The story of a guy who went to LA with one goal in mind, get somebody from his party into Contestants Row on The Price is Right.

Five more years for me to achieve one of my life's goals. I just hope the game isn't Plinko. I'd probably have to take Rod hostage or send in the Samoans.
Effective Web Design and the Tao of Plinko all this time I have been reading the wrong web sites to figure out the web. What I needed to be doing was spending some quality time with Bob Barker and friends on The Price is Right! Oh yeah, rumor has it that Bob Barker is set to retire next season (the shows 30th).
