I remember in the 70's watching American Bandstand and there was a skinny blond dancer who always caught my attention. She was just one of the weekly regulars, but a cute thing. Debbie was her name. Funny how you remember those kind of things.

R.I.P. Dick. You will be missed.

Same here. The race to the top of the pyramid was IMHO the most exciting 60 seconds in television.
Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.

Ya, when the final seconds were ticking down, only a few questions left, and the hands were shoved in the straps to prevent gesturing and blowing it. That was some exciting stuff for me watching when I was younger.
