Atlanta is in the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years.  Hope they can upset the Patriots.

Bill Belichick will coach his 7th Super Bowl which will break the all-time record for most Super Bowl appearances by a head coach.  New England will now be the leader in Super Bowl appearances.

The TALK Is Right / Re: A (Pricing) Showcase Showdown
« Last post by Josh444 on Yesterday at 11:43:18 PM »
This is just my crazy fantasy world, so ignoring timing and logistics and all that here is what I would do:

I would use a series of "Showcase Showdown" games, games fit for 3 players where the winner gets to advance to the Showcase. Same rules as the current Showcase Showdown would apply, the player who has won the most during the show would have the best chance at advancing to the Showcase Round by being given the most picks/best odds/first pick, etc.

Some of the games would be similar to games played on local lottery game shows that used to be played across the country (again, pure fiction), and some would be "Let's Make a Deal-ish" type games. The Big Wheel would be included amongst the rotating list of 3 player games.

This was the worst edition of the NFL playoffs in quite a long time.  Only one game was entertaining all the way through and the rest were blander than a cracker with no seasoning.

1-1 in the picks.  At least the Packers lost...

I'll pick the Pats to win and hope that I'm wrong.

Yordano Ventura, RHP for Kansas City (helping the Royals to their 2015 World Series), was killed in a car crash. He was 25.

~~I think they should do away with the "come on downs" because the person doesn't have to price anything in order to qualify for contestants row. :evil: ~~  #notserious

I agree with CBSpromoman's  points 100%.  I get why some people don't like the wheel because it doesn't involve pricing, but it serves its purpose well.  It gives all 3 people involved an equal shot at the showcase and can even provide somebody who didn't win anything in their pricing game another chance to win something should they advance to the showcase.  Sure there's other ideas that would work just as well as a qualifying round for the showcase like "The Price WAS Right" from TnPIR '94, but the wheel creates suspense, rewards you for a perfect spin of $1.00 not once but twice if you're lucky, and (with Drew moreso than Bob) gives the players an extra 15 seconds of fame while saying hi to their friends and family.  If the "it doesn't fit with the rest of the show" logic were applied to say... Wheel of Fortune, one could argue that they shouldn't have the toss-up puzzles because the players don't actually spin the wheel to play them.

0-1, but I'm very happy that the Packers were shown the door and I'm on the Falcons wagon.

Now, if Genghis Tom and the Patriots can be conquered, that would be the icing on the cake.
