RIP Bob Barker

I loved game shows as a kid. Jeopardy. Press Your Luck. Wheel of Fortune. But perhaps none was better than The Price is Right. I remember coming in from playing outside in and around Dunlap Lake in the summertime to watch Bob Barker give away cars and vacations and kitchen sets. He solidified his legend by appearing in Adam Sandler’s Happy Gilmore. Barker has died at age 99 of Alzheimer’s, but he will live on forever as the guy who told us all to “come on down, you’re the next contestant …”
