"Was he Optimus Prime?"

NO. He was Megatron.

Interesting timing on the Trivial Pursuit question about golfer Casey Martin. His professional golf career didn't pan out all that successfully, and he's since leaving the PGA tour, he's spent the past few years as the golf coach at the University of Oregon. However, he did qualify to the play in this year's US Open, which starts this Thursday at The Olympic Club (located in San Francisco, of all cities). And he will be riding his cart.

Hearing Biggio pronounced repeatedly as Biggie Oh made me think of this podcast.

I think you mispronounced one of the magazine titles in which of these are real magazines. Crappie World is about fishing. If crappie is spelled like this, you pronounce it as Croppie.
