Tonight at a youth group Christmas Party, we played a game similar to Charades called ‘Celebrities’. Everyone wrote down 10 names on slips of paper and then we mixed them all up together. Then the 6 of us divided into 2 teams. The goal was for 1 person from the team to make the rest of the their teammates guess as many celebrities in a minute by saying anything they wanted except for the celebrity’s name. Obviously, not everyone knows every celebrity, and so if the ‘caller’ picked up a slip of paper with a name they didn’t recognize, they could put it back in the bowl and move on to another name.
This worked okay for a while, but at the end of the game, the names that were left were the names that were consistently passed on by both teams. Not surprisingly, these names tended to be of the 10 that I had contributed. So, what celebrities did my teenagers not recognize?

I do love the selective stats in this article:
“Among all Major League left-handed relievers with at least 50.0 innings pitched in 2008, Lopez posted the fifth-lowest ERA (2.43) while making 70 appearances with Boston.”
14 appearances, 9.26 ERA.
Hey, whatever, I’m not complaining. It’s nice to see the Pirates gaining pitching, rather than losing it. I’m excited for the day when we’ll have a full bullpen.
“Officials say an off-duty South Fayette police officer has been charged in connection with an accident that injured two other police officers near a roadblock in Cecil.
Cecil Township police say the officer has been charged with DUI and aggravated assault after a crash involving his vehicle and two two patrol cars shortly before 2 a.m., according to KDKA-TV. Those cars were from Bridgeville, which had sent police to Cecil to respond to a report of shots fired on Millers Run Road.
The Bridgeville officers were trying to block off Route 50 when an H2 Hummer driven by an off-duty South Fayette police officer, identified as Thomas J. Walker, hit one unmarked police car, which was pushed into a marked cruiser, injuring one Bridgeville officer in each.”
