Rush reference on the Colbert ReportI've gotten a few emails about this one; apparently Rush's Working Man was played on Monday Night Football last night when they went to a commercial break. Cool.

This other one is pretty funny. The Colbert Report is a satirical news show on Comedy Central starring Stephen Colbert. On last night's episode, there was a funny Rush reference. In his The Word segment, he was talking about how the scientific community is forming groups to get science-friendly candidates elected. He mentions that he believes in an old guy with a beard (ZZ Top flashes across the screen) while scientists believe in an 11-dimensional multiverse made up of tiny vibrating strings. And this flashes on the screen: Basically, A Rush concert. Funny. You can watch the segment here. Thanks to Rush Forum member KenJennings for spotting this one.
