dear pat sajak,

so a funny thing happened this evening: pat sajak commented on my last blog. yes, the real pat sajak. at first, i was skeptical. i thought "this has to be fake. no way pat sajak has the time to comment on my blog. it's gotta be an imposter."

but then, since i am a detective, i got to the bottom of it...

i checked my sitemeter's recent history by location.

second listing down: baltimore, maryland. that one had to be the source of the comment because the one before it was my own visit from manhattan, ks.

then i checked his profile on wikipedia to discover the following line: "The couple splits time between Severna Park, Maryland, and Manhattan Beach, California."

severna park is 20 miles south of baltimore.

so unless there is someone in pat sajak's hometown posing as the man himself, the commenter was indeed the real pat sajak.

gulp. holy smokes.

pat, i am seriously hoping that you will read this follow-up blog as well. i mean no disrespect to your life as a game show host. clearly you worked hard to achieve the life you have attained and it was wrong of me to reduce your hard work to sheer luck. my hope is that you'll accept my apology - because i also must inform you of the following four facts:

1. wheel of fortune is my absolute favorite television show. i have watched it since i was a small child. my favorite episode of all time: when there was a contestant named "A". that's probably been 15 years ago now.
2. i have applied to be on your show three different times. i even claimed that my favorite nascar driver was jeff gordon in an attempt to make it on to "nascar week". i hate nascar.
3. i have officially joined the Wheel Watchers Club. my SpinID is AC6480822.
4. i am a generally nice person. in fact, i found out today that there is a facebook application called "nicest person" and i am currently leading in votes among my friends. i will admit, if there was an application called "most conceted person" i'd be in the running for that as well.

i hope you were not offended by my previous post pat. you (as well as vanna and the show itself) have been very important to my evening ritual for many many years, and it pains me to think that i have insulted my favorite show's host.

so with great sincerity i say, i'm sorry. i hope this blog finds you well. see you tomorrow night at 6:30 PM CST.

-ap.

p.s. - i suppose it wouldn't hurt to ask - is there any way you could pull some strings to get me on the show? it would be a dream come true. thanks so much.

two things:

1. Pat Sajak didn't comment on your last post. He punked you.

2. I'm a little offended that your favorite episode didn't star..you know...me.

Dude... Pat Sajak told you to stop whining. That is the coolest thing ever.

The best one I ever got was when Andrew Jones commented on mine... but most people don't even know who he is.

Anyway... I'm so incredibly jealous...

PLEASE LET HIM ON THE SHOW PAT!!!

luke said...

that is super cool, but again, seriously, how did he happen to come upon your entry?

i really think he just googles his name constantly. it's the only explanation. i love wheel of fortune, but come on. i guess now my question about what game show hosts do the other 23 1/2 hours of the day is now answered....

I cannot get over this! I just relayed this to my coworkers and still am in shock!

THAT IS AWESOME!!!

I think your blog-related brush with celebrity just blew mine out of the water.

Thanks a lot, JERK!

Just kidding, that is awesome. I wish there was a way to confirm 100%.

aaaaaaaaaand... no pat.

So now that Pat Sajak commented on your blog, you're done? You've reached the pinnacle, and you can't top it, so you're giving up? Good, I never liked it anyway.
