As today is Lincoln's Birthday, the Cover Up gag is appropriately themed -- from left to right, we have a Lincoln-head penny, a log cabin, the famous stovepipe hat, a 36-star American flag, and the Lincoln Memorial.

They cue up the Push Over/Line em Up think music again...

I suspect he was trying to use a form of the Cover Up Strategy™ on this...

...Well now, this is interesting. We know he's gonna get up to two more shots at it, since the hundreds digit is now obvious, so he really has a 2:3 chance of winning that Fusion. Could things be looking up?

YES! I finally get to roll out my new graphic for this! Check it out:

Neat, huh? Finally got tired of dealing with tables that didn't space properly and random spaces screwing with the other formatting, so this seemed the most logical solution.

Now let's see this in action... after Drew accidentally pulls the feather off the quill, that is... ;^)

Would've been nice to inagurate that with a win, but... well, at least you can see how the "VOID" works. Ah well.

My gut instinct is to say the exercise bike is $799. But we'll see.

So the only blemish on our record today is Check Game. Oddly enough, I'm okay with that, but that might just be because Cover Up was won too...

  1. My area had nearly the entire show interrupted, it got through the 6 games and both showdowns. it chose not to run the showcases, because of pax coverage, watching the show myself was compromised.

    was recapping the show compromised for you
