Give Me the Bacon

This is BEYOND random, but a few weeks ago Jess posted about how her dad was an extra in Jaws (how cool is that?!) She ended her post with the mind-blowing discovery that she was less than 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon. Being that I absolutely LOVE Kevin Bacon {my mom and I call him Kevey Bakey---don't really know why} my wheels started turning...."what are the chances that I am 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon?"

and guess what friends...


This is our friend Ryan (and his baby, Claire, who is no longer a baby):

Ryan's second cousin, Nick Shenk, wrote the movie Grand Torino.

Grand Torino starred Clint Eastwood.

Clint Eastwood directed the movie Mystic River starring ... KEVIN BACON!

So then I started to think....
if it's that easy to connect to Kevin Bacon, why can't I connect with Leonardo DiCaprio?
And, well, I can: Ryan ----> Nick Schenk ----> Clint ----> Kevey Bakey who starred in Apollo 13 with Tom Hanks, who starred in Catch Me If You Can with Leo!

That's all I've got, off to ask Ryan for a HUGE favor....have a good day people.
