Shaq To The Future

According to Ms. Falk:

My Moment of Fame on NPR

As a contestant on Ask Me Another, I joined an elite group of trivia-loving competitors.

I went head-to-head with my daughter Rebecca in a battle of the wits on my favorite radio show.

It was seven minutes of fame and butterflies-in-the-stomach-inducing glory in front of an audience of 200 envious bar patrons, each one wanting my place in the spotlight.

The activity was wordplay and involved Shaquille (Shaq) O'Neal.

How did I do?

Well enough that members of the audience cheered "Go, Janet!"

Listen to the segment starting at minute 6:00 -- or enjoy the entire show, which was broadcast on Saturday, April 11 at 3:00 pm in New York City.

Please let me know if you figure out one of the questions I did not get. It is easier when you're not in front of a microphone, of course.

Shaqtastic job Ms. Falk and Ms. Rindler!
