This feature—a question-and-answer session with a person from sports/entertainment/politics/whatever—will appear every week on jeffpearlman.com. If you have any suggestions/ideas for people to speak with, hit me up at anngold22@gmail.com. I’m listening. Oh, and for the full categorization of every Quaz, click here.

#415 THE QUAZ

Sammy Burke

I was attending a Blind Melon concert a few months ago. There was an opening act—the John McCloy Band. I wondered what it’s like to be a seasoned bass player/math teacher jamming away in a small Southern California club. So I asked.

#414 THE QUAZ

Rich O’Malley

His goal was to attend a game at every Major League Baseball, National Football League, National Hockey League and National Basketball Association stadium—then chronicle the experience. Thanks to heart, grit, drive and Poke Nachos, the mission was accomplished.

#413 THE QUAZ

Barry Pollock

This reenactment fighter dons 40 pounds of armor made from leather and steel, then kicks ass on the battlefield. Just please don’t compare him to Paul Rudd in “Role Models.”

#412 THE QUAZ

Dave Tollefson

The two-time Super Bowl champion went from Home Depot and Division II football to twice toppling Ton Brady on the NFL’s biggest stage. He also was teammates with Omar Gaither—and they can’t take that away from him.

#411 THE QUAZ

Paul Sedacca

The world’s greatest Newark, Del.-based Flamenco guitarist (with a love of banjo, Kiss and the Stone Balloon) collaborates with his wife to bring music to the people. Which helps explain why he always seems so damn happy.

#410 THE QUAZ

Kaira Rouda

While this prolific best-selling author is married to a United States congressman, she spends much of her time speaking with Jane, David, Betsy and the other characters who fill her pages—and her mind.
