  1. I know I said the answer would be here, but now, I’ve decided that that ruins the suspense.

    I’ll post the answer later today.

  2. Answer:

    Vicki Clutterbuck (#7) is an acquaintance of my mother-in-law.

    Burns Magruder (#10) is a name we saw flipping through the staff pages of the Metropolitan Opera’s Playbill.

    Did you guess right?

  3. There was a pitcher for the Brewers named Brian Clutterbuck. Much better name than Gregg Buttocks.

  4. And I was so sold on Amanda Bumpers and Rodney Thumb.

    Scott was hoping Norman Kunk Jr was the one.
