Figured we needed to establish our own list as well.  Here is the beginning of what should be a much longer list.  Feel free to make your own additions, including esteemed businessmen and politicians.

Is that Len Kasper?  No offense to him but he sucks as the Cubs announcer.

ahhhh, Amy Madigan..., years ago my now wife was telling some people in fla that a girl I had dated in school was nominated for an academy award that year, to which one of them replied-'he dated Whoopi Goldberg?'  We still get a laugh whenever we think of it.

I dont know how to insert a picture but Sports Illustrated writer Steve Rushin is an alumn. He actually gave the keynote address at the Ignatious Scholar dinner I attended before coming to MU.

To insert a picture, just click reply and then click on the "Insert Image" icon above the edit window (it looks like a picture frame).  That will insert [ img][ /img].  You paste the image link in the middle of the "][" part.  If you're confused by this, quote this post and take a look at what you see in the edit window.

Probably recognized by few (if any), buy maybe some in the late 80s/early 90s crowd:

The Free Money Guy - About 1 month after the Marquette Magazine had a blurb about him being an MU grad, I took a business trip to Boston.  As I was leaving M.I.T., where I made my Voice of Customer visit, I spotted the Free Money guy in a Cambridge park on the Charles River doing what looked like him filming a commercial.  You got to love the Riddler suit.

Matthew lives near me in DC.  He drives a Cooper Mini with question marks all over it and summer drives a scooter with the same.  Definitely knows how to attract attention.

I thought Lawrence Frank just coached at MU under O'Neill. I was under the impression that he went to IU.

He went to MU for grad school and was the graduate assistant under KO.

Hey! I was there. Got a copy of his book, Road Swing, and while I still haven't managed to read the whole thing, what I remember was pretty entertaining. As was his speech. Always enjoyed his column in SI.

Got the book autographed and everything. Definetly entertaining speech. And he had his wife, Rebecca Lobo introduce him. That dinner basically hooked me for good.
