A silly game

Tucker:  The Human Assistant found a website with lots of silly "games." For some of them you answer a few questions. Then it tells you what dinosaur you are. For a few others you put in your name and sex. Then it tells you what your Tibetan name is.

mr_ed:  Those are invented examples, by the way.

Tucker:  Many of these games are about your relationship with men. And not in a dog/human way. Not in a dog/human way that I want to think about.

So the Human Assistant has invented a game about sports. It's a little silly. And you don't have to be a guy to play. You don't even have to be human. It's easy! (Especially compared to what he usually thinks up.)

Here's how it works:
  • 1.  Think of a number less than 100.
    • It has to be a whole number, not a fraction or decimal.
    • It can't be a negative number.
    • It can be 0 or 00.
  • 2.  Click (below) on the link to the number.
  • 3.  See what famous athlete you are!
  • 4.  Some numbers have other athletes you can be instead.


Tucker:  Many thanks to Sports Illustrated for making this game possible! They were playing a kinda silly game themselves when they created the web pages.

mr_ed:  Yeah ... #33?  What were they thinking? That number could only be Sammy Baugh!

One site has him on their "All-Time 11." They put together a football team with only 11 players. (Not 80 or 75 or 53 or even 45 like NFL teams have, just the 11 that can be on the field all at one time.) The 11 could come from any time in professional football. "Slingin' Sammy" is their quarterback.

Baugh was football's first Triple Crown player. In 1943 he led the league in three different categories - passing, punting, and interceptions.  Not interceptions that he threw as a quarterback ... interceptions that he caught!  One of his punting records still stands more than 60 years later!

And he's called the first modern quarterback in the pros. Let's see some basketball player top that kind of career!

Tucker:  But anyway. Have fun with the game!

mr_ed:  P.S.
  • Which one is an animal (four-legged)?
  • Which three are humans but not listed for a career in:
    • baseball,
    • basketball,
    • football, or
    • hockey?

Is that a combined number? You may have to divide by two and a cat to get your individual number.

Woo hoo, I'm Pele!

Mom says that fits because today I got hurt when Claire FELL off the bed and fell on ME and hurt my leg and I gave Mom and the Boy a taste of what a Siberian Death Wail sounds like...

Mom threw on her clothes to take me to the hospital and...I got up and walked off.

Mom says 'Such a drama queen, Just like a soccer player!' I don't know what that means but she says she saw LOTS of that when she watched world cup soccer last summer.

Soccer sounds fun.

And Tucker? I took your advice on the shoes and chewed up Mom's favorite sandals. I don't think she was very happy at all.

We clicked on number 2 for Mom's favorite NASCAR driver and we found the four-legged animal. The racehorse, Secretariat.

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

I came up as Wayne Gretzky (99). That's fitting, since I love ice! Hee hee hee!

I'm Orel Hershiser. Makes perfect sense since I am totally oral fixated on food and treats!
