Date with Rev. Smith awkward at best

Monday, April 11th, 2005 - 9:55 am PDT

The Win a Date with Rev. Smith contest concluded Saturday night with Smith accompanying Terry Hainsworth of Fremont, CA, on a night on the town including a visit to the local public library, a game of table tennis at the YMCA, and dinner at Arby’s. Asked how the date went, randomly-selected winner Hainsworth said that Smith seemed “uncomfortable and a bit standoffish” most of the night, and that their conversations were “stilted at best”. “I guess I just never expected that any, you know, dudes would enter the contest, much less win,” admitted Smith. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that. God, I hope I didn’t seem uncomfortable and standoffish the whole time.” Added Smith: “You don’t think he expect me to put out, do you?”
