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.
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.
