Boston is currently the hub of The Wheel–“Wheel of Fortune” that is. According to WBZ, the show recently wrapped up a 15-episode run at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center. The three weeks of shows–scheduled to air in November–are reportedly all Beantown-centric: Historic Boston, College Week, and Boston’s Got Game. The Boston Globe explained that bringing the show here was an attempt to set Boston’s economic wheels in motion: “Officials say the ‘Wheel’ will be a televised postcard to the rest of the country when it airs on 211 affiliates.”
Sajak will return to our beloved Beantown with his son, Patrick, on New Years Day to catch the Bruins take on (read: take down) the Washington Flyers in the Winter Classic at Fenway Park. An avid hockey fan, the host holds season tickets to the Washington Capitals and the L.A. Kings, but something tells us that the Bruins logo is a better fit for the captain behind The Wheel.
