Oh, what a fantastic anecdote! I had no idea there was a board game for the show. It looks like a fan production (which probably means it's a lot of fun).
I love the DVDs too; it sounds like everyone involved loved each other and knew they were making something worthwhile. Except for Joe Rogan and Andy Dick, maybe. Have you heard Joe Rogan talk about their relationship? It sounds very much like they are brothers who love each other, but have trouble getting along. Additionally, if you've never heard what Dave Foley was going through while they were shooting the show, you should check it out.
I haven't yet written about NewsRadio for my writing craft web site, but I should do so because I love the show and its writing so much. Do you mind if I use your anecdote as some kind of flavor in my essay? (I could thank "Buckeyeneer" or your real name if you want.)
