However, I quickly became a fan because he treated me so well.
Pete really wanted to learn how to do the self-levitation that David Blaine made famous during his first TV special years ago. I told him I couldn’t reveal the secret, but when he hired me for a second show, I gave him a VHS tape teaching the trick.
A couple of weeks later, I got a call to do a third show for yet another group of recruits. After my show, I took my bow, and was about to exit the stage when Pete said he wanted to do a trick. Sure enough, he had been practicing.
When he levitated, to say the football recruits were blown away, is an understatement.
Well, after that, I became a Pete Carroll fan, and did well betting on USC. Had I been in Vegas, I would’ve bet on The Seahawks too!
I’m really happy for Pete’s success, he’s a good dude. Enjoy this old picture I took with him, and check out the letter he wrote, especially the P.S.!
