    Please save a little wit and venom for the IOC when the Olympics roll around again, Mr. Oliver. And don’t forget the NCAA when the news cycle gets slow.

    Yup, pretty much.

    12:53 on is why FIFA- and any other sporting entity- can get away with pretty much any offense on the sensibilities of (sane) people. That same logic extends to governments.

    Remember, Brazil is hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics. Oh boy…

    John Oliver is great. If Jon Stewart ever retires, JO is a shoo-in for the position.
