Game Show Losers

Game Show Losers - The Fox game show Million Dollar Money Drop got off to an ominous beginning last Monday, when a couple lost $800,000 betting on an answer that was mistakenly called wrong. After first standing by the initial judgment and coming across like giant meanies at holiday time, the network has now relented and said that Brittani Mayti and Gabe Okoye will be invited back to compete when the show returns.

The problem arose when the dating couple was asked which product was first sold in stores: the Sony Walkman or Post-it Notes. With $880,000 remaining in their pot, the pair chose to bet a much greater share, $800,000, on the answer Post-it Notes, which was then called incorrect. They lost their remaining money on a subsequent question. However, it turned out that there was more ambiguity in the answer than the producers had realized, because Post-it Notes had been sold in a few test markets in the late 1970s, before the introduction of the Walkman.

The Fox etwork owes the ouple and the people of the US a apology plus they owe the coupl $800,000. Unless they dop e show sponsors should pull their sponsorship . If the sponsors don't the peopkle should boycott the sponsors products. Sometime the only way to get across to crooks like this is by costing hem money. They have shown that they have no ethics or morals.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
