OT: Taking me back to the old days

When I was a lad, I watched "The Price Is Right" with my mom every morning.

I dreamed of someday hitting the Showcase Showdown.

This guy, whom we know only as Terry, lived my dream yesterday.

NOTE: You only need to watch the first 50 seconds.

SECOND NOTE: Is this what Gene Chizik looked like on Saturday afternoon?

Dye was at Crane Works Christmas Party before this...too much eggnogg.

Dye--"I haven't talked to Tommy".

There's a newsflash.

What really sucks is the lady came pretty damn close with her bid

Don't you win both showcases if you're under 500 from your price?

Shouldn't they both have won both showcases?

Is Dye going to be on after the break?

Yes, Finebaum said to Dye, "You're on a roll".

Is it just me or does Dye's speculation so far sound like he's read all the blogs and message boards.

Ya'll not going to believe this...but I was actually on the Price is Right! It aired in Feb 1980. I went on while we were living in Calif and I won a car, $1000 on the big wheel, and was in the showcase but didn't win!! Got the old VCR tape for evidence! I kissed Bob Barker (he had brown hair at the time)and the best commercial on my tape is the old "Mean Joe Green" coke commercial!!

Glad that the Nutt job wasn't even considered.

I think I have only seen that once in my life, now this is twice.

Gotta be an inside job. It's crazy how Drew Carey isn't even fazed by it.

My favorite TPIR youtube is the one where they put a Maury Povich "Not the Father" sequence to Price is Right music. It's not really the Price is Right, I know, but it's damn funny.

Dye, "WE ain't talked to anyone" Referring to Muschamp and Fisher.

"WE"

wareaglegirl. how much taxes did you have to pay? did you keep the car? tell me more

2:43 PM  
Blogger weagle251 said...

WEG,
That must've been back when there were only four digits in the car pricing games.

2:44 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

We paid $500 in taxes to pick up the car which was a Triumph Tr-7 if you remember them! It was a convertible which was fun in Calif. We kept it about 3 years and then sold it to someone in our squadron. I'll try to get the kids to help me figure out how to see it....maybe easier on Facebook and not out in public? It's a Hoot!!

2:47 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

i have no idea what that is, but convertibles are fun

2:49 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

TR7s were pretty cool back during their day.

"The shape of things to come."

Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

A friend had a TR7 back in the day - he wished he had two of them...... One to supply parts for the other one. It was always broke.... It was a cool looking ride for its time though.

3:00 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

yea...that was one reason we sold it was because Triumph was going out of business. Of course, in our midlife crisis these days it would be fun to have back!

I'm going to need Drew Carey to be a little bit more excited. He acts like it's no big deal.

Inside job? What's an inside job for? Ratings, right?

Have you seen the flames aimed at the producers for their conduct of this show? And the thousands of former Price fans since this day, from Drew's conduct?

I've got one question to ask: What ratings?
