Drew Carey Just Right For ‘Price’

There’s NO WAY Howie Mandel could do it!

Drew Carey’s job as host of daytime game-show The Price Is Right, that is.

Carey shakes hands, often, gets squeezed … HARD! and seems to love every second of it.

The former improv and comedy star is EXCELLENT in this role, which would be no work for a germa-phobe like Mandel.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just that Carey seems kind, decent and genuine for an entire 60 minutes as ringmaster of ‘Price’, which is no mean feat.

People are constantly yelling and screaming their bids for products from popcorn to cars —the format hasn’t changed from when Bob Barker more coolly hosted the program—and Carey must deftly keep the show moving.

The quick-thinking comedian, the show’s host for five years has to roll with things too,  like the woman who had a t-shirt on that read “Drew’s for real, now let’s make a deal!”

Carey joked about bouncing her from the show and the announcer referred to Drew as “Wayne”, a reference to ‘Deal’ host Wayne Brady.

But Carey certainly is the terrific host of The Price is Right.

And that’s easy to deal with.

Missing Sammy Davis Jr., Twinkies
I just noticed that the late, great Sammy Davis Jr's birthday, Dec. 8, came and went over the weekend. I miss the talented man, who broke down racial barriers through high great singing, dancing and even acting skills. Yes, even the latter, as judged by his appearance on the TV classic "All in

On Thin Ice: Are NHL Owners Bargaining In Good Faith With Players?
I'm a strange 'cat', I'll admit it. Just ab0ut completely broke all the time, yet I am as conservative as the day is long. And I always will be. In a similar way, I have always been among the working middle class, or poor, lol, but tend to see things in the owner's point of view in many res
