For years I have played a little game with the NYTimes Wedding Announcements page: I had to read them all until I hit the name of an Ivy League school. Most Sundays this meant that I only had to read one or two. Now I find that I have been missing out on the real thrills: what I should have been doing was keeping score. I find Gawker's system cumbersome, but irresistible.
