TMZ is reporting that at around 1pm yesterday, a fire crew rushed to 94-year-old Bob Barker’s house in Los Angeles after he reported some major back pain. For those wondering, no – I don’t believe he slipped on a Plinko chip. Bob woke up with a messed-up back, and his family called professionals to bring him to the hospital. Bob was seen being wheeled into the hospital on a stretcher. Bob was sitting up and seemed responsive.
Bob’s business manager William Prappas tells USA Today that Bob was still being evaluated on Monday evening, that he was awake, alert, and more comfortable than when he arrived: “Hopefully he’ll be back home soon.”
TMZ says Bob was just at the doctor last week for a follow-up visit to a fall he had in July 2017. Bob hit his head after taking a tumble in his bathroom, but he was fine after a quick trip to the hospital.
Death probably isn’t ready to take Bob just yet. Death flashed back to the golf course fight scene in Happy Gilmore and thought, “His back, huh? So you’re saying his fists are still good. Yeah, I’m not about to get my ass whooped as he calls me a bitch.”
