Rod Roddy

I’d like to take a moment to mark the passing of Rod Roddy, whose “Come on down!” entertained me for years.

I don’t think the show will be the same without him, really. A few months ago I tuned in, and there was some Generic Announcer Guy on in Rod’s place. It just felt… odd.

TPIR was probably my favorite game show when I was a kid. I used to make a “home version” out of paper, and let my grandmother be my sole contestant. The paper versions of Plinko and the Big Wheel were something else, let me tell you.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
