R.I.P. PETER TOMARKEN

6

Who is Peter Tomarken? One phrase will give it away: “No whammies! No whammies! STOP!”

He was the affable host of the gameshow “Press Your Luck”. I was remiss in not mentioning his passing the other day. That show was revolutionary to an extent. They had that whammy guy with his different animations, performing his different moves that would make your money total disappear. Tomarken did a great job on that show and both he and the show have a unique place in gameshow history.

This Monday, while working as an “Angel of Mercy” pilot, he was killed along with his wife when their small plane crashed off the coast of Santa Monica, California. They were on their way to San Diego to pick up a cancer patient. He was 63 years old. May the Tomarkens rest in peace.

    Did you enter Tim’s bracket challenge at ESPN? You certainly have some interesting picks here.

    Three of your “upsets” are 9 seeds over 8′s–way to go out on a limb. But I do like most of those picks.

    I’ve filled out 2 brackets and can’t seem to arrive without Gonzaga and UConn in the Final 4 myself.

    Apparently I think the winner of the Texas-Duke regional final will be the National Champion, coz that’s how I’ve picked: I have Duke winning in one (the one in which I am competing with The Zoner) and Texas in another. So if that isn’t the Regional Final in Atlanta, I’ll be in bad shape.

    upsets in name only.

    Now I am hurt. Or not.

    That’s what’s great about this year–not that the fav always wins—but there is no clear cut favorite.

    All of this ga-ga over Gonzaga. Sweet 16, probably. But they won’t get to the Elite 8.

    Peter Tomarken was such a great man and I hope that he is at peace and that he is not sad. I have a website in his memory on MSN and I hope to keep it up for years to come… He was so cool!
