On this week’s ‘Not My Job’ segment of the NPR quiz show Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, the guest is Elena Meyers Taylor, the most-decorated Bobsledder in U.S. Olympic history, with five medals – including two in the most recent Games. With charming openness, she answers a lot of questions from host Peter Sagal (and curious panelist Alzo Slade) about Bobsledding, including confirming why I say it’s a sport that keeps my Olympic hopes alive, explaining that after brakemen get in the sled, they do absolutely nothing. And she tells a very funny story about trying to get a “Bronze medal discount” from Wendy’s. (By the way, if Wendy's was really smart, they'd make her a spokesperson and do ads with her.)
This the full Wait, Wait… broadcast, but you can jump directly to the “Not My Job” segment, it starts around the 18:30 mark.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
