T for terrible is how Rod starts this round. Sashanna secondly calls up two N’s for $1,200, two E’s, four S’s to add $3,200 and three A’s, but next is R for roadblock. Third, Jerry picks off the SL of five D’s at $700 a pop for $4,500, the leftover vowels of four I’s and two O’s, and a $1,100 pair of L’s, then he sees…
