What season is this? Fall? That means it’s time for Colbert’s “Sport Report” to check in on football and …chess?
Last night, Stephen jumped from a discussion of concussions on the gridiron to a ban on street chess in San Francisco. For this he brought out his “longtime chess correspondent”: boxer extraordinaire Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The two chatted about the dangers of the sport and why a ban makes logical sense. The champ discussed his own experience with this most physical of competitive ventures. “I was lucky,” he says. “My father put a bishop in my hand when I was 3.”
Who will ever forget the Queen’s Gambit Mayweather used against Miguel Cotto?
