    Press Your Luck - In 1984, ice cream truck driver Michael Larson discovered with the help of his VCR’s pause button that the movements of the board weren't random but could be memorized. After nervously landing on a Whammy on his 1st attempt he spun 45x's without hitting another. He broke the bank, clearing $ 110,000 a record that still stands. It was determined there was no rule against memorizing but he was not invited back & the board was reprogrammed.

Another favorite game show of mine was Pyramid! It is a television game show which has aired several versions. The original series, The $10,000 Pyramid, debuted March 26, 1973. Dick Clark is the host most commonly associated with the show, having hosted most incarnations of it from 1973–1988. The 10,000 Pyramid show hosted by Dick Clark is the one I remember most...it first came on TV while I was in high school.
