To answer Joe Mello's question, hominy is corn kernals that have been soaked in lye to remove the hulls. Hominy is usually made with the Southern delicacy grits.

Today would have been the first time in over ten years I would have LOST Pick-a-Pair!

Goodness...was Frank in charge of setting up Pick-A-Pair today?  That was about as hard as you can make it.  Not only were the three pairs today $5.99, $6.99, and $8.99, Roger used both the Airborne (which has a $5.99 version and a $6.99 version) AND the Finazzle (which has a $5.99 version and an $8.99 version)!

...and it was still won.  Roger just found out that it is impossible to set up Pick-A-Pair for a loss.

(Incidentally, if this game is won every time, why did the Brits feel the need to simplify this game for their new Price??)

I agree with you Army, the setup for Pick-a-Pair today was NASTY to say the least. I'm still amazed it was won.

Yeah.  I rather liked how Pick a Pair was set up, Army.  Just wish it could've been finally lost for a change.

catdogwheel's stuff:  If I was in Bob's shoes I would have stopped the game, have them set the clock back to 10 seconds and tell her to bid WWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY YYYYYYYYY lower.

That's insane.  Why should she be awarded ten extra seconds for playing the game badly?  The only times anyone has been awarded extra time in the game was when the mistake was not the contestant's fault.

Aside from that, I don't believe Bob should have stopped the clock, period.  It seems he's been stopping the clock less than he did a few seasons ago, and I'm glad.  If the contestant isn't playing well, just let 'em go with it.

PG #1 - Good!  No Golden Road to mess with the FPG tomorrow!  Oooh, turntable action in Golden Road today!  :-D  AND IT'S WON!  :-D  :-D  :-D  Today's playing was very easy.  Only two possibilities for the missing digit in the Corvette cuz the 2 and 6 were already in the price... and the 9 simply looked better than the 3.

One-Bid #2 - Omima!  :-P

PG #2 - Wow, all of the prizes were LOWER.  Has that ever happened before?  Hey, $1,100 is pretty good!  Still a loss, but at least we're getting into the four-digit numbers now.

PG #3 - $913 was an evil price for Clock Game anyway...

PG #6 - "Hey, Roger finally gave us a tough Pappy setup!  We might finally see somebody lose!"  Wrong!  Even with a tough setup, Pappy still gets a win.

Showcases - That FRTS was a prime DSW opportunity for the CSS players.  We should have the prices of all three of those prizes memorized by now.  That random furniture paired with Morocco (?!) could've gone either way, though.  Woohoo!  Omima won!

My bids - FRTS:  $26,800.  Random room/trip:  $14,000.
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".

Golden Road was easy to win with the usual strategy, and was great fun...but I still say it deserves big clangs and whoops. I just love to hear those ^_^

Clock Game - she spent way too much time thinking and saying the whole number, but at least it wasn't as bad as the playing of Bonkers last time.

Pick-A-Pair: Agreed, very hard stuff this time. I thought she should've kept the 8.99 on her second try, but once again, I'm wrong.

And, I still can't figure out how much the trailer is (I thought 40K...I think I was a little tiny humongous bit off). Trailers and boats really throw me off.

Today's show was about average.

Great Golden Road win!

Simply put, the Clock Game playing was a disaster.

Pick-a-Pair was difficult, but it was still won! It just shows that the game isn't fun anymore when it's won pretty much every time. I really can't wait for it to be lost again.

OK, so did anyone notice Brandi's reaction at the end of the first Showcase?  As Rich was saying that the part she had landed was just a trick, I could swear that Brandi mouthed the "B" word to Shane.  Someone check the tape and back me up on this one.  If it's true, it's hilarious!

Could somebody please tell me why $913 is such an evil price for Clock Game?  I see so many people claiming such, and I have no idea why in the world it would be such a difficult price!  Why would $913 be any harder than $931, $968, or $999?

Especially considering that there seems to be a lot of $913 prizes in Clock Game...more so than probably anything except $999 or maybe $799.  Didn't Sally Sly win a $913 prize of some sort?

I didn't know that there was such a thing as "evil prices" in Clock Game.

In reply to above, I'm pretty sure Brandi didn't mouth the 'b' word.  From what I could tell, she was mouthing, "You are so mean."
