Pat Sajak is the Frickin' Man
Posted May 9, 2011 - 10:20:17

Pat Sajak rips open his shirtSo I have a confession to make: Lately Crysta and I have really gotten into watching Wheel of Fortune. It started out just because it was the only thing on TV that wasn't terrible at 7 o'clock now that we had extremely limited cable channels, but over time the show has grown on me so much... that now we're actually watching it on purpose.

And what it's revealed to me, over time, is that Pat Sajak is actually really, really awesome.

I mean, the man just says stuff. He makes jokes I don't expect him to, and he just smirks and gets away with it. I don't have any other way to react to it other than to mentally elevate Pat Sajak to deity-level status.

I guess I always had a different image of him growing up -- I mean, my brain always associated Wheel of Fortune with old people, soccer moms and mundane inanity. I always thought the show was merely one more watered down example of television tailored to be as inoffensive as possible, removing any sense of entertainment for the sake of making advertisers and old ladies happy.

But man, was I wrong.

Instead, it merely appears to be that mild, and it uses this as a guise to let Pat Sajak do whatever the hell he wants. And you know what? I thoroughly approve of this. You might not expect something subversive when you tune into Wheel of Fortune, but you're sure going to get it. I mean, Pat Sajak has an edge, and it's about time people from my generation actually noticed.

So this is my message to you, eighteen to thirty-four year olds of America: You may not know this, but Pat Sajak is flippin' awesome. He's about a thousand times cooler than you will ever hope to be, and don't you ever forget it.

Because Pat Sajak is the Frickin' Man.

I know he's Awesome. I always watched it when it was on because I like CBS news. I actually watch the show and can figure the puzzles out a lot of times.

Yeah I know people my age should watch him a bit more. He's definitely livelier than Alex Trubek, now that guy has no life in  him.
I actually really like Alex Trebek...
Oh good I'm 35...I don't fit into this mold...I'll stick with watching Ru Paul :P
