That might be enough to embarrass some, but for Kaleb Michaud, the particular Nebraskan board game collector in question, it's been part of a wild ride to local celebrity status.
A rheumatology professor by day, Michaud's fifteen seconds of fame began after The Omaha World-Herald ran an article chronicling his collection. He caught the board game bug when a friend taught him to play best-selling "gateway" hit Settlers of Catan, and now he has accumulated some 1,504 games -- enough to fill an entire room.
And he didn't take Meyers' gag too personally. In fact, according to a profile that ran this week in The Daily Nebraskan, he wasn't insulted at all.
He might be in line for more recognition than a few column-inches and a SNL skit. His collection is within shouting distance of being a world record. According to Guinness, the current record holder is Illinois resident Jeff Bauspies, who snagged the title back in August with a total hoard of 1,531, just a handful more than Michaud. Depending on how many games Bauspies has acquired since setting the record, he could be in for a little competition.
