Diamond 2 Degrees of Sheep Reveal

Reveal will start in an hour. I will take turbo entries for 9 minutes ie until :12


Send me a PM with a list of the following:

A Canadian Prime Minister
A Royal Personage
An astronaut
A famous mathematician
A retired professional hockey player
A retired professional hockey exectutive
A famous physicist


This is a regular sheep. Almost. I've called it 2 Degrees of Sheep because I have met (or a member of my immediate family has met) someone from each category. Anyone whose entry contains one or more of these people will get a bonus of 2 points per match.

Re: 2 Degrees of Sheep Reveal

Zmog. I wonder how bad this entry was. Feel like I've entered 20 games since this one. Will try to remember to check back around reveal time.

Re: 2 Degrees of Sheep Reveal



A father-son picture of the sheep and the bonus-points answer.

And from the entry thread: "If you submit Last name as an answer, and there could be multiple legitimate answers using Last name, your answer will not be grouped with any of them." I can be harsh, but I warned everyone.

Re: 2 Degrees of Sheep Reveal

A Canadian Prime Minister.

My father used to be the head of a department of the federal government in the 70's. He got to meet Pierre Trudeau.

Only one person out of the running.

Re: 2 Degrees of Sheep Reveal

A Royal Personage

In my last year of high school, the Prince and Princess of Wales were visiting St. John's, NF. Several students from the city were invited to a gala aboard the royal yacht. We got to talk with them about various things.

Another runaway sheep, though.

Yeah, that 2 points for Prince Charles wasn't really worth it.

I thought that the responses would be more split amongst the Royal Family.

Re: 2 Degrees of Sheep Reveal

An Astronaut

I figured at least some of you would have tried Canadian astronauts. The game works, regardless.

This one is the first of my mother's. She was a close friend of Roberta Bondar, growing up in Sault Ste Marie, ON. They have kept in touch over the years.

I'm pretty sure I tailored my answers toward the bonus points, thinking others may do the same. Not so much.

I suppose famous is in the eye of the beholder. As an undergrad, I had the great fortune to attend a seminar by John Horton Conway, and talk with him afterward.
