If you like your sports knowledge melded together with the latest espionage military trial news, Stephen Colbert did you a favor Wednesday night.

The man on trial for espionage was Bradley Manning -- who, you might realize, has the same surname as Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and the New York Giants' Eli Manning (not to mention Archie and Cooper).

That led to the somewhat-predictable joke on The Colbert Report that still might cause you to chuckle (or at least get you a half-guffaw).

The joke comes at about the 1:01 mark of the video below. And remember to eat your Wheaties.
