Soccer Fan Jon Stewart References Arsenal and Man United On Prime-Time TV

Former college soccer player and soccer fan Jon Stewart sneaked in a reference to Arsenal and Manchester United during The Daily Show on Comedy Central last night.

Skip to minute 2:15 to see Jon Stewart rapping about the Gunners and Red Devils. But to better understand the context of the joke, I’d recommend watching the clip from the beginning.

It’s a shame they showed pictures of MLS players and added a dig about ties in soccer, but we Premier League fans will take the free publicity anyhow.

    Did you hear the cheer from the crowd when he dropped the reference? Pretty cool!

  2. Eric says:

    Or it’ll end 8-2 in favor of Manchester United….

  3. DoublePivot says:

    My favorite part was him calling it “real football”

    If you listen to the excellent Bugle podcast, which I highly recommend, you’ll hear John Oliver (correspondent from the DS) often refer to Stewart’s love of the game. Oliver himself is a Liverpool supporter as well as being a massive supporter of Pippa Middleton’s posterior. Oh Pippa! I don’t know if Stewart has a club, but is a massive USMNT supporter.

    Wow for a second I thought I was on crooksandliars.com… and I like it.

    I totally caught the reference he made and absolutely loved it. It was also a call back to the MNF intro of old … and of course, I loved that one of the teams referenced was Arsenal.
