Stephen Colbert wants to fix NFL coin tosses
Sandwiched in between the Packers’ miracle 41-yard Hail Mary at the end of regulation in Saturday’s NFC divisional playoff game and Larry Fitzgerald’s game-breaking catch for the Cardinals to begin overtime was a very odd coin flip.
Aaron Rodgers called tails before the extra time began, but the coin never flipped and was re-tossed by the referee in one of the weirder moments in NFL postseason history.
Late Show host Stephen Colbert noticed this peculiar situation and has now dedicated himself to finding a better way to determine possession at the beginning of football games.
Colbert, who will be following Super Bowl 50 with a live broadcast of The Late Show, used his gridiron experience from his one day on his high school football team to inform his new ideas, including spin the bottle, a groundhog and an essay writing contest.
