Description
Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a college that upgraded its image, Not My Job about people who are the boss, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will ESPN do to stay the leader in sports?
Notes
The third choice for each of the Not My Job questions was Bruce Springsteen, who's nickname is "The Boss". Tony Danza actually answered the third question with Bruce Springsteen, which was not correct. Also, the CEO of Cisco Systems is actually John Chambers, not Sandy Lerner as noted as the correct answer for the second Not My Job question. Sandy Lerner is one of Cisco's co-founders, but was never the CEO for Cisco.
