We’re getting even more excited about next week’s Words With Friends tournament. Thanks to an enthusiastic response to our call for you to participate, we know we’re going to have a great field of 64 competitors. You have until 5 p.m. Thursday to enter for a chance to be among them. We’ve also extended automatic bids to a number of local personalities. Among them:
- Musician Rhett Miller, best known as singer for the Old 97s, says he grew up playing Scrabble, and claims an average WWF score of 300.
- Brad Oldham is a local sculptor and product designer. You may know him because you’re Tim Rogers and you sometimes play basketball with him. Or you might recognize works of his, like the “Traveling Man.”
- Novelist Harry Hunsicker works as a commercial real estate appraiser, but he should be better known for his mysteries featuring private detective Lee Henry Oswald, the “fix-it man of last resort on the back streets of Dallas.”
