Phish Teases on Wheel of Fortune
Phish references continue to pop up in the mainstream media. In 2012 alone, the Vermont Quartet were referenced on The Office, Trey Anastasio was a clue on Jeopardy and, of course, the band forged a close relationship with Justin Bieber.
On Christmas Eve, Phish were also name-checked on Wheel of Fortune. Show host Pat Sajak interviewed contestant Berkeley Ramsbottom Cox about her love of Phish at the start of the show. During her brief interview segment, Cox referenced her dogs Minnie, Harpua and Fluffhead, mentioned that she has seen 51 Phish shows and said that she hoped to spend her winnings attending more shows. Sajak’s response was that it “was good to have a, um, goal.” Though Cox did not win, she did walk away with almost $7,000.
