Colbert Is Loving My Hometown!

If you are a fan of the Colbert Report, you know that he encouraged his fans to vote on the website of the Saginaw Spirit (the OHL team that’s in my hometown, Saginaw, MI) to name their new mascot Steagle Cobeagle The Eagle. Well, it worked and Saginaw named their mascot after Colbert. Brilliant, right? Then he takes to dissing the team from Oshawa, Ontario and when they have a charity drive during the game by tossing teddy bears on the ice, Colbert said they were taunting him (he hates bears). So, what does he do? He encourages the Saginaw fans, at their next home game, to toss GM Annual Earnings Reports on the ice to taunt the Oshawa fans (he even provides downloadable versions of the forms). Long story short, Colbert bets on the next Saginaw vs. Oshawa game (back in January), Saginaw dominates, and Oshawa declared the Mayor’s Birthday (March 20th) as Stephen Colbert day. Brilliant, just brilliant. I’m going to buy a bunch of Saginaw Spirit crap when I’m home for Easter and sell it for 4 times as much down on Maxwell street. Bring some pop cans so I can buy some gas next time I’m in Saginaw and I’ll give you 5% off your purchase!
