Rooney Mara lands huge role

Congratulations to Rooney Mara, sister of Kate, daughter of Chris, granddaughter of Wellington, great-granddaughter of Art Rooney, for landing a huge role: Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming movie, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

Here is a post from last fall in which I challenged readers to come up with creative names that are built, as Ms. Mara's is, on the last names of two pro sports owners, past or present.

The winner: Bowlen Ball.
