WHATIZIT? 1-30-14

  • Written by Jeff Vorva

 You folks were certainly wizards last week and dr-color-2-col-waz-1-30I don’t mean Washington Wizards.

  Speaking of the Washington Wizards, last week’s Whatizit was a photo of the leg and foot of the statue of Washington Wizard Michael Jordan outside the United Center. Oh, yeah, he played for the Bulls, too.
  Many of you Whatizit wizards guess right and a few guessed wrong. Once again, Harrison Debre of Willow Springs was the first to ring in with the correct answer.
  Other six-time world champions were Chicago Ridge’s Kelly Peterson, Patty Vandenberg, Dan Higgins, and Bill Ivers, Hickory Hills’ Jack and Griffin Burke Faddis, Oak Lawn’s Bob Foley, Worth’s German Cordova, Russ Martin, Theresa and George Rebersky and Robert Solner, Evergreen Park’s Vince Vizza, and John Schikora and Palos Park’s Michael Staron.
  An MVP award goes out to Henrietta Mysliwiec of Evergreen Park, who added this tidbit: “I did not know this, but this statue is attached only in one place at the knee.”
  Those who shot airballs were those who guessed a leg and foot from the little girl on the bench statue outside of the Palos Heights library and a left-handed pitcher.
  This week’s clue is that it’s been handy to have around for the past couple of weeks.
