Colbert and Spirit of Juno Arrive in Bermuda (VIDEOS)

Spirit of Juno and Stephen Colbert Arrive in BemudaRegardless of the lack of natural wind in the air to lift their sails, apparently Stephen Colbert provided enough hot air to propel his boat the Spirit of Juno and his crew mates to second to cross the finish line (we’re still waiting on the official results). Colbert and crew arrived at St. George’s Harbour around sunrise after crossing the East End finish line at approximately 5 am. After blaming mother nature for holding SOJ back, Colbert expressed optimism that his crew could still be the winning team:

“We’re still waiting ofr the corrected time. So fingers crossed, fingers crossed. Whoever’s watching this, you know, who won. So I hope you’re very happy for me. God, I hope you are.”

Well, Stephen, according to race headquarters you fell short. You’ve got some splainin’ to do on Tuesday!
