Today's guest contestant on the 'Not My Job' segment of the NPR game quiz show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is relief pitcher for the World Series-winning Washington Nationals, Sean Doolittle. The interview with host Peter Sagal is extremely pleasant, though a pretty straight-forward sports conversation -- however it takes a fun, albeit slight diversion when talking about "walk-up songs," and has several amusing interruptions by Paula Poundstone who clearly is not a sports follower.
