Out In Left Field / Re: 2020 NFL Season
« Last post by BDE on Today at 06:21:05 PM »
Turns out that Rashard Higgins's fumble resulting in a touchback cost the Browns a chance to go to the AFC Championship Game as the Chiefs managed to win by a score of 22-17. Also there was no targeting call either. Had he got to the end zone things would have been different.

I now wonder if the NFL will change the rules for the fumble touchback at their owners' meeting later in the year, given the current rule states that the defense gets the ball at the 20 yard line. Perhaps the offense should keep the ball, have a new set of downs, and at the 20.
I wonder the same. We shall see if the NFL does indeed change its rules.

I think if Bob just got to the point and said choose the product with the exact price and the one whose price is multiplied by 10 that would've helped.

In theory, this would be the ideal route But in practice, I believe you need a description that encompasses the full objective a bit more.

Imagine you tell an nervous contestant not familiar with blackjack to pick an item whose price is multiplied by 10. Its all great, until they get a 7 to start and you have to explain their new goal, possibly adding more confusion

Due to major excess capacities on the airlines, this year’s biz class ticket prices are priced not much more than pre-Covid coach seats.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Question about this season

Drew spends no time getting to know the contestants so it becomes just strangers off the street playing pricing games and spinning the wheel.   He doesn't bring out their personalities to make us want to root for them like the previous host :)

Time isn’t exactly a luxury they have.

Thus the distanced staging.

But really, we’re supposed to think a friendly throwaway line at the end of the show is somehow driving down viewership? Not that maybe as a topical show in times like these that The View would add viewers? And that’s limiting to broadcast, which is a flawed comparison to begin with.

Time is Money! One of my favorite games! And what a spectacular win! :-)  Nice “down to the wire” win in Any Number as well.

Bad luck in Spelling Bee. I too would have gone for the car.

No “The Price Is Right” graphic before the host entrance door opens?

Thank you... yep that was me on the Spelling Bee!

Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda has passed away at age 93 after the last two months in hospital for a heart condition.
Tommy was (and still is) one of my heroes. Rest in peace, Tommy.

The Winker never ceases to amaze! He was on Password Plus opposite Gene Rayburn in 1981.

He has explained (though probably not every show) that they do wear masks except the times they are on camera.

I am aware of that. However, it's not like COVID isn't going to not spread when the camera lights are on.
