    Hosted game shows, as did his brother Jimmy Narz, who took the name Tom Kennedy:

    I remember seeing Narz on "Now You See It," which re-runs on GSN most nights. I never remembered watching that show growing up -- and I was a game-show fanatic -- so I was curious when I stumbled onto it one night.

    That show lasted only two years, but it was interesting, if a bit convoluted. You had to find hidden words in a mass of letters based on the clues Narz read off. You started off as two two-person teams, then the players on the winning team would compete against each other for the right to take on the defending champion.

    BTW, how do you become a "game show expert" as that one professor from Union College in Tennessee was? Did he kick Ben Stein's ass or win on Jeopardy?

    Watched him in the hospital when I was a very ill little boy.

    I actually know that guy. He used to publish a newsletter about game shows and now he has a website. He worked in TV news for a while, too.
  5. Well, it helps if you've never, ever, at any point in your life, had sex.

    Nice work if you can get it.

    Owner of a great pick-up line that my co-workers use to their benefit.

    "This is Birdscribe. He's a Jeopardy champion..."

    That's what people always say about sportswriting.

    And they were right, back when there was work to be had.
