TPiRecap: 29 February 2012 (Leap Day Spectacular... ish)


It's a Price is Right so special, we can only have one every four years... a Februrary 29th Spectacular!

...Okay, so, it's not a Very Special Episode or anything like that, but hey, that's what idiots like me are here for, right? ;^)

As outdoor kitchen islands go, this one was actually a cheapie -- just cheap enough, in fact, to play into the common misconcoption stage players seem to have that they are cheap! That, and $4,800 jupmed out immediately from this setup.

It is company policy here at TPiRecap Towers that the Recapper-in-Chief shall never root against a stage player no matter what. Thus it shall be with Justin. However, as someone who has no great love for THE Ohio State University -- which is actually a bit like saying my stomach has no great love for tapeworms, but I'm trying to be diplomatic here -- I must admit that Justin's not out to a great start with the "O-H! I-O!" chant.

1 Right Price: $2297
  1. Panasonic 55" 3D plasma HDTV w/glasses
  2. Lance Powersports Cali Classic motor scooter

Trying something different with this layout... make it a bit more TV-accurate. Let's see how it flies:

Good start to the day... so far, I caution myself.

He may have been a bit slower at it than I'd like, but it wasn't that difficult to figure out today -- and there's that old saying, you can't argue with success!
