  1. RIP, Bob.

    On of my favorite movie scenes is when he and Adam Sandler fight in “Happy Gilmore”–cracks me up every time I watch it.

  2. “as close as possible” for certain values of “possible”?
    December 12, 1923 – August 26, 2023 leaves out quite a few days… e.g. Prince Philip was closer.
    Of course, if you only count full years…

    • Louis is joking about something that happens on the show “The Price is Right.” On that show, there are two “Showcase Showdowns” where the competitors spin a wheel and try to get to one dollar without going over. Whoever gets that closest gets to try to win a boatload of prizes in the showcase at the end of the episode. Two winners get to compete for the showcases. If someone spins one dollar, they win and get $1,000.00; if they get to one dollar by adding the results of two spins, I do not think they get the $1,000.00.

      Louis does get it wrong because Bob could have still “won” at 100.

      Yes, I watched too much “The Price is Right” as a kid.
