City Paper is not for tourists
As host Dave Feldman spoke in the bowels of Cowboys Stadium, you could see Comcast sportscaster Kelli Johnson over his shoulder interviewing Skins receiver Santana Moss down the hall. Johnson and Moss stood more or less eye to eye just outside an entrance to the team’s locker room.
Johnson was clearly barefoot while speaking to Moss, who was shoed.
Later on in the Fox-5 show, you could see Johnson setting up for another interview with an unrecognizable but larger Redskin, and she had put her shoes back on.
Johnson has mentioned before that at least one Redskins player isn’t man enough to talk to her unless she removes her shoes before they start rolling tape.
That’s obnoxious enough a demand on dry land. But outside a locker room, a dank setting where fungus is always among us?
That’s plain nasty.
I doubt in his decades as a Redskins reporter Frank Herzog, a tall drink of water himself, ever had to take his shoes off to do his job.
