    Need Your Ideas ... (Hints inside)

    My g/f's school (A Beauty Salon School) is having a raffle. There is a box with an item inside valued at roughly $150. Each guess to what is inside the box cost 50 cents.

    Here are the 3 hints:

    1) Who Dey (Bengals age old chant - so it's something to do with Cincy and or the Bengals)

    2) "Stinky" (no clue about this one)

    3) Luck of the Irish (no clue here either)



    Any thoughts?

    My guess was...

    Chinedum Ndukwe Game Worn Jersey

    Ndukwe (Who Dey)
    Ndukwe (Notre Dame / Irish)
    Game Worn Jersey (Stinky)

    My guess was wrong! Doh!

    game worn jersey seems like a good guess (stinky and who dey clues), but does Luck of the Irish mean its a Notre Dame tie? Could it be a JT O'Sullivan game worn jersey? Or perhaps its a helmet from either player or another player w/ "Irish" ties.

    Consider the $150 value!

    Brian Kelly is now at Notre Dame (Irish)

    Maybe the raffle people think that is "stinky"

    ...but, "why dey"? Hmmm...

    Doesn't UC play Notre Dame?

    My first guess would be something to do with Chinedum Ndukwe as well. He went to Notre Dame so that covers the Bengals and the Notre Dame hints. Not sure about the stinky though--cleats, helmet?

    The $150 value is kind of arbitrary in this case I would think. Who places the value? I doubt you could get much for a game worn jersey of either player. At 50 cents a guess, its worth submitting several ideas.

    Maybe they're Bengals tickets. 2 tickets would probably be about a $150 value, and they could fit in a box easily. If they're Bengals and Pittsburgh tickets perhaps Pittsburgh (or whoever the opponent is) covers the "stinky" clue. Any teams who have a head coach or something that went to Notre Dame? Also, isn't O'Malley's an irish bar downtown that has the Bengals rallies and stuff?

    I already thought about the tickets...and Pittsburgh being the "stinky".

    Hmmm...O'Malley's in the Alley!

    Todays hints are...

    "Skin"

    and...

    "which one came first" (the egg vs chicken question?)

    This confuses the heck out of me!

    Mark Schlereth at ESPN is a former Redskin who is nicknamed Stinky.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Perhaps an autographed picture of Mike & Mike w/ Stink? Of course, I'm not sure what the Who Dey reference is. Is there ESPN personality that played for the bengals that would be on that show at the same time (I'd assume Cris Carter doesn't count even though he's from the area) Perhaps its a framed picture w/ tickets to a bengals game?
