The Colbert Report: Bobsled Team Tryouts

2010 February 8
by Emily Hill

After yet another house cleaning fell by the wayside, I needed a good laugh. Thanks to “Frickin Yeah! I Love the Olympics” over on I got a really good one! She featured this five-minute clip of Stephen Colbert’s enthusiastic—and Spandex-worthy—attempt to join Team Night Train, an Olympic bobsled team. Lori’s advice was to make sure you weren’t drinking milk while watching. I’m here to tell you it is sage advice.

If you’ve had a less than stellar weekend or recently survived three hours of church without your spouse’s help (or are about to survive three hours of the Superbowl), you’ll enjoy this little ditty from The Colbert Report.

    Anyone willing to be videotaped in a full-body Spandex suit gets thumbs up in my book! :) Thanks for sharing!

    Azucar, your “chugga chugga chugga” had me laughing all over again! I’m tempted to watch it yet another time!
