I just got back home today after going to Tallahassee this weekend. Stephen Colbert was the headliner for the FSU Pow Wow (the pep rally the night before our homecoming game). He was great! We even got The Word . Ticketmaster was nice to me this time (I guess to make up for so-so U2 karma) and my sister and I had front row seats, dead center!

I'm lazy (plus I did all the driving 4 hours there and 4 hours back), so I'll quote her post on televisionwithoutpity about the experience :
Quote:
Hey all, just got back from Tallahassee. The best part of the entire weekend was, of course, Stephen. After seeing him at the Powwow, the game was kind of anti-climatic.
SheTv already did an excellent recap (her quotes are below), so I'll just try and add my memories of the night.

SheTv: "He did a couple of jokes that I remembered from the show (i.e., how today's generation was coddled growing up, protected from danger, while his mother stacked her 11 children in the back of the Vista Cruiser like cordwood and then chain smoked Kents while taking them to school)
Lots of college-related humor (read: alcohol and weed related)"

One of my favorite parts was when he told us the insults we could use against Western Michigan. He lead the audience in a sing-a-long of the line "I gotta gal in Kallamazoo" and the response was: And she's your MOM. I also liked the joke about Jeff Bowden (who was FSU's offensive coordinator, just resigned, and whose contract was bought out for a great deal of money). Stephen said, "I understand you have an open position for offensive coordinator (audience shouts of: You do it, Stephen!) Now I can't take the job, but you can pay me 100,000 dollars not to do it."

SheTv: "At a quiet moment, some woman in the audience screamed to him "I love you Stephen; I want you to have my babies." This cracked him up and he asked her how she would go about putting her babies into him. He said it sounded very painful."

That girl was right behind me - part of a very drunk group. We actually got good seats and mimed to Stephen the drinking motion in regards to them... He said something like, "What, I should drink more?" My sister, god bless her, got awesome seats - front row center! Which leads me to...

SheTv: "He did a "The Word" bit about the State of Florida, and the bullets were on huge screens at the sides of the stage."

I caught "The Word"!!! At the end, when Stephen threw his notes into the audience, I grabbed for something...anything...and ended up catching the notes to "The Word"! My sister may have got her shirt signed by The Edge and Bono at a U2 concert, but I have an authentic copy of "The Word" that came from Stephen's hot hands to mine!

SheTv: "It was a great show all around and the Tallahassee audience was very appreciative."

Yes, it was. It was really the best part of Homecoming. Pictures will be forthcoming (even though alot of it's already up on youtube from people anyway) soon...let's hope CVS doesn't screw them up. And if I can get the scanner to do it, I will try and scan "The Word" that I caught:-)

I don't know why the scans don't work, they look big enough on my pc. How about this:

Just so you know, Comic Relief 2006 was last night. Stewart/Colbert portion was filmed. I believe it was close to about one hour into the show. I haven't seen it on You Tube yet, but did see it last night. Love them boys!

^ I missed it unfortunately. And the motel had HBO too, darn it.

Stephen's grand entrance, asking us if we were ready to learn how to buy properties for "NO MONEY DOWN."

"Oh wait, this isn't the Sheraton?"


"It's the Pow Wow? Oh shit! I thought that was tomorrow!"



He leaves and comes back with the "proper" entrance

Stephen attempts the FSU "Tomahawk Chop" - “I don’t want to tell you how to do your own racist chant.”

All that U2 mess getting tickets for the first pre-sale turned out to have a silver lining - practice, practice, practice!

I bought the sexiest men People magazine and took out the page of him where it says "Sexy Surprises" and put it up in my room. It looks nice

My last post about this (I promise) - it turns out the girl sitting behind us, the one who yelled out the she wanted Stephen to "have her babies" - goes to the University of Florida, our most hated rival. Oh the irony
