A Case of Man Crush

After this week’s announcer George Takei started off the show introducing everyone, Howard said he woke up at 3 a.m. and couldn’t fall back to sleep. When Robin mentioned that she has been having the same problem, Howard wondered if it could be happening because they actually enjoy their jobs. Gary told Howard that was in fact the reason, adding that he likes working at SIRIUS so much that he doesn’t want to leave the office at night. George then noted that whenever he goes out on the streets of Manhattan, he is constantly approached by fans of the show who simply say to him, “Oh my!” George went on to note that he attended a showing of “Casanova” yesterday, largely in part because it features Heath Ledger, the star of one of George’s favorite movies, “Brokeback Mountain.” Howard pointed out that it sounded like George had a crush on Heath, but George replied that wasn’t the case, and that he just wanted to see Heath play a different role. Howard then asked Artie what he thought of “Casanova.” However, Artie told Howard that, surprisingly, he hadn’t seen it.
