TPiRecap: 31 March 2011 (The Brice is Right Edition)


Sorry about yesterday. I'm not at liberty to talk about it, but let's just say that something came up at the last minute to keep me from being able to do a recap in a timely fashion. It's all squared away now though, so it's back to business as (un)usual today.

Also don't forget, tomorrow is the first of April. I'll just put that on the table...

Plinko:

Minor Set Change: I don't know if this is the first time they've done it, or if this has been around for a while and I'm only now noticing it, but there's now a curlicue $ on the scoreboard in front of the plasma display. It definitely wasn't there when the new Plinko set debuted earlier this season.

"Ugly" is the only word to describe this. This should've been a Pay the Rent lineup.

Drew's IP:
He's getting better... this one was straight enough and long enough, but just a teense too far off-center.

Craig's first attempt:
Long enough and straight enough... but too hard! The ball literally caroms out of the cup. That hurts.

Craig's second attempt:
Totally botched this time -- way off-center. LOSS

One of the more painful losses in this game in quite a while. He had it!
