Footballers Can Act Quiz – Guessing Closed

With another Super Bowl behind us I thought we’d visit some NFL players who have gone on to have acting careers.  I wanted to make it about books, but not surprisingly, I found little connection between ex-football players and literature 😉  Good luck.  Each one is worth 10 points.

You have until Friday noon to submit your answers as a comment.  I hide your answers until then.

A few rules…No cheating.  No googling or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system…Your first answers will be the only ones accepted…Have fun!

 This round for every participant I have (currently at $27)  I will put in a $ for a B&N gift card or a Babies R Us gift card for the winner. Even if you play only once you are eligible to win the second prize (something special I pick out) and you will be adding money to the kitty for the winner.
