Oddly, expanding on my comments yesterday regarding Pathfinder, the backlit display on Side by Side is not faintly visible to the HD viewer in its "off" state (at least not to me). For a moment I thought I did see something, but it was just a shadow across the display.

Ah well. We do still have a few other games that could go undefeated, but of course four weeks in is hardly the time to be pointing that out. (So why am I doing it anyway? Because I'm a moron, of course!) ;^)

The vultures will dine tonight for certain, but we could at least reduce their meal to a single entrée if either Samuel or Rodolfo get their bidding act together; the latter does have the last-bid advantage. Will it work out for either of them?

Actually, that spin is a bit odd... we never actually saw it. It's not due to a news break-in (local or national) or anything like that, either. As it turns out, a technical problem on the set led to a situation where Rosa took her first spin, which landed on an 85... but the cameras weren't rolling when everyone involved thought they were! Rather than reset the Wheel and start things over, since Rosa landed on a good number they gave her the option of keeping that spin once the cameras were back on line, which as you can see she did. They do let her get her shout-outs in, though.
She almost takes that second spin anyway! Drew stops her from making the boneheaded move of all time, though.
