Alright so the "Spokespeople" bio thing hasn't been updated on the Games website. Who do you think will be coming? I'm hoping for Steve Jobs and a FREE iPad or iPod--HA! :-)

Seriously, who do you think is coming? Larry Hagman and Chris Klug are pretty much a given ( :-) ) but who else do you think will make an appearance? Natalie Cole?

Hello, my name is Ralph N Johnson I just join this wonderful group of concern,loving,family and friends. My gift to life was on 7-12-14 liver transplant at Univ of Penn hospital Phila. In August I contacted (GVHD) from the liver transplant.August & September was spent fighting daily for my very life. Currently undetectable, My Dr. told me that I would be lucky to find as many people that it takes to play a hand of bridge that survived this disease. Can anyone point me in the direction to find the other three. Thank you.. See More
