Episode 36: Joel Cheats at Reds Trivia

Joel concentrates to remember the answer to the question he already heardThe Crack Technical Staff and I had just settled in to record the Reds press conference at the main stage at Redsfest 2006. We had our seats, our $7 soda, and plans to stay off our feet for a half hour while I decided whether I was brave enough to raise my hand for one of the microphones to ask Wayne Krivksky, “I can't make any sense of the moves you've made so far; could you please explain your vision for the team?” when the phone rang.

It was Joel. He and OBC were going to be contestants in the trivia contest in the Reds Hall of Fame exhibit, and we needed to get down there right away.

Name that Red: Chris WelshSo we missed Kriv-dawg telling the world that he'd be filing a grievance about his vicious hornswaggling at the hands of Jim Bowden, and instead recorded the trivia contest. I also ended up taking several photos with Joel's camera, in case you're wondering why Joel's usually excellent photos pretty much suck for this particular occasion.

Anyway, here it is. I titled this post “Joel Cheats at Reds Trivia,” because Joel didn't make any secret of the fact that he'd heard the majority of the questions the previous time they played the game. That's the privilege of the person who hangs out in the Reds HOF exhibit, I guess. At the end of the event, though, he hooked me up with George Grande to get the excellent “Hi, Hello, and Welcome to the Red Hot Broadcast” sound byte for me to use on the podcast, so really, we're all winners.

    Excellent. Now my gargantuan melon takes up half a page on RHM. That’s how I want to start my morning off. :(

    Thanks for the audio RHM. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but I’m sure I sound really smart. 😀

    I officially challenge Joel to a drinking contest to settle the score. No straws allowed, fyi.

    High noon.
