Save result of sp_who in a table with inserted date

All,

I created a table that matches the structure of sp_who:

table tbl_sp_who:
  spid            smallint,
  ecid            smallint,
  status            nchar(30),
  loginame            nchar(128),
  hostname      nchar(128),
  blk            char(5),
  dbname            nchar(128),
  cmd            nchar(16)

When you execute the below insert statement:
insert into tbl_sp_who execute sp_who

It saves the result into the table...

NOW, I want to add a column "insertDate" where when a record goes in, it has a time stamp of when it goes it.  This way I can look at the table like a log.

How do I do it?  I tried adding the extra column and going the 'getDate()' route but just adding the extra column crashes the insert statement.  

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
kris

create table  tbl_sp_who
(
  spid          smallint,
  ecid          smallint,
  status          nchar(30),
  loginame          nchar(128),
  hostname     nchar(128),
  blk          char(5),
  dbname          nchar(128),
  cmd          nchar(16),
  insertdate datetime default(getdate())
)

insert into tbl_sp_who (spid,ecid,status,loginame,hostname,blk,dbname,cmd)
exec sp_who

you create the column with the default detdate(), but then don't specify it in the values list.
