Well here is a topic you may have never considered doing any Google research on ( or you just don't give a damn )

I came across an old article that I wrote a couple of years ago about celebrities and famous sports athletes that are from North Dakota, and there are some huge ones that come to mind instantly. For some reason, I chose to investigate more thoroughly, and no better way than to open up Wikipedia.

After being impressed by the long list, I then wondered IF EVERY letter in the Alphabet was represented

Does that make any sense at all? For instance, let's take the letter "R" - right away Ronda Rousey came to me - she of course was raised in Jamestown. So I then dived in further and found that only 4 letters were not represented - can you guess which ones they are?

According to Wikipedia, here are just a few known names ( last names ) from North Dakota ( except 4 letters of course )

A) Reese Andy - Mixed martial artist - Minot

B) Carmen Berg -Playmate - Bismarck

C) Chris Coste - Major League Baseball player - Fargo

D) Angie Dickinson - Actress - Kulm

E) Anthony W England - NASA astronaut - West Fargo

F) Phyllis Frelich - Actress - Devils Lake

G) William H Gass - Writer - Fargo

H) Virgil Hill - WBA champion boxer -Grand Forks


J) Phil Jackson - NBA player/coach - Williston

K) Wiz Khalifa - Rapper - Minot

L) Peggy Lee - Singer, songwriter - Jamestown

M) Roger Maris - Major League Baseball player - Fargo

N) Steve Nelson - Pro Football player - North Dakota State

O) John Olerud - Major League Baseball player - Lisbon

T) Chris Tuchscherer - UFC heavyweight fighter - Rugby


V) Bobby Vee - Pop singer - Fargo

Well did you get it before I displayed all the names - the 4 letters are I, U, X, and Z!
