Important Announcement

Nov. 19th 2009

Hello,

I finally came to a decision I considered over the summer: resigning from The Price is Right Blog. Ever since Year 36, I have not enjoyed the show like I did in the past and posting about the show was becoming less enjoyable. I had given the show another chance, but Year 37 left me with bad feelings about the show and the first show of Year 38 helped in my decision. Coincidentally my local station interrupted the first show of Year 38 with a short report of a flash flood watch for counties neighboring my home county.

I was glad to help with The Price is Right Blog over the past few years, but after all the changes made to the show and the changes in my life, I need to be more concerned about my physical and emotional well being. Colin and Jesse, thank you for giving me the chance to work with you and pardon me for announcing my resignation on a Thursday. I hope this weblog continues with someone who is still dedicated to “The Price is Right” and capable of posting recapitulations Monday through Friday. Good day!
