Colbert Report schools US Olympic men’s speekstaters in being hetero for Sochi

A pretty funny segment from the Colbert Report on training the US men’s Olympic speedskating team to be as hetero as possible for when they compete in Sochi, Russia – since Russia is notoriously anti-gay.

Buddy Cole was pretty funny this time.

The part with Kyle Carr about 3:00 into the video is priceless.

Buddy Cole: Is speedskating a choice, or were you born a speedskater?

Speedskater Kyle Carr: I think you’re born a speedskater.

Buddy Cole:  So you were born a speedskater? Yes. What’s your name?

Kyle Carr: Kyle Carr.

Buddy Cole: [repeats his name with the same butch accent Carr has] Kyle Carr.

Kyle Carr: I’m a short track, um, I do short track…

Buddy Cole: What, you’re a short tracker? Don’t worry about it Kyle, it’s a little cold in here.  We’re all a little short-tracked.

    This brought tears to my eyes, so good! It’s nice to see our old Canadian hero Scott still has got his talent.

  2. He was only pretending he couldn’t skate. Scott is Canadian and has been ice skating since he was 5.

    This is the first time I’ve heard them referred to as the Sashay Olympics.

    Putting Buddy on figure skates was cruel; the one time I tried them, I did a face-plant on the ice. After awhile they’re fun for turns but you’re always watching out for the pick.

    Love the Nordic backgrounds of the team – Florida, Texas, even Federal Way, WA, isn’t particularly cold.
