I don't know if any of you caught the Colbert report last night, or have ever watched the show.
Colbert has this segment where he tries to get things named after him. He's already had a bridge in Hungay officially named the Stephen Colbert Bridge recently, and now his later quest was to have his name lent to a mascot with the OHL's Saginaw Spirit.
They showed footage of the new mascot's unveiling on last night's show, and it was pretty hilarious. The mascot tried to take a tour around the net but tripped on it. Then at the official puck dropping fell flat on its face. Colbert had some wisecracks about it but I don't remember.
The Spirit aren't off to the best start, so he proceeded to give them a pep talk and then at the end of the show retired the Spirit jersey he was wearing to the rafters. Sitting there staring at the jersey going up all teary eyed...pretty funny stuff. I expect him to follow the team for the year and give updates. A good boost for the team even if the name is kinda stupid...but it's only a mascot name.
I'm on dialup (live in the boonies) and the two times I tried to download that bit I never managed to get it done. Gonna give it another try now tho...thanks...I've heard he was hilarious.
I like Colbert as well - you stand a helluva lot better chance getting an idea of what's happening in American politics by watching Stewart and Colbert for an hour each weeknight than viewing 24 straight hours of CNN (or 24 days of Fox News) IMO. Plus you get to laugh.
