Denver TV anchors: Take a cue from WGN's choreographed team

Okay, okay: The clip above has nothing to do with Denver -- but it's too hilarious not to share. (Thanks, by the way, to Andy Bosselman, the person who shared it with me. Bosselman's entertaining blog can be accessed here.) The video shows Robert Jordan and Jackie Bange, longtime anchors with WGN in Chicago, doing an amazing and amusing series of choreographed moves to kill two minutes between segments. Prepare your jaw to slacken. Consider this a challenge to Adele Arakawa and Mark Koebrich, Mike Landess and Anne Trujillo and all the rest of Denver's newsreaders. Bet your ratings would rise if you interspersed stories with a little patty-cake...
