Stephen Colbert Perplexed By This Muslim Sportsball Man And His Exotic Ways (Video)


Stephen Colbert is just as puzzled as we were about the curious case of the Kansas City player who waspenalized for Muslim Tebowing -- especially after the NFL decided, no, that wasn't a penalty after all. It's not so much the religious freedom question that has Colbert perplexed as a more fundamental matter: Why are Islamazoids like Husain Abdullah even playing in the NFL "if they're not allowed to touch pig skin? What's gonna happen? We're gonna have to switch to Halal balls."

Besides, Colbert says,

We all know football's a Christian sport. That's why we have plays like the "Hail Mary" and the "Lateral Judas." And in football, we thank only Jesus. Tim Tebow was so good at it, we started calling praying "Tebowing." Though these days "Tebowing" means bagging groceries at a Safeway.

Watch. Enjoy.
