH A WHITE WALKER, IF I'M NOT
MISTAKEN.
>> HE CALLED THEM THE LANNISTERS
BEFORE.
>> DID HE REALLY?
>> YEAH.
>> OH, MAN.
>> YEAH.
>> I DIDN'T KNOW THAT.
>> LIKE TYWAN.
>> I WOULD HAVE HAD A DIFFERENT
ATTITUDE WITH HIM IF I HAD KNOWN
THAT.
>> THEM'S FIGHTING WORDS FOR A
PATRIOT FAN.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN, MICHAEL.
CONGRATULATIONS.
I CAN HEAR IT IN YOUR VOICE
ABOUT, YOU KNOW, WHAT IT MEANS
TO YOU AND THE FACT THAT YOU
WERE THERE WITH SPECIAL FRIENDS
AND PEOPLE.
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU FOR THAT.
>> THANKS SO MUCH.
I'LL TALK TO YOU SOON.
>> THAT'S MICHAEL CHIKLIS.
