Colbert Passes Stones With The U.S. Curling Team (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert returned last night (in HD no less) and he picked up right where he left off: continuing his quest to make any U.S. Olympic team. He's attempted bobsledding, which he described as "riding down a hill in an open casket," to no avail, but perhaps curling is his sport of choice.

Calling it the sport of kings, "if your kingdom contains nothing but ice cold rocks," Colbert visited the Team U.S.A curling team. After learning about the soft, lotioned hands of the team members, Colbert grabbed a broom and began "passing stones." While his playing style revolved around screaming and mugging for the "broom cam," it would be shocking if we didn't see him in Vancouver with the squad.
