Oshawa gives Colbert his day - The Ottawa Citizen
March 21, 2007 - by Citizen News Services

Hordes of Stephen Colbert fans turned out in Oshawa yesterday to fete the American comic whose buffoonish right-wing pundit delights fans on both sides of the border with his idiotic commentary on The Colbert Report. Colbert burgers, sandwiches and brews were on sale at various downtown restaurants prior to as many as 3,000 people packing the General Motores Centre for "Stephen Colbert Day" festivities. "This is a city I have admired ever since I learned of its existence recently," Colbert, who didn't attend the festivities, told the crowd via a taped message played on the arena's big screen. It all started when about two million Colbert fans inundated an online contest to name the mascot of the OHL's Saginaw Spirit. Steagle Colbeagle the Eagle was born. Colbert soon threw his support behind the squad and began trash-talking its OHL rivals, especially the Generals. After a public volley of taunts and counter-taunts, Oshawa Mayor John Gray lost a bet when the Generals dropped a recent showdown to the Spirits and had to declare "Stephen Colbert Day" in Oshawa on March 20, Gray's birthday.
