It would be inappropriate to make "whammy" jokes

Both PYL and Whammy are great shows, maybe my favorite game shows of all-time. Tomarken was a great host....guided the show well and threw in some self-deprecating humor now and then. Good stuff.

R.I.P. Very sad news. That always was my favorite game show and he certainly looked like he enjoyed that gig. :,-(

Anyway, RIP. :,-( .


Oh man this is awful news. I was JUST reading about that whole scandal like less than a week ago. Press Yor Luck was my favorite game show ever. Now it will sadden me when I watch it on GSN. Great host. Probably the most underrated and show and host of all time.

He and his wife will be missed. :,-(

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
