  • Double Prices is the BEST game.
I walk into Barker's Bargain Bar to find some deals. I notice the men's department and encounter some Temptation. I go over and look at some t-shirts trying to figure out which one is 1/2 Off. One shirt has Five Price Tags on it for some reason so I must go to the price scanner to find out which is the One Right Price. Next I go over to the slacks and see a sign, "2 for the Price of 1." I figure the Clearance Sale price is around $40 each. Seeing that it's a good deal, I Take Two. Time is running short, so I hurry over to the shoes department to see if I can Pick a Pair for my meeting tomorrow. I find the perfect shoes, hurry back to the Check-Out and hand the clothes to the clerk so she can ring them up. She tells me the Actual Retail Price for all the items, and I discover...

THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

Have a nice day.

Saddened to hear of the passing of Bill Fralic.  I remember he used to appear on professional wrestling programs as well, most notably the Stars and Stripes Challenge on Independence Day 1993.  I remember he was the closest of all the challengers to bodyslamming Yokozuna before Lex Luger showed up.

And he was also in the NFL/WWF battle royal at WrestleMania 2 in 1986.
