A series of Visa commercials created what I like to call "The Kevin Bacon Game" i.e. trying to connect anyone and everyone on the planet to Kevin Bacon. And, thanks to one of my amazing co-workers, I am one step closer to that goal. He told me that his son goes to school with Kevin Bacon's son (who knew they were even in the KC area?...), which means that he is 3 degrees removed from the great Bacon, I'm 4 and since you're one of my readers, I think that makes you 5. Neat, right?
