lines of the day – ‘These wines are like 2 Golden Retrievers, ones a couple of years older. One chilling on the floor and the other one trying too hard, constantly bringing the ball back etc’ and ‘I know more about baseball than anyone in the world’

Absolutely classic episode with a good guest and loads of sports trivia. (For example ‘Jerome Bettis is the biggest choker in the history of sports’)

    Good episode, an understated guest but does seem quite knowledgable.

    Good question of the day – I am paid to be a respiratory therapist in a very busy pediatric emergency room. I do love my job and look forward to going to work

    I am a reserve officer assigned to Criminal Investigations and assist by working the pawn shop detail. I also love doing that assignment.

    I am very lucky compared to many folks I know.

    If I could have a dream job, I think it would be a play by play announcer for my Texas Rangers.

    Enjoyed the episode.

    It’s a great accent – very smooth. Love it!

    I did an international MBA at Univ of S. Carolina so came over to Europe for that and never left. How’s life in Florida?

    I get paid to be a computer Architect. That means I say what runs on what machines and how the whole mess fits together to make a system that does something. But what I love to do is to fly. I got my private pilots license a few years ago and can fly a single engine Cessna 172. However I would not want to be a professional or commercial pilot.

    Hey Jimmy and Gary

    Great show, I love the idea of the guest just bringing some bargain wine they found and liked rather than raiding the shelves of Wine Library. Gary I agree with your comments about spain – I tend to think of it as a place that’s a bit lost (especailly in the Asian market).

    QOTD: I’m a teacher and love it. But things I like more would include fishing and wine…

    Cheers

    Hey Jimmy and Gary!

    Great to see a Vayniak on the show! I think Gary was impressed with your tasting notes, I certainly was! It must be really nerve wracking saying anything when you’re actually sitting there in front of the camera with Gary!

    QOTD: I used to run a non-profit social enterprise, now I’m a commodities trader. I’d love to run a restaurant similar to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen (and to develop a special interaction between kitchen and dining room, encourage experimentation on both sides and expand palates).

    Avi, that’s awesome. I bet it’s freakin awesome to fly a plane!
