AIRED:

Game 1: Mr. Bong Way Wong - "Bull Fighter" (self-employed; his American home is in Berkeley, CA, but he is currently living in Europe; Bong Way "Billy" Wong is credited as being the first Chinese bullfighter. This Chinese-American man was born in Arizona and attended University of California at Berkeley. John said Mr. Wong holds a degree in civil engineering and was working for the "highway department in California" (CalTrans) and read the book of the life of a great matador and decided that was what he wanted to do. He is now a novillero in Madrid, Spain. A novillero is a bullfighter who is required to fight bulls less than four years of age. John said the great matador El Cordobes (aka Manuel Benitez) retired this week. Mr. Wong has killed about 20 or 30 bulls so far. His "sometimes" bullfighting nickname is "El Chino" which means "The Chinese," but John correctly predicted that "the Madrid public will pick it up." A biographical book, "El Chino," was written in 1990 by Allen Say.)

Game 2: Mrs. Cecilia Benner - "Makes Earplugs for Sleeping, Swimming, Etc." (self-employed; she and her husband produce and sell "Mack's Earplugs," which is owned by their company, McKeon Products, Inc.; the Benners invented and manufacture this efficient earplug; her husband is a bass player and she is a cello player; from Detroit, MI; a rare on-air reference is made to Gil Fates, when John states that Gil wanted these earplugs and wrote to Mrs. Benner; as of 2004, this company is still in existence)

Game 3: Andy Griffith (6/1/1926 - 7/3/2012) (as Mystery Guest)
