FUN FRIDAY: "Goliath" Debuts At Six Flags Great America

Fun Friday: "New Baby Buggy"

I am a huge fan of "Wheel Of Fortune."  I remember watching it every night at 6:30 as a kid while my family ate dinner together.  I still love it.  I am good with words (go figure), so it's always fun to try to see if I can guess the puzzle before the contestants.  Sometimes I can...this time - NO WAY!  This guy was amazing!  Hardly anything to choose from, then BOOM!  Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BobNg1-CSH4
