Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

Fireball's Ep. 5 - IUFB #6 (rob's bid)
« Reply #1 on: May 08, 2006, 06:02:56 PM »
And we're back.  Before we go on, I'd like to point out that somebody is about to make history on my Play Along version of "The Price Is Right".  Garvin and Ludwig have both been down there in contestants row since I walked through those big doors.  After this bidding round is over, one or both of them will become the very first inductee(s) into Fireball's First Four Breakfast Club.  I don't know who the two of you have been getting your bids from in this audience, but stop listening to them. :-P

Burton, we need one more contestant.

Well, it'll be rob79!  Come on down!  You are the next contestant on "The Price Is Right"!

And over there is our next item up for bids.



It's a fun pair of dumbbells!

This pair of Nautilus SelectTech dumbbells is like having thirty pairs of dumbbells in one.  They adjust from 5 to 52.5 pounds and feature ergonomically designed chrome handles with kraton rubber grip.


And bid on that, rob.

(Bidding order:  rob, pathy, Garvin, Ludwig)

Maybe that's part of my problem -- I haven't been listening to anybody... :)

Well, it looks like Jordanar has this FPG basically wrapped up, since none of us has a regular car game 6th. I should have lost Poker.  :lol:

Actually, it's not over yet.  Jordan can lose Fireball's FPG I in one of two ways:

--If I play Cover and it's won, sternal will win with 3 MP/13 CP.

--If it's Dubba for a car and it's won, jhc will win with 2 MP/12 CP.

[color=00CC00]*DING*[/color]  And we close it out with Ludwig.  This is your last chance at a pricing game in this episode.

OK... here we go!  Let's see who's off to the clubhouse.  The actual retail price of those dumbbells is...



five hundred...







even! ($500) [color=00CC00]*DINGDINGDINGDINGDING*[/color] Mr. Garvin escapes!  Come on up here!  Welcome to the show.  You've been waiting this entire episode to get up here... and I've been waiting this entire episode to give away one of these!



A new car! *Passing Lane*

The 2006 Nissan Maxima SL comes with standard features plus 3.5 SE sensory package, XM satellite radio, splash guards, floor mats, and paint sealant!  The Nissan Maxima!

It's a Nissan Maxima, and here come my beauties with the dice for the Dice Game.  Light up the first number in this car, please.



[color=00CC00]*DING*[/color] Three! *audience ooohs and cheers* We're not screwing around today, Garvin--this is a $30,000 car you're playing for!  You know how to play this game.  No zeroes, no numbers higher than six.  Roll that first die over this line.

*roll*



A five--is that the second number? [color=CC0000]*BUZZ*[/color] Nope.  Is that second number higher or lower than 5?

Say lower!  A Maxima like that should be in the low $30,000.
