Catching up with Eddie Moscow

Old Eddie Moscow, after spending some quality time in the Russian heartlands, emerged this week to chat with venerable NBC anchor Brian Williams.

He wanted people to know that he meant well, and really was quite the patriot looking out for all of us by giving all that sensitive information to the Red Chinese and basically Red, basically Soviets.
