The Colbert Report spotlights Spirit

The Saginaw Spirit were highlighted on the Colbert Report last night.

The Report showed footage from the unveiling ceremony of the newest Spirit mascot, Steagle Colbeagle the Eagle. The segment also showcased the OHL and the two upcoming Spirit home games against the Ottawa 67's and the Sudbury Wolves. At the end of the show, the host, Stephen Colbert, retired his Spirit jersey and raised it to the rafters of his studio.

"We are proud of our accident-prone new mini mascot, Steagle Colbeagle the Eagle, as he made his international television debut last night," Spirit managing partner Craig Goslin said. "As Stephen Colbert raised his Spirit Jersey to the rafters of his studio, he officially became the first Spirit to do so."

The community of mid-Michigan is quickly being transformed into raving Stephen Colbert fans. Stay tuned for future updates on both the Colbert Report and the Saginaw Spirit hockey games played at the Dow Event Center.

The Report is shown Monday through Thursday at 11:30 p.m. on Comedy Central. The show will be replayed on Comedy Central Wednesday, October 4th at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. A video clip of the segment will be available online on Comedy Central's website within the next two days.
