    Love that guy. He did a good job too. That's a position a lot of athletes end up looking forced and awkward in, but he was relaxed and showed real personality.

    I know geography probably isn't overly stressed in education, but what about that kid thinking New Jersey was the smallest state?

    Regarding New Jersey - all of those North Eastern States are small - he eventually tossed out Rhode Island, but I would guess that he may never have been outside of the South, so knowing the smallest among the veritable myriad of Northeastern states isn't an automatic understanding. He probably heard it in a high school General Science class but forgot which one. You don't learn about that in places like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Botany, Psychology, English or Literature, etc.. Only in a Geography or possibly a history course, depending on the instructor.

    And yes, Patric Young did a very good job at that.

    I've only seen a few of these videos by Patrick Young, but he's really good at this for a student journalist - not just for "student athlete" - but any student. That dude has got a career in TV reporting haha.

    He's got to be way up their for being the best "ambassadors" for sports programs that we've had on campus.

    I want to know how someone can remember the address in Finding Nemo. :ninja:

    The kid that guessed New Jersey obviously didn't come off as a dummy, he was just randomly guessing NE states at that point because he wasn't really sure which was the smallest.

    I'm sure if someone stopped me for some "on-camera" random trivia I'd have lots of stupid/incorrect answers to provide.

    I wasn't trying to suggest the NJ student is dumb or anything. Geography is one of those subjects that can make even the most inteligent, well educated seem ignorant. I just find it funny to see where people's minds go when asked a question like that. I agree he was thinking "one of those northeastern states" or something like that. I just figured he would have picked one of the ones northeast of NY.

    I was more impressed he knew Alaska was the biggest state.

    Also calling Will "Frenchie" lol.

    That's because they repeat it like 500 times in the movie.

    While true, you still had to have watched it pretty recently to be able to remember it...

    Also, thought it was funny how Patric was trying to help the pretty blonde girl with the olympic ring colors by lip syncing the word black until she finally got it...

    Pat obviously has a little work to do (I think he said "OK" about a thousand times), but he's got a natural charisma and sense of humor that are hard to teach, and his instincts are really good (I got a kick out of him creepily leaning in closer and closer to the kid struggling with the NBA teams). He definitely has a future in TV if he wants one.
