Rom Needs Children!

A huge thanks to Plaid Stallions for this incredible photo of Rom the Space Knight taking a break from hunting Dire Wraiths to help lend a hand in the park for a celebration! Two things stood out though as I looked at this amazing photo:

1) Is Rom holding that little girl up by one hand? That looks like it would hurt.

2) Is the reporter standing behind Rom…Buck Henry?

    Dax – Ha! Too true. One can never be sure.
    Thanks Vic! Seeing Rom still remembered after all these years brings me a surprising amount of joy.

    And that’s either Buck Henry or Michael (Mr.Mike) O’Donoghue.
    Either way, it’s a long-lost SNL skit I’d love to see.
