Bachmann's Brother; Presidential Drinking Game

Famous Family: No, this isn't that Kevin Bacon game, "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" ,where you try to show everyone is somehow related to the actor. But our station, WHO-TV, may have a family connection to the 2012 presidential race. Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican congresswoman, is the sister of Gary Amble. He used to be our main weather man and was very popular. He moved south down I-35 to Kansas City.

In case you are wondering, the congresswoman is NOT related to our main anchor. John spells his last name with just one "n", Bachman. But we think no less of him for it:)

Presidential Drinking Game: Not sure what to make of this, but for the drinkers among you...especially those who get bored by traditional speeches...I'll throw this out. The San Francisco Chronicle offers a drinking game to get you through the state of the union. Here's the short of it...if the prez talks bipartisanship and House Speaker John Boehner cries, then you might get hammered. I'm not endorsing the idea. I don't need to drink during these things. But to each, her own.

I think that you mean Bachmann is the sister of Gary Amble.

I'm thinking the congresswoman is not anyone's brother, she might be Gary Amble's sister, though.

Yep. Thanks to both of you. My apologies.
