Million Dollar Money Drop Couple Invited Back

Million Dollar Money Drop Couple Invited Back - It seems like every few months one of the networks trots out a brand new, shiny game show where contestants compete for ludicrous amounts of money. The newest of the new is Fox’s Million Dollar Money Drop, and as these things go, this one is strangely addicting. Here’s the basic plot. The contestants are given a million dollars. They are then asked seven multiple choice questions one at a time. For each, they must place all of the money a top one or more answers. One time runs out, the bottom drops out of the incorrect answers, leaving only the money remaining atop the correct answer. Sounds awesome, right? Unfortunately, the less than a week old game show is already beset by controversy.

Million Dollar Money Drop Couple Invited Back

According to The Chicago Sun-Times, Gabe Okoye and his girlfriend Brittany May, contestants on Monday’s premiere episode, were sent home after they (in)correctly answered the following question: which went on sale to the general public first: Sony’s Walkman, Post-It Notes or The Macintosh computer? The couple guessed Post-Its and were given the boot, but in reality, Post-Its hit the market a full two years (1977) before the Walkman (1979).

After an internet firestorm, Fox has finally addressed the snafu publically, offering the pair a chance to play again. It’s unclear whether they’ll take Fox up on the offer, but it’s hard to imagine anyone turning down a chance to win a million dollars in less than an hour.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

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.
