Stephen Colbert has been a huge advocate this year for the Winter Olympics. His show is the official sponsor of the U.S. Speedskating team and in a recurring bit over the last few months Colbert has tried to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team in a variety of different events. From luge to curling, Colbert has been trying in every way possible to make the Olympic team, in hilarious fashion.

The reality of preparing for the Olympics means missing some of the best moments leading into the Games. In fact, I’ve only been to one opening ceremony in my Olympic life. That life spans four rounds, thus far. What I’ve always done, however, is live moments like these through the people experiencing them.
