Stephen Colbert Makes, Slices Sandwich With Speed Skate At Vancouver Games (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

After he and his viewers bailed out the cash-strapped U.S. Olympic speedskating team to the tune of $300,000 when their previous sponsor DSB went under, Colbert took a front-row seat Wednesday night at Vancouver's Richmond Olympic Oval to watch the men's 1000 meter race.
