On last night's episode of the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert did something he doesn't often do: talk about sports. Turns out that fans of the Oshawa Generals in the Ontario Junior Hockey League have it in for Colbert. After beating up on Stephen's team, the Saginaw Spirit, fans tossed teddy bears on the ice, a personal afront to Colbert who suffers from a well known case of bear-phobia. In retaliation, Colbert reminds the Oshawa fans that General Motors, whose Canadian HQ is located in their town and after which their team is named, is not doing so well in the market these days. In fact, he warns that they shouldn't get too cozy in that shiny new arena GM built for them, as it could be stripped for parts. In a not-so-subtle way, Colbert then provides his fans with a link to General Motors' Q3 Earnings Statement in PDF form on the Colbert Nation website. You know, just in case anyone happens to be at Saginaw's home game on January 26th and feels like tossing a copy on the ice when the Spirit stuff a puck down the Generals' throats. Behold people, this is the power of Colbert.
For those going to the game on the 26th, here's the link to the PDF file.
