This will be the last Sundae Monday for a while. Complications mean that I won't have access to a computer on Mondays for a few weeks, so I'll be moving it up to Sundays.
One of the foundations of my childhood was eating dinner with my family and watching Match Game on GSN. And really, there were only four people who mattered on that show. Brett Somers, Richard Dawson, Charles Nelson Reilly, and Dumb Dora. That girl was so dumb . . . well, you know the rest. So it saddened me greatly to learn that Charles had died on Friday. Though the rest of his career consisted almost entirely of cameos, he will be missed and remembered for his incredibly flamboyant persona, and his brief stint hosting Match Game . . .
And after what he's done on Match Game, he couldn't possibly be embarrassed to be the spokesman for Bic Banana Ink Crayons.
