I can thank Millionaire for opening up the world of movies for me. Early on, I decided I better see The Godfather and things snowballed from there.

Plus I got to meet various Bored peeps along the way.

Even though I hadn't watched the show in years, I am sorry to see it canceled. I had, of course, hoped for a 20th anniversary special on primetime, and I thought the syndicated version might stop that from happening.

I was looking back at my Facebook photos the other day, and I came across this picture of many of us waiting to get into one of the 10th anniversary tapings: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater

It's hard to believe that that was 10 years ago. It is also hard to believe that my own Millionaire appearance was 18 years ago now. Time really does fly...

Some familiar faces there! Going on 15 years since my time in the seat. Unfathomable.

I just can't believe the show premiered 20 years ago in August.

I remember playing my first few phone games from a pay phone on campus where I was getting my MBA.

Imagine that- the show premiered when pay phones were still a thing.
