So, I'm not the first one to break this story, but I think we should remeber that Dana Carvey, while impersonating Tom Brokaw, predicted his death ten years ago.
This is one of the funniest sketches I ever saw. I'm still trying to find a video clip-maybe NBC can find it in their hearts to release one. In the meantime, courtesy of DanaCarvey.net, I offer these audio clips from the sketch. Brokaw wants to go on vacation, so they are recording Brokaw breaking every possible major news event.
UPDATE: Found it!
