CNN set up for the interview at Seoul stadium

More media action for the FLH team today, with CNN whisking the two of us off to Seoul stadium for an on-camera chat with host Tim Lister. Unfortunately, yet again we couldn’t get into the stadium, so the producer decided that we’d film on the grass in front of it.

Would it become a battle of the acronyms?

Watch the full interview with Phil, Chris and The Ball outside the stadium in Seoul.

A sight guaranteed to make me nervous
The view we faced, looking strangely tame now it’s been and gone

In fact it turned out to be the most relaxed interview I’ve experienced on this bizarre trip of ours – Tim Lister, Phil and myself lounging about on the grass in front of the stadium, shooting the breeze about the trip, the idea of the Ball and the Irish and England teams’ prospects. I could get used to this life. Well, maybe…

Another interview – this time with a Korean language national daily paper – scheduled for tomorrow. If there’s no rest for the wicked, how bad must we be?
