Colbert ignores U.S. speed skater who called him a jerk, for now

Stephen Colbert makes Canada jokes, speedskater calls him a jerk

As you've probably heard, Stephen Colbert is sponsoring the U.S. Olympic speedskating team. He raised around $300,000 for it. But that's not good enough for at least one of the players, Shani Davis. At a press conference yesterday, he called Colbert a jerk for making jokes about Canada in an episode of The Colbert Report last month. Here's the segment. You be the judge.

olympics day 12The event that usually garners the most talk is women's figure skating, and it begins tonight with the short program. With Michelle Kwan out of the competition due to injuries, American skater Sasha Cohen gets the spotlight. And, Emily Hughes, the younger sister of 2002 Olympic gold medal figure skater Sarah Hughes, will also hit the ice. No pressure, Emily. Despite all the excitement over Sasha's modeling contracts and Emily's famous sister, Russian skater Irina Slutskaya is still favored for gold.

Also on the ice tonight, speed skaters Chad Hedrick, Shani Davis, Joey Cheek and Derek Parra race each other in the 1500m. Hedrick, Davis, and Cheek have all won gold medals so far in these games.

Here's the schedule on all of NBC's networks:
