Rhett Miller of the Old 97s Advances, Believes He Was Playing Mad Men Star at Words With Friends

Musician Rhett Miller has joined the Elect Eight in the D Magazine Words With Friends Tournament. Though a presumed misspelling on Rhett’s official report to the tournament director suggests that he may have played actress Christina Hendricks, we’re prettty sure that he actually took on his assigned opponent for Round 3, Cristen Hixson of UT-Dallas.

In any event, he came out ahead, 426 to 335, after a six-hour match. Here’s what he had to say:

PerkieGirl commanded the game forever. I finally got some luck in the last five or so plays. Back to back 47’s. I was able to seal the victory with a 76 point bingo, feasters.

Jump for the board.
