Stephen asks the important questions following Chiefs’ safety Husain Abdullah’s wrongfully penalized TD celebration, like “What’s next, Druids planting a tree in the end zone?” and “How can muslims play football if they’re not allowed to touch pigskin?”
German’s have a reputation for being direct, and USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann didn’t exactly defy the stereotype by telling his team “winning a World Cup is just not realistic.” Colbert finds this to be very un-American.
Too soon? Never. Let TV’s funniest desk jockeys relieve our collective tension on the heels of a historically uncomfortable moment in sports history…
Stephen Colbert Is A Strong Supporter Of Florida Atlantic Naming Its Stadium After A For-Profit Prison Company
Earlier this week, we wrote about the news that Florida Atlantic found a… unique source to pay for naming rights to its stadium: the GEO Group, a for-profit prison company. The name caused a fair bit of controversy – so much so that The Colbert Report took notice.
We’ve already seen a few interesting things on the whirlwind tour U.S. Olympians are making throughout the nation’s late night talk show couches. A very disinterested Kevin Durant and James Harden and a similarly unimpressed McKayla Maroney among them. But nothing quite tickled our fancy like the appearance the Fierce Five (and their mothers) made on The Colbert Report Wednesday night.
Yeah, the Olympics’ opening ceremonies were a few days ago now, but it’s never too late to rip on some of the more absurd aspects of the ceremony… and NBC’s coverage of same. So, last night, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report did just that. See how after the jump.
