I'll always remember Paxton for his haunting performance as Hank Mitchell in A Simple Plan.  Rest in peace, Bill.  :(

Another thing: Why was the race in segments anyway?

This was a part of NASCAR's offseason rule changes, where every race will be 3 segments and the top ten drivers in the first two segments will earn points, along with everybody getting points at the end of the last segment.

Here's a link explaining further details: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nascar/2017/01/23/nascar-2017-rules-changes/96963566/

To me, this just is just another unnecessary rule that makes something that should be simple into something more complicated.  Whatever happened to the car at the finish line at the end of the race getting the most points? It's dumb.  Thank goodness F1 and the Indycars don't use gimmicks like what NASCAR is doing.

CSS -- Chatroom Showcase Showoff / CSS Results for 02/27/2017 (Game 102)

A FRATs with a new Australia... that wasn't terribly much, despite being in an apartment. I shouldn't have upped my bid by that much... Phat ends up taking this one.

The Rockwood Premier has shown up a handful of times now, always with the same camping equipment and that 7n camping pass. On Father's Day last year, it was 16447 in a fee game. Add in el Latitude and the showcase was going to be very expensive, but the trick was the cheapo Furniture of America bedroom. grfanatic wraps up a win with cash on this as well.

That was a bummer when Dale Jr. got wrecked as he was leading.

Bad day for Harvick and Dale Jr, as both got caught up in wrecks.

And Jr was leading the race at the time of that crash!  :evil:

That was back on January 10.

Saw that when I first posted the article. No one posted it sooner.

His short tenures on both SNL and SCTV, both essentially replacing better known cast members as well (the last remaining original Not Ready for Prime Time Plays left right before he came on, he landed in Mellonville during the season John Candy and Catherine O'Hara sat out) probably kept him from being better known.  Still his contributions to both shows should be applauded.

Would that seem to be any deliberateness on the producers' part to make the correct prices of the 2 preliminary prizes too hard, or just plain bad luck on the contestants' part?  Either way, since there's no advance rhyme or reason as to which key's where on the rack, at least as far as I can tell, whether they wipe out after the small prizes is definitely more dumb luck than anything.
