He will always have my deepest respect for his conviction to the cause of animal rights.

I think Bob realized that he can STILL get younger chicks with all the money he has without being on TPIW. Did I just type what I was thinking?

he wasn't exactly a gentleman in some respects, from what i've heard, but he was well respected in the industry. i never met him, but i never heard anything bad through the grapevines from the price is right crew (except for the models, perhaps ). everyone else who worked with him liked him.

i'm sure it'll be a big deal when he tapes his final show out in tv city in l.a..

i don't think the show will survive very long without him, either.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Oh believe me I do think of all the happy times and thats what gets me through. However, whenever I hear that theme song it brings an ache to my heart that I'd rather avoid.

I was home sick yesterday and watched. Poor Bob was almost knocked to the floor by a very large and overexcited contestant who had just won a car. Later she won another in the Showdown and Bob ran for his life!

I have always wanted to be on and once watched a documentary on some lady whose whole life's mission was to be a contestant. She even memorized prices. Yet, she was not chosen and they managed, once again, to choose some poor dingdongs who didn't grasp how the show worked. Our lady was crushed, but held up as best as she could.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Poor Bob has ran for his life so many times. Especially from Samoan women lol.
