Rich Ackerman goes on a date

"Live with Regis and Kelly" just showed highlights of Rich Ackerman's date Wednesday night, featuring steak, hockey and drinks.

It turns out that Ackerman can be pretty smooth (who knew?) and that he does not eat vegetables.

(What is it with sports broadcasters and food quirks? Al Michaels also doesn't eat vegetables. Ian Eagle doesn't eat fruit. Michael Kay doesn't eat condiments. I eat anything and everything. Print journalists aren't picky.)

"It was tough with the cameras on," Ackerman wrote in an email this a.m. after I praised him for his suaveness. "A lot easier when they weren't."
