If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why Flying because it would make travelling a whole lot easier.

If you could trade jobs with anybody alive right now, who would it be and why? Any of the commentators of the College GameDay (College Football) show because it looks like they genuinely enjoy hosting the show and also embrace the unique and exciting atmosphere at all the different colleges they visit.
