Bob Barker Has Passed at the Age of 99

I have always enjoyed watching, "The Price is Right." Drew Carey took over hosting back in 2007, but before that, the long, longtime host was Bob Barker. The man was telegenic and charismatic. He was an outspoken advocate against animal cruelty. He had some scandals back in the 90s relating to relationships with models on the show but he weathered that controversy to have quite the career and a whole bunch of people who spoke of him fondly. I'm speaking in the past tense as Bob Barker just passed at the age of 99. He was a fun dude and will be missed. We'll always have hours of television featuring him and one of the funniest scenes in the movie, "Happy Gilmore," where he and Adam Sandler's character get into a brawl at a charity golf tournament. He will be missed.
