Just Say It

Guess Who? November 9, 2008

Filed under: Life... The Way I See It — candidchatter @ 5:11 am

So this post is just for fun. My husband works for a fantasy sports website. He is a senior programmer. Because of his line of work he sometimes gets to see sports celebrities. That’s what this is about.

Guess who waltzed his way through my husband’s office recently?

The winner of this “contest” gets to pick who we send a $25.00 donation to. The rules are as follows. The charity MUST accept online donations. It MUST be a real charity (as in tax deduction) — not your cousin’s friend’s mom who is down on her luck. It CANNOT be a charity that goes against our moral fiber (we will not donate to Planned Parenthood, in other words). We reserve the right to cancel this “contest” at any time for any reason. Thanks.

    Rich is 6 ft 2 in. The sports celeb is taller.

    Good Luck!

  2. Andrea Says:

    Come on Heidi, that is going to be hard. There are so many sports figures taller than 6’2″

  3. Andrea Says:

    Was it Dan Marino?

  4. candidchatter Says:

    Andrea: ROFL! I know there are, but I have to start vague. I wouldn’t want you to guess it right off. Wouldn’t be any fun then now would it? I’ll give another hint soon. So far you’re the only guesser — Sundays are slow around the web.



  5. candidchatter Says:

    Oh – it’s not Dan Marino.

    His last name doesn’t start with an “M”.

  6. mommato3blessings Says:

    LeBron? πŸ™‚ He is from MY neck of the woods, after all….

  7. candidchatter Says:

    Mel: No

    He is 47 and retired.


    You can guess more than once. Keep guessing peeps.


  8. wbppsh7 Says:

    MJ – hahahaha (Michael Jordan). I figured I would go for broke and just guess someone.

  9. tonyyork Says:

    Charles Barkley

  10. candidchatter Says:

    No Michael Jordan. No Charles Barkley.

    Did he play basketball or did he play football?
    It’s one of those!!


    PS: Maybe whoever wins will donate the $25 to Soles4Souls. You don’t have to, but it’s an idea!! πŸ™‚

  11. Will_nottheactor Says:

    OJ Simpson!!!

  12. candidchatter Says:

    LOL Will — isn’t he in his 60s?? And in jail?? You crack me up!!

    So recap:
    1) He’s taller than 6’2″
    2) His last name doesn’t start with an “M”
    3) He is 47 and retired
    4) He played football or basketball
    5) It’s not Dan Marino, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, or OJ Simpson

    Another hint:
    He wrote a book.

  13. Can’t be magic…he’s 49…

  14. candidchatter Says:

    It’s not Magic Johnson. πŸ™‚

    Hint: He’s a vegetarian.

  15. Let’s see…Patrick Ewing is about that age…and is Vegan…

  16. candidchatter Says:

    Do you all see how this works? You take a guess, I give a hint. So keep guessing. You are getting very very very close. Won’t be long now. And I might just give you a giant hint today since I’d love to see who will win this time. πŸ™‚

    Hint: He played for the NBA.


  17. Oh…could it be someone who shares a passion with you? Something that he knows much more about than you?

  18. How about Mr. Tattoo himself…Mr. Dennis Rodman?

    Or is that Miss Dennis Rodman?

    He’s been known to dress as a female!!!

  19. candidchatter Says:

    Steve: You ROCKED it out, man! Way to hang in there!! See, if I had said things like “controversial”, “once married to Carmen Electra”, “The Worm”, “Chicago Bulls”, “tattooed and pierced”, “dated Madonna”, etc. someone would have guessed it right off the bat. Today’s big hint was going to be “The Worm” though. Congratulations, my friend. What is the flavor of your charity?

    Thanks for playing everyone!! Dennis Rodman is the correct answer. About 2 months ago he strolled through Rich’s office to sign some basketballs that are going to be used as prizes in contests that Rich’s company is putting together for their fantasy sports site. How cool is that???



  20. Heidi…how about one of the signed basketballs? I’m sure my 9 month old would enjoy it…or use it for his college education one day!

    Soles4souls works for me…my wife and I are a supporter of theirs…so, fire off the donation their way…thanks for letting me play…and thanks everyone for stopping your guesses!

  21. candidchatter Says:

    Will do, Steve. Great charity!!!!! 10 more pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls. Yahoo!!

    Thanks for playing everyone.


  22. […] under: Life… The Way I See It — candidchatter @ 2:18 pm Thank you to everyone who played “Guess Who”. That was fun for me. I hope you had fun too. The NBA celeb that strolled through Rich’s […]
