TPiRecap: 29 January 2015

Just as a heads-up: I will probably end up having to take Monday off for personal reasons (i.e.: dental appointment). If I do, don't take it personally or anything, and I'll be back on Tuesday no problem.

Michelle's grandfather was on the show in 1989, and according to her won a bumper pool table. Let's see if his descendant can improve on that showing, in a game that was actually around 25+ years ago, Danger Price:
  1. Spinning exercise bike (AL)
  2. Prince Advantage table tennis package (AL)
  3. GE 5-burner gas range (RR)
  4. Sony 60" LED Smart HDTV (RR)

With the posted Danger Price, the TV seems to be the one to steer clear of (-00 price, roughly in the range of most TVs the show has to offer these days).

Danger Price: $2300

Wins are getting very elusive in this game, but we nailed this one!

Luke's an ICU nurse... not quite the same as a doctor, but still, the jokes apply...

  • Hills Bros. French vanilla cappuccino mix (16 oz)
  • Bush's baked beans (16 oz)
  • Birdola Plus bird food
  • Alberto VO5 volumizing shampoo (12.5 fl oz)
  • Sincerely Brigette jalapeƱo & cilantro cheese
  • Degree Men antiperspirant

I'd start with the beans, then go shampoo → antiperspirant → cappuccino → bird food → cheese. But, what do I know?

Reverse those two prices to discover what I usually pay for them. See, the same thing can happen to me that I sometimes complain about (the discount store effect). I never claimed to be perfect...

Drew's Inspiration Putt:
Sinks it, then mimics Babe Ruth calling his shot!

Luke's First Putt:
Too strong and pulled left. The carom avails him not.

Luke's Second Putt:
This time it's not as strong, but it's pulled right and the rebound is too weak to matter. 8^(
LOSS

Man, what's going on with this game lately? Used to be a fairly easy win, but this season the loss column for Holey reads like the win column in past seasons. I guess people don't golf (even of the miniature variety) as much as they used to...

Before today, we've gone eight consecutive episodes without having to banish someone to Leftover Island, but now Sara is on the verge of snapping that streak. Luckily for her and the streak, she bids last now. Is it enough to save her, or will that plane be lifting off with a passenger for the first time in a week and a half?

You mean each of those cameras are only $285? For Sony? I know Sony often makes surprisingly cheap (in terms of price) cameras, but I wouldn't have figured them to be that cheap. This was dirty pool. >_<

  1. "2 for the Price of 1" had a perfect record, until today. So, that means we only have two left this season.
