The guest contestant this week on the 'Not My Job' segment of the NPR game show, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is Charles Tillman. That may mean little to most people, but to me and those from Chicago he's beloved there, known as "Peanut," being one of the best NFL defensive backs of his time and a member of the Bears' great 1985 Super Bowl Team. And a wonderful guy too, a winner of the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for humanitarian efforts. His interview with host Peter Sagal is free-spirited, fun, wildly friendly and endearing. And with the Super Bowl tomorrow, I figured that this was the right time to post this.
