In his interview, Joey said his greatest sports memory was Game 6 of the 2015 ALCS where the Royals beat the Blue Jays for the pennant.

If there’s one way to get me to cheer against you? It might just be that.

Meanwhile, in an unusual circumstance for a leader, Dana’s score went from 3,250 at the first break to 1,250 at the end of the opening round. Often, the leader finds a comfort zone after the opening interviews!
