Luke’s tripled up after RECOVERING A FUMBLE.

Round 1: FOOD & DRINK

His first actions are a $650 T, four E’s and three A’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to take away the leftover $150. Second, Melissa calls up a $1,400 pair of R’s, but the other normal BANKRUPT takes it right back. Third, Kevin duds out on the spot w/ N. Luke then gets the WC w/ two S’s and the SS wedge w/ two P’s…

Mystery/Crossword Round: HERE KITTY, KITTY!

Melissa gets the gift tag right away w/ S, buys three A’s, but runs into the same BANKRUPT Luke got in the last round to lose $1,250 cash & GT. Second in Kevin’s future are an $800 C, I, O, two $650 N’s, and the last vowel of E, followed by the 1/2 CAR near $900, a $3,500 R, but then a baddie of G to leave $5,350 sitting there. Luke then inserts a $2,700 trio of P’s…

    When are we gonna get a BR win? A BR losing week is what we got thanks to a terrible BR resulting in an another weak show. We seriously need a BR win tomorrow or we could be looking at a worst week ever.
