Stephen Colbert on Favre

Yes, this is yet another post about Ol' #4. But it doesn't really fit the now ubiquitous "What the Favre" series; there's nothing really about Brett Favre's surgery, signing, etc.

Or is there...? Hmmm...

Well, at least this one comes from that noted social and sports commentator, Stephen Colbert, on last night's Colbert Report on Comedy Central. For those of you who missed it, check it out here. To get to the part about Favre, forward the video to about the 3 minute 40 second mark. Priceless on so many fronts. Including a good dig at the ViQueens, too.

One of Colbert's best lines: "Of course, Green Bay fans would love to help Favre become a Viking by putting him on a boat and setting it on fire."

And: "Of course, there is one catch: you'll have to find an employer desperate enough to hire an unproductive, injury-prone, senior citizen. I'd start by calling the Minnesota Vikings." You'll need to pay attention to the context for that comment, but even on its own it stands up pretty well.

Stephen Colbert: Truthiness personified!
