    I was going to say Thorpe....He is a distant relative on mine. The last name Thorpe was used by my great grandparents, but the government has changed it twice by error. So I have cousines with last names of Thorpe, and Tharp.

    I know the answer, but in lieu of spoiling it for everyone else, i will tell you a couple of other interesting things about brodie

    He is very involved in the church of scientology

    His second career was on the Senior PGA Tour

    He was once a backup to YA Tittle (thats a hint)

    I've always wanted to go on jeopardy. Im a fountain of useless knowledge.

    After I answered, I saw that you had deferred. Should I have put it in white font or something to hide it from other people?
