I only speak one language, and I’m not that great at it. Teammate guessing games make my heart race and give me sweaty palms. And I get stage fright performing in front of others. Even at staff meetings.
So I’m not passing judgment, in any way, on Kevin Seraphin for his performance playing $25,000 Pyramid with John Wall at a recent Wizards game. I just found it to be an amazing romp through the various stages of human life and desserts you’d eat with a spoon.
Like, has any NBA team ever had players discussing Creme Brulee on its big screen before? I would guess not.
Seraphin helped Wall get four of the clues: “Marker,” “Country,” “Credit” and “Number.” Two that stumped them: “Spoon” and “Adult.” Here’s how those went. (“Sashia” is “Sashia Jones,” the team’s terrific senior director of community relations.)
