Steelers Fan Bids $69 on ‘The Price Is Right’, Wins

PITTSBURGH SPORTS AND MINI PONIES trots out a fun little story about Dr. Michael Bummer. The good doc is a Pittsburgh-area gynecologist and avid Steelers fan. And he recently made the trip out west to CBS Television City to appear on “The Price Is Right” - decked out in a Steelers jersey.

Steelers Fan The Price Is Right

During the show, Bummer was asked to bid on a lovely diamond necklace. Since he was the last of the four contestants to give his answer, Dr. Mike could have gone the safe & easy (and really annoying) route of bidding $1. But he decided to get clever - and bid $69, dude!

And he won. Video is after the jump.



It’s hard to decide what’s funniest about this bid-ness:

• The guy is a Steelers fan & gynecologist.

• The guy is a Steelers fan & gynecologist with the name Dr. Michael Bummer.

• The guy is a Steelers fan & gynecologist with the name Dr. Michael Bummer who shouts out “69!” on national television.

• Instead of shelling out $200 for a personalized jersey, he puts tape on the back of the nameplate & scribbles in “Dr. Bummer”. Is business really that bad, Doc?

Drew Carey’s uncontrollable laughing fit. Because we know Drew loves those dirty jokes.
