    I just realized while watching Wheel of Fortune, that I can't remember a time when this show was NOT on. Seriously how long has it been? Wow.

    Pat Sajak was the local weatherman back in the late 70's in Los Angeles.
    He was up against Dr. George Fischbeck on another channel.
    Dr. George made the weather interesting. He was like the best school teacher you ever had.
    Pat Sajak was just silly. Maybe that's why he got the game show job.

    Interesting. I always wondered if he ever got it on with Vanna...he's pretty goofy looking though.:(

    Well, technically she stopped turning the letters in 1997, when the show started using touch screens.

    No doubt Vanna has been a mainstay on the program. Pat & Vanna just have this nonexistent silly chemistry towards the end of the show...then, time to hit the books and study up! Don't forget the Saturday bath!

    I read somewhere that Pat and Vanna would get drunk as skunks before the show.

    You apparently have access to the internet.

    True fact tangent: Pat lives in my hometown, Severna Park MD, in a gated community, and has been spotted at Safeway there.

    As she's gotten older she's had problems with vowel movements.



    -Thank you. Really. Thank. You

    Pat was a weatherman in Los Angeles before Wheel and looked angry sad depressed and miserables with huge dark bags under his eyes .

    Another true fact: I had the Vanna White Playboy issue, which has to be about 30 years old too.

    I wonder how many miles she has walked in front of those letters during her entire career. Someone must be able to come up with that number!

    I hate that she has to creepily stare and smile at you on her walk to the letterboard. I do admit, I'm a Wheel Watcher.

    When my son was little and first learned to walk by hanging on to the edge of furniture he would follow Vanna back and forth as she turned the letters!
