A hearty stew of offbeat sports and pop culture.

Stephen Colbert is the new Sports Illustrated cover boy

stephen-colbert-sports-illustrated.jpgThe latest issue of "Sports Illustrated" features Comedy Central funnyman Stephen Colbert in an Olympic speedskating uniform.

That's no joke.

The issue, which hits newsstands Wednesday, is devoted to sports media.

As you may remember, Colbert led a movement that resulted in Colbert Nation becoming the official primary sponsor of U.S. Speedskating after raising more than $250,000 from fans.

It will be interesting to see if the so-called "Sports Illustrated curse" extends into the television field.
