Spithill on Colbert Report

I just saw OTUSA skipper Spithill on Colbert, although, the original air date was last week.

Couple of his notable comments:

"It's like NASCAR on the water" (wow)

"I don't think you're ever really in control"

"I'm not going to lie to you, it feels fantastic" (replying to how it feels to beat a Kiwi, as he's from Australia)

Colbert's one notable comment:

Suggests that in the next Cup race, they keep the exact same boat but sail it on an ocean of Ellison's cash.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: Spithill on Colbert Report

Being a sailor, I could tell Colbert was jazzed to have him on the show. He didn't mess with him too much, just a straight-up interview (with a few jokes).
