THESE GUYS THAT I LOVE IS YOU WILL SEE IN ACTION HERE, YOU CAN
PRETTY MUCH SAY ANYTHING YOU WANT AS LONG AS YOU GIVE THE
COUNT RIGHT AFTERWARDS, AS LONG AS YOU TELL THE BASEBALL COUNT,

DESCRIBED AS A DESPERATE AND HUNGRY ACCOUNT OF LOVEMAKING AND
RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF IT ALL WAS MY WI — MY WIFE LUCY. SHE WAS WEARING A STRAP-ON AND

ENOUGH TO THROW OUT THE CEREMONIAL FIRST PITCH AT
WRIGLEY FIELD THE DAY AFTER THEY CLINCHED THE PLAYOFFS AND I
WOULD JUST BE SO HONORED IF JIM BROCKMIRE COULD JUST CALL THE

SOMETHING OFF EVEN THOUGH THERE’S NO CATCHER THERE, GOES
INTO HIS WINDUP AND HERE COMES THE PITCH! AND IT’S WAY INSIDE, WAY

    He is arguably the greatest voiceover actor of our time, not to mention a great comedian, never fail to put a smile, when you see him in person you feel like he has a really big heart.

    1:06 "Oh and it's a surprise finger in the [bleep]" Now I realise he's in effect saying ass, but if you look at his mouth he's using a different word. What is it?

    Another example of why Colbert is the best comedian in late night: when Azaria is talking in the announcer voice about sex, Colbert immediately responds with "its such a beautiful day, let's play too". What a witty, wonderfully improvised joke

    that's very good. if I had any interest in baseball or even sports generally, I'd give the show a try. but since I don't, I'm guessing there's a risk of jokes going over my head.
