Ben of ESPN Radio’s Ben and Skin Show, The Ticket’s Dan McDowell Advance in D Magazine Words With Friends Tournament

Dan McDowell of the Ticket finished off high school science teacher Nick Sanchez by a score of 397 to 379 in our tournament. Fellow radio star Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show also punched a ticket to the Saccharine 16, with a 355 to 245 win over carsick photojournalist Mike Fuentes. Let the story that Ben tells be a lesson to you, kids: don’t WWF and drive:

Our game started late due to me being stuck in meetings in the early afternoon following our award-winning show/ear gift. Because of my work delays, we were forced to squeeze in a speed match. Because of a work related road trip on his end, Mike was forced to play while stuck in a car en route to Houston for a photo shoot in an oil field. He took an early lead but eventually suffered a setback due to car sickness from speed-playing while in motion. The turning point was the double word style – triple word play of Oaks with the S joining the strange word for Hew for some sweet double plural triple time good times.
