And the winner is…
The winner of the quiz is Willy, who had the 64th guess, correctly noting that LeBron James and my wife are both studying mandarin. My wife and four kids are all studying Mandarin, in part because we have two daughters adopted from China. (I tried learning a while back, but I had no talent for it and gave up.)
LeBron is studying mandarin as an investment in increasing his popularity in China, according to ESPN. Kind of like Shakira learning English, in reverse. My hat’s off to both LeBron and Shakira for making very worthwhile investments in their human capital.
