Wacky Word Puzzles
Who Am I ?
Mystery Person #1
- I was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1932.
- I grew up to be known as the “Clown Prince of Basketball” and for hitting hook shots from half court.
- I made my first basketball hoop out of an onion sack and coat hanger that I nailed to a tree and an empty Carnation milk can was my ball.
- I was drafted into the United States Army and served for two years, during which time I was stationed in Austria and West Germany.
- I had 10 children. They were named Richard, George, Beverly, Donna, Robin, Jonathan, Jamison, Angela, Crystal, and Caleb.
- In 1982, I made it to the top of the Quinnipiac University Poll as “most popular athlete.” (The “Q” poll universally regarded as a gold standard in national and state-wide polling.)
- I used to surprise fans and opponents by throwing passes to my teammates that would snap right back to me… because the ball was attached to a large rubber band.
- I was inducted into the NBA Basketball Hall of Fame.
- I received the NBA John Bunn Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2000.
Mystery Person #2
- I was born on June 11, 1910, in Saint-André-de-Cubzac, France.
- Although never formally trained, I grew up to become one of the most influential ocean researchers and advocates of all time.
- I was a member of the World War II French Resistance and was awarded the Legion of Honor by France for my efforts.
- After being severely injured in an automobile accident in my early 20s, my rehabilitation involved swimming in the ocean, which led to a growing interest in the sea and marine life.
- Eventually, I traveled the ocean conducting research on a ship I converted to include a mobile laboratory, high-tech equipment, an underwater observation area, a helicopter pad, mini submarines, and more.
- In 1943, I co-invented a breathing device for scuba-diving called the Aqua-Lung, which allowed divers to stay beneath the water unencumbered for extended periods of time.
- I also helped invent the diving saucer, a small submarine that could hold two people and easily maneuver at deep depths along the seafloor.
- My first television special aired in 1966 and led to a series that focused on my undersea research adventures and ran for close to 10 years.
Mystery Person #3
- I was born in Switzerland in 1936 and was the third of six children.
- I played a Bond girl in the earliest James Bond movie starring Sean Connery, but my voice had to be dubbed because of my heavy accent.
- At the age of 18, I left home and moved to Rome, Italy, to pursue my dream of becoming a movie star, ending up in Hollywood within a year and signing a contract with Paramount Pictures.
- Most people are familiar with a well-known movie scene of me emerging from the ocean in a white bathing suit and wearing a diving knife on my hip.
- In 1963, I starred with Elvis Presley in the musical comedy “Fun in Acapulco.”
- I created quite a media frenzy in the 60’s when (the quite a bit older) actor/director John Derek left his wife and family to be with me. We married, but the union lasted only a few years.
- I was the center of another media storm decades later when I dated and had a son with actor Harry Hamlin after we met while filming the movie “Clash of the Titans.” I was in my early 40s and he was in his late 20s.
- In 1995, the film magazine “Empire” included me in its list of the “100 Sexiest Stars” in film history.
