    Well, have you? I don't mean at a taping. I mean actually been a contestant on any game show of the past? Let's hear about it!

    Lessee - I tried out for "Classic Concentration", "Wheel Of Fortune", "Trump Card" and I think one other. Haven't made it past tryouts yet.

    Supposedly my fiancee will be going on Wheel Of Fortune, she made the final cut and apparently they liked her. She better win, she's pretty damn good at it. I despise the show though, I'll like it if she wins $25,000 though!

    A friend of a friend of mine works for WB and says that he saw DLR on Hollywood Squares, being taped this Tuesday...

    Seriously, my old roommate and I were sitting in the apartment one morning watching The Price Is Right. Now, it was a little odd for either of us to be watching tv in the morning. Even stranger to both be sitting there at the same time. But the really strange thing is when my roomie says "Holy shit, I went to high school with that guy!" The guy got as far as spinning the big wheel.

    I wish I would have the opportuntiy to go on Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune. The closest connection to me and game shows is:

    My English teacher from Sophomore year of High School, FRANK SPANGENBERG,is in the Guiness Book of World Records as the highest Earning contestent ever on the show. His record still stands since his appearence in 1991, I believe. When I started college in 1989, Frank left Xavier High School to become a New York City Transit cop. Go figure? The salary was much higher.

    So sorry! I failed to mention the show. Frank Spangenberg holds that record on "Jeopardy!"

    How much did he win Georgie?

    I think they Wheel Of Fortune tapes weeks before it appears on TV, so if she sucks and loses, I'm not going to tell you guys to watch.

    I wish I could remember the exact total Brett. His name actually came up not too long ago by Alex Trebek during the show. Someone was on a winning streak that was very similar, and only to jinx it, Alex said," The last time someone won this much in two days, they ended up in the Guiness Book for most money won on Jeopardy when they finally left the studio." "Frank Spangenberg, you know who you are." ( The contestent lost the next day during Final Jeopardy.)

    That is awesome about your Fiancee, Brett! Win or Lose, we will all be behind her! Please let us know! I really hope she nails it down!

    I remember reading about that...I think he won something like $175k, which would of course buy 5 or 6 Wolfgangs.
