Storage Wars auctioneers to be on Today Show.....
« on: November 14, 2011, 03:48:23 PM »
....on Tuesday, November 15, 2011.

Chances are they are going to be talking about the pirate treasure recently uncovered in a lkr (see related post in the IN THE NEWS section)

Oh well...a new newbie invasion !

*****

Do a Google search for "pirate treasure found in locker" and you'll get a lot of hits.

Here's one:

Did anyone actually SEE this feature?

I Tivoed the whole thing and all I saw was a promo piece at the 8 a.m. hour (Pacific time) for it to be "coming up".

I didn't see it during that half-hour, and it is now 7 minutes until 9 my time and it hasn't run yet.

If any of you saw it then the only thing I can think is that my local station might have taken a few minutes of extra time for themselves at the 8:25 break for local news AND COMMERCIALS !

I am also Tivoing from 9 a.m. my time to noon.  My station puts Regis on from 9 to 10 and then Hoda and Kathy Lee (hate them) come on from 10 to 11. Can't imagine they would have the feature, but maybe.

Also, maybe there were legal considerations or the feed from the west coast just plain failed somehow.


Let me know if YOU saw it.

It must have gotten bumped, I started watching at 8 am and it never came one. The flashed coming up and it never did.  It was posted on FB that they do not know what happened.

I looked on the web The Today show... Nothing... Searched like 5 times... Nothing.
May not be true... Just boosting the ratings for their show... Hate to see the damage this has caused for ratings...

Well, the Today show wouldn't have run the promo within the morning broadcasting...saying "coming up" if they didn't intend to run it...not just hype for the show.  No, I'm thinking they just decided to give more time to a story like Penn State Paterno or something else; that, or some legality crept in...maybe the doubloon owner creating a fuss.

We'll probably get an answer one way or the other over the next couple of days. On Wednesday they may mention something about it (or even run it).

It looked like a bad unit for $1,100. I wonder what folks saw that made them bid like that.

And $600 for the other one... I am with you would have walked away at @$175... maybe $250.
He was a nob so maybe was just bidding him up on it. Guess he got the last laugh.

I would send each of the 1,949 members here (which excludes me as the 1,950th member) a PayPal payment of $25 so they could buy an auction list. For 1,900 of those people it would be the most profit they would make in this biz !  ;)

Well, it's Wednesday the 16th of Nov, 2011 and the Today show ran this piece today.

It did NOT contain any info (to speak of) on the pirate treasure.

It did contain old clips of the SW show (little person on stilts) and some interviews with Brandi and Barry, Darrell, (Dave somewhat silent).

The person who put together the piece had laryngitis so THAT may have been why the piece was pulled on Tuesday the 15th.  

All in all it was a well-done piece, but look for new NEWBIES to be coming out again based on this...and more members here at the forum !  ;)

You can see the video here:
