Seth Meyers Q&A with the NY Times

The New York Times features a Q&A with Seth Meyers in which he chats about the ESPYs, writing for athlete hosts at SNL & other sport-related jazz. You can check it out here. 
This might be my favourite excerpt though -

"I will probably get beaten up for suggesting this, but being a sports fan and being a comic-book fan aren’t all that different. They both require mastering very specific bodies of knowledge.
Absolutely. Anyone who thinks they’re less nerdy because they know the stats of the 1972 Pirates versus the starting lineup of the X-Men, I beg to differ."
