Colbert takes on Klinsmann, aka Field Marshall Buzzkill

[VIDEO PICK: Comedy] Jurgen Klinsmann's statement that the USA cannot realistically win the World Cup continues to haunt him as it has become fodder for comedians. Stephen Colbert tries to figure out what it is about Germans and their attitude about winning.

"So what? So what, Jurgen? We can play the game of our lives seven times," Colbert says on The Colbert Report. "Heck, they did it every week on Friday Night Lights. What's your problem, Field Marshall Buzzkill? That's not the American way to give up before you begin. What if the Pilgrims had gone back to England and said, 'There is no point. We'll never kill that many Indians."

Colbert brings in the Honorable Hans Beinholtz to explain Klinsmann's coaching philosophy.

"To love someone is to confront them with the own worthlessness," says the fictional Beinholtz, who adds it helps when he coaches his Little Leaguers.
