The Name Game – Full Participation

Can’t take credit for this one – I got the idea from another blogger on Sporting News.

Game Rules are easy – use the first letter from the previous last name and list the name of a sports’ personality.

FOR EXAMPLE: I will start with Bobby Orr.

Using the O from his last name I give another name: Orland Kurtenbach (You can google or take my word that he was the first captain of the Vancouver Canucks).

Then using the K I go to Kirby Puckett.

If you use a double (first and last start with the same letter), that’s fine. Keep it going.

Who’s up next? Let’s roll.
