Kevin Sumlin Gets Through Two Hours of Lord of the Rings, Falls Asleep Before Finishing
After excitedly buying the Blu-ray of the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition, Kevin Sumlin fell asleep with just twenty minutes left in the movie. “I thought my effort in the first half of the movie was great – I was really alert and defied a lot of expectations. Unfortunately, in the last part of the movie, I just let it slip away from me,” Sumlin said as he somberly addressed his family the next morning.
The recent incident is just one of many similar situations Sumlin has found himself in recently. Last fall, Sumlin binge watched all of Stranger Things in one day and was on a roll. Many thought it would be a monumental achievement for him, but right before the season finale, he dozed off and left the series unfinished.
The Sumlin situation has gotten so bad that a member of the Texas A&M Board of Regents took to Facebook to complain. “If Kevin Sumlin can’t finish Lord of the Rings even with a huge head start, I don’t know why we continue to pay his HBO Go membership.”
