Big Picture Categories: Smiths

King's Cup might be the best drinking game out there. Everyone has their own version, there's ample drinking and sometimes -- on a few lucky occasions -- hot chicks end up naked. One of the best "games" in King's Cup is Categories, which often is represented by the Jack card. In Categories, the person who draws the card says a category (fast food joints, baseball stadiums, etc.) and everyone must go around the circle naming one until somebody stumbles. When that person fucks up, they drink. Make sense? Good.

We can't imagine a world where we walk down the street and pass by multiple people -- let alone anyone -- with the same last same. We know of political strategist Daniel Schnur and former Northwestern quarterback Steve Schnur, who led the Wildcats to the 1996 Rose Bowl. But it stops there. Anyone else with that last name is probably family.

Then there is the surname Smith, which is used by about one in every hundred Americans according to Wikipedia, which is slowly taking over the world. You walk down the same street and you might cross paths with many people that share your name.

And this commonality comes across in the wide world of sports. So today's category is naming all the Smiths in either pro or college sports. We'll start and you guys continue in the comments. You can go again after every five comments. One -- one! -- answer per comment, assbags. First person to blow it has to do body shots off famous movie director Kevin Smith.

We'll start with one that comes to mind: Steve Smith (the Carolina Panthers one).

All right, folks. Spew your knowledge in the comments.

How about another Steve Smith - this time, it's the hockey-playing, scoring-in-his-own-net-to-break-up-the-Gretzkey-led-cup-string one. A guy who, since I hated Gretzky and since that goal led in part to a Habs cup win, was a hero of sorts to me.
