You may remember Tim Hammer's -- (or should I say, a "blogger who calls himself Tim Hammer"?) recent post on "American Gladiators": "There are no cell phones, cameras, iPods or knives allowed inside [the arena]. These rules not only got in the way of my plans of shanking a Gladiator while listening to my workout mix on shuffle but also required us to walk all the way back to our car to drop off our cell phones before entering the lot....This time around there's water. Original Gladiators: no water. New Gladiators: water."

Well, NPR remembered it too, and had Touré and Alison Stewart of the Bryant Park Project interview Tim about his experiences this morning. Listen below or link to the website here.
