Oh, Colbert
Nearly 5,000 people came out to Science World in Vancouver to see Stephen Colbert's live Olympic Special taping this morning.  It was a fortunate day for the taping, hands down the best weather of the trip thus far.  Colbert's Olympic special taped for two hours today, and will tape again for another two hours tomorrow, according to a Vancouver park ranger. 

Today's show began with a hearty rendition of "Oh, Canada."



Colbert Olympic Special Taping
If not for the group of people about 7 seconds ahead of everyone else, it was a pretty cool moment.  After the impromptu anthem, Colbert told the crowd who he planned on interviewing, called Bob Costas "bite-sized" and when asked why he wasn't talking to Wayne Gretzky, said something to the effect of, "Gretzky? Isn't he in LA now?"

Finally, the security detail consisted of a pair of park rangers and a plastic penguin diverting people away from a slippery, muddy bog in the middle of the park.  It was pretty comical, especially since the penguin worked.  There was at least a fifteen-foot radius of no people surrounding that plastic sentry.
