The only thing I can figure is that there is some kind of bragging rights to it. Another possibility is that I simply have no clue how much of a following he has , perhaps with the same people who write personal letters to characters on Soap Operas giving them advice on their lost loves and that sort of thing.
I've never understood it. But then again, I've always though Lauer an unpleasant sleeze.
