Before he was Barney on "How I met your Mother," he was "Doogie Howser, MD." And before that, Neil Patrick Harris was a contestant in an Optimist Club Oratorical Contest. In 1992, Harris was interviewed by Gary Bradley for the Optimist magazine. He shared his winning speech, and thoughts about participating in the New Mexico West Texas District event.
