The life of Joe Gibbs in 2014 mostly consists of ministry and race cars. Ministry, race cars and cable television appearances with satirically conservative pundits.
The head coach of Washington’s Super Bowl XVII, XXII and XXVI championship teams appeared on “The Colbert Report” Tuesday night to talk football and assure Colbert that Chuck Knoll possessed no divine advantage. The two-time coach of the Redskins gave the franchise a nice shout-out on national television.
“I think it’s the greatest town to coach in,” Gibbs told Colbert. “That is the greatest sports franchise I think in the world.”
Colbert, who was born in Washington, said he is a huge Redskins fan, maybe too huge. Figuring Gibbs had a Super Bowl ring to spare, he asked to play with one before pulling the okey doke on Gibbs.
Once the cameras turned off, Colbert probably returned the hardware without a fuss. But I like to imagine Gibbs ripping Colbert and telling him to hit the showers before yanking his ring out of the host’s suit pocket.
Watch how Colbert steals Gibbs’ ring along with the coach’s estimation of Colbert’s muscle mass in the clip from the show.
