The Daily Ping

Apple did not consult with us when they named Ping, Ping.

I’m on TV!

About three and a half years ago, Ryan was on TV. I started thinking about his experience with Oprah, and I realized I’ve been on TV just twice to the best of my knowledge.

The most recent time was about the middle of last year, when I went to a White Sox game with Pinger Greg and his friend Marta. We got great seats, right in front of the dugout. And just about anytime a right-handed batter was up, we were on TV. It was a lot of fun, because I could say, “Hey, that’s my fuzzy head!”

But my most popular appearance was, easily, when I was on The Bozo Show. I think I was about 8 or so (not 6 as I recounted in Ryan’s TV Ping,) and was in the front row. A magician pulled a coin out from behind my ear, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I was also sporting an ugly shirt which I won’t detail unless you force me.

Have any of you been on TV? Game shows? Regular news segments?

I was on a cable-access channel in junior high - for the Academic Challenge Bowl. Low budget, but what do you expect in western New York...

Of course, we wiped the floor with the other seven schools in the competition.

Well. since my wife reads the Ping daily, but refuses to comment, I'll comment for her. She was in a TV commercial in high school that ran for several months. The commercial was for an auto dealership and featured the high school band. She was the baton twirler in the band - right out front and center.

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!
