Then we watched the New Fog Bowl already in progress -- Central Michigan vs. Northern Illinois -- which ended up going into overtime, so we turned if off in favor of Stewart and Colbert, though I gather CMU won. Colbert made me cry talking about his sperm donations to bail out Britain, though, so it was all worth it.
