SEVEN LITTLE WORDS

Which iPod App has taken the Heat players by storm? It's not Angry Birds, Solitaire, or even a hockey game, but a word puzzle. The game is called Seven Little Words, and according to Heat Forward Carter Bancks, its the furthest thing from dull. "It's pretty addicting." said the 23-year-old. "You get seven clues and you have to make seven little words with these tiles of letters."

"My mom actually was the on that told me about it." Bancks admits. "She said ' you've gotta try this when you're travelling'". Bancks has made the game popular among his teammates, "It's great when you're on the road, or on a bus when you've got time to kill." Passing iPads around the airplane and racing teammates on puzzles is a pretty sight. Not a bad idea for a team that spends nearly 100 days on the road each season.

While Bancks has made the game popular among his peers, he wasn't the first to play the game. "Ben Street played before I did, but he never told anybody." shares Bancks. "It's amazing how far he's gotten on his own in the game." But Bancks isn't too far behind his fellow forward "I've bought six extra sets of puzzles and I'm working on the last one right now".

Sounds like a whole lot of fun over just Seven Little Words! Head to www.sevenlittlewords.com to see what the buzz around the team is all about.
