Author appearance: John Sexton

The president of NYU, where my daughter is a student, took a turn on The Colbert Report to discuss his new book, Baseball as a Road to God: Seeing Beyond the Game.

To be honest, I’m more of a Daily Show kind of guy. If given a choice at a guest shot, I’d prefer that because Jon Stewart would at least give you a chance to talk about your book seriously, whereas Steven Colbert (who happens to be a Montclair neighbor of mine, although I’ve never run into him) has his shtick where everything is about him.

See for yourself:

Of course, having said that, if Colbert’s people called to ask if I’d like to be on the show (wink, wink, budge, nudge)…
