Maybe this is not that surprising. Maybe somebody out there on the 'geek actually games with this couple. Anything is possible. And, note that the "which games" question is not answered, so we could be talking about Monoporiskchesiominos. But I think there is a good chance that it is something a little more 'geeky than that.

In "Ok!" magazine (don't ask ;-( ), Dec 15 '08, there is a Q&A on page 39:

Quote:
What makes your marriage work?
... We always have date nights as well - it helps to keep the marriage alive after you have kids. My husband and I love to play board games together!


The interviewee: Christina Aguilera

I thought that was pretty kewl.

ps: not a fanboy, in fact, couldn't name a single song she's done -- she is a singer, right? But, I have just enough pop culture to know that she is a big name in it.

This was already posted, Rob. No biggie, just letting ya know. It is pretty cool, actually, even though I'm not really a fan of her at all.

She is my favorite of her generation of pop divas, which admittedly is a kind of like being my favorite sexually transmitted disease, but still. She can actually sing pretty well, which is a nice change from Brittany Spears, Jessica Simpson, Ashley Simpson (ugh, just threw up in my mouth a little).

Well, it wasn't for lack of due diligence on my part. I searched the Website from Alpha to Omaha and found no reference to it. So, unless they used an alternate spelling, I'm dogged(1) if I know where it was.

She is definitely the brightest and most talented of that gang of "pop divas."

Probably a really mean one too if you combine it with cferejohn's comment above...

The shame of it is that she can actually sing REALLY well. She has a fairly good range for a 'pop diva' and doesn't need post-processing to allow her to hit all the notes.

Damn shame she limits herself to pop and R&B music so much.

Sandra Oh (the actress from Grey's Anatomoy) also plays games. She is a huge Settlers of Catan fan.

Christina Aguleria (?) Is awesome. I've always had a lot of respect for her. She can sing damn fine and she doesn't act like a big dummy. Good to see a celebrity with a hobby besides tanning and attending charity dinners.
