Family Feud was a memorable experience for the Teicheira family.

When they taped the show last August, they did so with the memory of Daniel Teicheira close to their hearts.

The youngest Teicheira, a record-setting Sierra High football player, was killed in a 2002 automobile accident during the summer of his junior year.

Ryan Teicheira recalled when they were growing up in the household of Nancy and Frank Teicheira, he and his siblings would pretend to play all of the television game shows, including Family Feud.

That dream became a reality.
On Saturday, Ryan and his wife, Jennifer, played host to a viewing party. Included were over 30 friends and family members.

They were joined by older brother Steven Teicheira and his wife, Kelly, and her brother, Joel Valenzuela.

All five played “the Feud” against the Aguirre family of Arizona.

In this case, it wasn’t about winning or losing but just taking part in the popular television game show now celebrating its 30th year.

Unfortunately, they lost to the Aguirre family.

That show aired Friday morning, with the Teicheiras doing their best to hold off from watching it on DVR.

“I was going to wait and see it at the viewing party,” Ryan Teicheira said.

He had received word from many around town about his appearance on Family Feud. “They were all excited for us,” he said.

 According to Kelly Teicheira, they auditioned for Family Feud back in July, with the actual taping taking place about a month later.

“It was such a thrill when we were on stage,” she said earlier this week. “We were nervous.

“The entire experience went by so fast.”
