In Dan Gross’s column in today’s Philadelphia Daily News, “You Don’t See This on Radio,” I caught this brief item:
Being selected to host the Oscars isn’t the only honor being bestowed upon “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart. On Jan. 21 he’ll receive an award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America during its conference at the [Philadelphia] Convention Center. Stewart played soccer at the College of William and Mary.
Jon Stewart . . . in full soccer kit . . . possibly even wearing eye black.
The mind reels. The heart flutters.
