Leading up to this morning, I had about 5 separate nightmares. A few involved not being able to get there in time (I couldn't find my shoes in one dream) and several others involved John asking me a question and me just completely blanking.
Thankfully, it went so much better than expected. Like, a million times better. John said it was the best Pick 3 yet. And Cheryl Waters walked in at the end and she said she liked my picks. (Also, amazingly, I had very little OMG-I'm-talking-to-John-Richards starstruck-ness. I mean, during the last pledge drive, I found myself completely frozen when he walked into the kitchen as I was filling my Nalgene. But today--no fear!)
The archived audio is up here. Just choose April 24th at 8 AM. You'll get the tail end of a song before my part starts.
Special thanks to Vijay and Joe who emailed John during the segment. (John: "Some guy tells me that I should ask you for a small glass of water?") And many of you asked about my "fan mail" that John mentioned. Let's just say that my picks may have convinced someone named Dan in Kansas to move to Seattle! (Note to Dan: Please don't move here on my account. But I am pretty positive Seattle would be a step up from where you live now!)
Wow. What an awesome experience.
