Noah Ritter, a five-year-old from Pottstown, Pennsylvania, recently found Internet fame after his first live TV interview from the Wayne County Fair went viral. After using the word "apparently" nearly 10 times in his 90-second interview, he was appropriately dubbed the "Apparently Kid" and has seen such a tremendous following develop that he's already been assigned an agent.
His 15-minutes continued earlier this week when he appeared on Good Morning America, telling recently Hall of Fame inductee, Michael Strahan, that he was a fan of the New York Giants before his grandfather "brainwashed him" into becoming a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
"I know you're part of the Giants," Ritter said. "I used to like the Giants, but my grandfather brainwashed me into liking the Steelers."
A taken aback Strahan responded jokingly, "What? Tell your grandfather he is absolutely wrong for that. I would not forgive him."
Ritter is, apparently, a pretty smart and engaging kid. In fact, he's a lot like the new King of Media, Michael Strahan. Perhaps he'll be the next one sitting alongside Mr. Strahan and the ever-talented Kelly Ripa.
Or he could do us all a favor and start calling Giants games in place of Joe Buck — who, apparently, will be returning to FOX for the 2014 season.
