The guest contestant on the "Not My Job" segment of Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is Allen Page. If you don't know the name, he's a very interesting fellow. Page had a long and successful career as a tough defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings, becoming only one of two defensive players ever named league MVP and eventually getting elected into the Hall of Fame. But his work after retiring from football even more impressive -- not just as the first black to be on the Minnesota Supreme Court, but serving on the court for 22 years. He has a charming talk about it all with host Peter Sagal before a particularly enthusiastic crowd which, though the show is based in Chicago, appears to have hit the road this week to take place in Minnesota.
By the way, for the second question in the quiz, the correct answer not only surprises Page but also the audience
-- in fact, when host Sagal gives the answer he adds in an almost-bewildered "Who knew??!" I raised my hand. Indeed, if you've followed my articles from the days on the Huffington Post before even this site began, I actually wrote about it here, back in 2011. See! Read these pages closely, and you too may have a chance to answer obscure question properly and win theoretical prizes!
