Video: Colbert Asks "Is It Time For America To Care About Soccer?"



Last night Stephen Colbert addressed the Confederations Cup run and it's impact on the game in this country on The Colbert Report. Of course this being Colbert means it was 50% piss-take, 100% funny. He even had His Ginger Majesty along for the ride talking Azteca. It's madness I tell you, madness. This is the type of acknowledgment that makes me feel like a normal sports fan and not a member of a oft-ridiculed cult. I love it.

Echos my sentiments exactly. And since when did Colbert cut his hair so damn short?!

He got his head buzzed on a USO Tour a couple weeks ago.

I'm feeling more and more, that the talk of the game is getting less about ridicule of the sport and more accepting of it's global and appeal. It's a great time to be a fan.

Thought the 3 euro for the beer and 2 euro for the tax comment was hilarious! So true.

Colbert actually made a fool of himself:

That clip he showed resulted in one of the best goals of the 06 World Cup about 15 passes later. Somewhat disingenuous.
