Mick Foley to appear on the Daily Show November 2010, talks about 'Rally to Restore Sanity'

Wrestler Superstar Mick Foley announced on his his Twitter page that he will be a guest on 'The Daily Show', airing on Comedy Central on Wednesday November 10, 2010. Foley recently attended the Rally to Restore Sanity/March to Keep Fear Alive' event in Washington DC where he received a medal of sanity from Jon Stewart and dubbed the show’s “Senior Ass Kicker”.
Before I get into The Rally to Restore Sanity, and the medal bestowed upon me by Jon Stewart, I would like to make a few reasonable requests.

1) Buy a copy of "Countdown to Lockdown" for someone you love - even if that someone is you...

What an amazing experience the Rally was. If I had one complaint, it would be that there was no video team doing a "Making of the Rally" behind the scenes documentary. Because if the sixties had Woodstock as their great testament to peace, love and understanding, I believe that, years from now, a generation will look back on the Rally as a seminal moment in the art of just trying to get along. Besides, I would really have liked some video evidence of me hanging out, watching the show, taking in the atmosphere, with an eclectic group of superstars fro all across the entertainment spectrum - from Sheryl Crow, to Yusaf, to Tony Bennett, to Kid Rock to Kareem Abdul Jabaar. OK, maybe "hanging out" is a little inaccurate, especially in the case of Kareem, who was a little ...detached from his fellow invitees, but I swear, I was in the same general vicinity as the rest of the gang...

I'd never met Steven [sic] Colbert before the Rally rehearsal on Saturday evening. But despite all of the pressure and the magnitude of the situation, both Steven and Jon went out of their way to make me feel welcome both Saturday and Sunday...

I know I'll look back on the Rally with great fondness for years to come...

Oh, yeah, I even received an award - which I'm sure I'll tell you more about in the days, weeks and months to come. Kurt Angle - there's a new medal in TNA.
Mick Foley has appeared on The Daily show twice before but this marks his first appearance as a sit-down guest with Jon Stewart. With that said this Foley appearance is not politically orientated but an avenue to promote his latest book (Countdown to Lockdown) and causes he has been supporting (RAINN)
