I seem to have found myself watching Bob Barker's last turn on The Price Is Right.

So I can say I was there, man.


The first contestant won a Corvette, and then they played Plinko. The place is going nuts.

Let's see:

1. Short girl in green custom t-shirt wins Corvette.
2. Girl plays Plinko, gets all five chips but wins only $1500.
3. Guy wins speedboat playing The Range Game, and it proved you ALWAYS have to listen to the audience in the Range Game.

Showcase Showdown: Corvette girl wins after a spin-off with Plinko girl, and then wins $1000.

4. Guy from Canada is called to Contestants Row and nearly faceplants on his way. He actually gets up next and wins a car playing the "is it this price or that one?" game. Bob milks the suspense for all he can.
5. Woman named Melba replaced Guy From Canada on Contestants Row, people were throwing confetti of their own for her, she wins the bid and is now playing Grocery Game for a camper RV. She is extremely nervous.

Oh no! Melba lost the Grocery Game but it's okay because it's been a dream and a thrill etc just to be onstage with Bob. She was wearing a t-shirt with a ton of people's messages all over it.

I've hearing a slow, minor-key version of the theme song in my mind.

Yep, what lediva said.

Comes in handy when people blog about game shows. It's one of my two large-pixelated-dragon icons.

Now I want to go make a Whammy icon.

Aw, dammit, I'm missing it! Maybe I should call home and ask if someone can record the last 20 minutes for me. It was my 'soap opera' when I was a little girl (my nanny always watched Y&R, which was her soap opera, so I had to include myself somehow).

The episode was taped I think two weeks ago and was scheduled to air today.

I'm glad I have Fridays off!

Whee! Thanks for the heads-up. I picked it up in time for the second showcase showdown.

I missed it? Son of a bitch. I loved watching that show.

Back when I was in college...must have been sophomore year, we did this stupid thing where each floor in our complex (4 dorms, all connected) picked a "name" pertaining to South Dakota and its history, blah blah blah. I can't even remember what our floor chose, other than it was in Sioux. But one of the other floors called themselves the "Bob Barker Floor" (as Bob himself was born in...I believe it was Lemmon, South Dakota.) They all got tickets to the show over Spring Break, and one of the RAs made it to contestant's row.

Farewell, Bob Barker. You'll be missed.

(Also...is it bad that I recognized the dragon icon immediately, even though I should be too young to remember the show? Thank you, syndication!)

Someone tell me I wasn't the only one to get misty-eyed from the get-go.

It had to have been the energy in that studio. Every time someone got to "come on down!", it was as if the person had just won a seat on the last boat to heaven.
