Stephen Colbert To Sponsor United States Speedskating Team

Dan Jansen was a guest on the Colbert Report tonight, and the subject of a sponsor for the Speedskating team came up, as US Speedskating has been coping with a $300,000 loss since their sponsor went bankrupt. Colbert (jokingly? maybe?) implied he (or the Colbert Nation) would like to sponsor the team. Jansen pressed a bit, saying he’d have to talk to someone in the know, like Executive Director Robert Crowley. To which Colbert replied “bring him out.”

Crowley came out on stage, produced a piece of paper which Colbert signed, and made it official. Stephen Colbert and Colbert Nation will be sponsoring the United States Speedskating Team at the Vancouver games.

Congrats to US Speedskating for finding a sponsor, and congrats to Colbert for being patriotic and supporting the Olympics.
