Board games based on books or movies, I get.

Movies based on board games… You’re pushing your luck.

A book based on a board game? Especially this board game?

Um.

…maybe not.


So I started a sub-blog called, “rich likes games.”

This is where I will discuss games, as well as other games.

Here: games.richsommer.com


This is the first of what I hope will be a series of segments featured on G4’s Attack of the Show, where I talk about board games.

I cannot say how excited I am that this exists.


I accepted an invitation to discuss “sports” on The Next Round with Scoop Jackson.

Why did I accept the offer, you ask, considering I know next-to-nothing about sports?

That is a question I may wrestle with until forever.

To their credit, they edited it well, and it almost (almost) sounds like I am saying sentences that make sense in the context of the questions being asked.

A special thank you to my brother-in-law, Joe, who provided me with some opinions that I could attempt to pass off as my own. And thanks also to Scoop and Adam for going easy on me.

I have almost never been this nervous on camera. At one point you can see me chewing — CHEWING — my lip.

Sigh.


Kiiiiind of amazing.

Holy shit!  This “Rob Lowe Goes Nuts” promo for the new season of Parks and Rec is fucking AMAZING!


Coupla things regarding last night:
Our show has been lucky enough to be nominated for lots of stuff. Each time we are heading into the arena, I am expecting not to win. Hopeful that we will, but realizing that there’s a TON of great TV happening right now, and we have had an amazing and ridiculous run so far.
As for Jon and Lizzie, I think they should win every single award that exists, because I think they are amazing actors. Plus, I happen to love them, and want to see them win. Mainly because I paid them each $20 to say how awesome I am in their speeches, and now I’m out $40.
Just kidding. They paid me back.
All that being said, we had a great time last night. It was so good to see my coworkers after not having seen many of them since September. My Lovely Wife and I have basically been quarantined since Kid #2.
Now to much more important matters: Please do not think for a moment that I am enjoying this “beard” any more than you are. It is for a job, and will vanish almost immediately upon said job’s completion. I promise.

Just saw your two Committee videos. I have not laughed so hard in quite some time. I do hope there are more in the future.

whateverishly

Good news! We are trying to nail down shoot dates now. I am excited to do more.


Concerning that whole Delta clusterfuck - have you officially complained to them yet? Are you going to? You should!

Nah. I mean it when I say that it wasn’t (all) their fault. I was just a surly dad with two young ‘uns.


I have no memory of this incident, but I love the picture.

I don’t hate Delta anymore. It wasn’t their fault, really, except for the rerouting-us-to-a-flight-we-would-probably-miss part.

I can’t hate them, because I am heading back to the airport right now to fly them again, and that would be a bummer of a way to start my day. I am being very zen about them.

I have instead chosen to focus my rage on one of the other passengers in this SuperShuttle, who brought his cat in the van.

I am allergic to cats.

THIS is a bummer of a way to start the day.

Update: OH MY GOD SOME OTHER LADY JUST GOT ON AND IS TALKING TO THE CAT AND LOVES IT AND ITS NAME IS BLUE AND IT’S GOING TO ORLANDO AND KILL ME PLEASE
