Reaching the age of 75 is monumental and serves as a premium time for life reflection. Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak notes this and (definitely not jokingly) mentions considering a presidential run.
Taking to Twitter in a totally serious manner on his birthday today, Sajak recently tweeted about retirement and his upcoming plans. Among them is a run for the United States presidency.
“Now that I’ve reached 75, and with retirement a couple of years off, I’ll be the perfect age for a presidential run. Or a wood carving career. Haven’t made up my mind yet,” the tweet reads.
Sajak fans are divided on the issue: woodcarver or the president? “Well-crafted, Mr. Sajak. I say go for both. (Good luck in the meantime as you continue with whittling away at that decision),” one user replied. “One is a worthwhile endeavor that allows you to create and shape ideas that could affect people for a long time. The other is POTUS,” another said.
How about the best of both worlds? A president who carves wood on the side? “Be the first modern prez that does wood carving instead of golfing,” someone suggests. “Can you be a presidential woodcarver?” another jokingly states.
Could we get #Sajak2024 trending? I’m inclined to believe so.
Pat Sajak Wonders if Braves in the World Series is MLB ‘Karma’
Pat Sajak does much more than host Wheel of Fortune. In his spare time, he has a plethora of hobbies and interests, one of which is baseball. Upon hearing the Atlanta Braves are going to the 2021 World Series, he had some cheeky words to say, asking if it was “karma” for the league.
Being a Los Angeles Dodgers fan, he was no doubt upset the Braves bested them to go to the World Series. However, his words on Twitter regarding the matter were more about the MLB than the Braves themselves. “MLB All-Star Game karma?” a tweet of his simply read.
The reference here is the MLB deciding to move this year’s All-Star game to Colorado’s Coors Field. Previously in Atlanta’s Truist Park, controversial voting laws prompted the locale change. ESPN shared a statement from the Braves who apparently weren’t too happy about the decision either.
“This was neither our decision nor our recommendation,” the statement began. “And we are saddened that fans will not be able to see this event in our city. The Braves organization will continue to stress the importance of equal voting opportunities and we had hoped our city could use this event as a platform to enhance the discussion. Our city has always been known as a uniter in divided times and we will miss the opportunity to address issues that are important to our community.”
Maybe Sajak’s presidential run will help ease the pain of the Dodgers losing.
