I did not, but it doesn't surprise me. Wheel of Fortune host and letter-touching-lady are two jobs that don't really seem like you have to be sober. It's probably better, but not required, like pants.

I did. I'm not all that surprised either, honestly. Definitely makes sense in retrospect

I remember Vanna sometimes standing there for a few seconds before realizing she needed to turn the letters but I chalked it up to ditziness. I also remember Pat being extremely goofy but it didn't occur to me that either of them could be drunk.

After viewing several episodes I thought the contestants were drunk...geez people, it's English!

Yeah, it really didn't surprise me. In that interview Pat said they don't do it anymore but I wonder if that might not be true. I certainly would explain Pat seeming to "phone it in" for the past couple of years, he's just drunk!

I would have to be drunk to watch that show. How has it stayed on the air so long? The contestants yelling "BIG MONEY" and Pat saying "SHHHH" drives me insane. When I was in Vegas, one of the casino employees said the sounds from the Wheel of Fortune slot machines drove them crazy so they called them the "Wheel of Torture". IMO, it was a good description!

@floydie7: Or maybe it seems like he's phoning it in because he's not drunk!

@missellienc: Love the WoF slots! Also Monte Carlo & Cash Wheel.

Darn, the mods removed my Margaritaville tag.

I saw a glimpse of the story on one of the major cable news channels, and the headline on the screen made it seem like it was a major scandal... Jesus, it's a TV show that septuagenarians watch before bed. It's not like Pat and Vanna are air traffic controllers or something. Also, is WoF even still on the air?

If this was when they loaded prizes on the set, it had to be prior to January 1991. After 20 years, give them a break. This isn't news, it's a memoir.

@unoriginal26: I watched your epic video and ADS started to kick in at around the 1:30 mark. By 2:00 I was beginning to suspect that you posted the wrong link by mistake. "OK, it's trance music" I thought to myself and my mind started to wander... thinking about how trance music is really just an updated form of acid rock and remembering what it was like to drop some blotter and listen to trippy music back in the ole' college daze.

I wondered if it was a similar experience for today's ecstasy-fueled ravers who twist and gyrate to pulsing, synthesized beats surrounded by psychedelic mood lighting. I wondered if any of them have ever considered that they are participating in a modern-day tribal ritual not unlike those that have gone on since the dawn of man.

Then, I thought... "is this video still playing?" when it suddenly hit me.

You can sing PANTS, PANTS, PANTS, PANTS! I AIN'T GOT NO PANTS! to the beat of the music! That must be what all the cool club kids do these days.

@chipgreen: I'm sorry pants are required in your household.

@unoriginal26: I was going to add "now I feel old" at the end of my response but ran out of letters. Too bad Pat and Vanna weren't here, maybe I could have bought a vowel.
