TPiRecap: 26 June 2014

Gonna try to blast through this one today; USA-Germany kicks off at noon (EDT) and I want to make sure this is finished as close to the off as I can get it. Waiting till after the game is inadvisable; if Team USA wins or otherwise advances, I'll be too hyped to focus on Price much. If they don't, I'll be too depressed. I almost decided to take today off, but I figured, this close to the end of the season, that might be bad form, so here I am.

Let's do this...

Major problem on that last SP -- the door was off its hinges and you could see just enough red behind the 4 to know that was the one to avoid. (Eunice, I'm assuming, didn't notice it, which explains why she picked it anyway.) They've got to be very careful about that, lest it incur the wrath of S&P.

After those SPs, it almost feels lucky she managed to take that much from the board. 8^/

  1. So, let's see...last week we had a nearly-$28,000 Challenger and a nearly-$31,000 Ford Explorer, and this week, we've had a Chevy Equinox, a Lexus, a slightly higher-end Toyota Tacoma, and a Scion sportscar (which I thought they didn't make). IMO, these past two weeks have been everything the season premiere and 8,000th episode should've been!

    And I thought South Africa's country code was ".za".

    1. It is, and I thought that's what I had written. Fixed.

    2. Alex, season premieres and milestone episodes (like the 8,000th) do not mean bigger prizes.

      Anyway, what a win by James in this episode!
