Brad Colbert (born July 25, 1974) is a former active duty United States Marine, whose platoon's role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq was featured in a series of articles in Rolling Stone by Evan Wright. Wright was an embedded reporter who rode in the backseat of Colbert's vehicle during this time until his departure on May 4, 2003. Wright later expanded these articles into the book Generation Kill which was turned into a HBO miniseries of the same name in which Colbert was portrayed by Alexander Skarsgård.

Welcome to the official YouTube channel for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert"! Weeknights at 11:35pm/10:35c. Stephen Colbert loves telling stories, especially when he's reminded of one by an event in the news or a holiday on the calendar. This Late Show digital series, which won a 2019 Telly Award for Directing, is a collection of Stephen's stories, often told at the only time of day he has a moment: while catching the elevator on his way to rehearsal.

Parma have won eight major titles in their history, with all eight coming in the space of ten years between 1992 and 2002. The only two major honours that Parma are yet to win are the Serie A title and the UEFA Champions League, the most prestigious domestic and continental competitions, respectively. Perhaps reflecting this, Parma are one of just four clubs worldwide who have won a major European trophy without having also won a national league title, along with West Ham United, Real Zaragoza and Bayer Leverkusen. The club were also the only side to represent Italy in European competition.

Colbert thinks we could all use a little less excitement in the White House. Colbert wishes for a nice boring president, as we had in days of yore. Watch as he deconstructs Trump's Tampa rally and the crowd's reaction to Jim Acosta. Yes, we're going to ignore these people shouting hateful things, and get back to the president shouting hateful things," he said. He told Jim Acosta to "embrace his new role as a wrestling villain.

Despite the recent flood of foreign players into the British Isles, Italy's Series A is still the showcase for the world's top football stars. With the likes of Ronaldo, Alessandro Del Piero and George Weah at the big three clubs, Jeventus, Internazionale and Milan are not about to relinquish their grip over Italian football. But in recent years clubs such as Lazio, Fiorentina and Parma have seriously challenged for the scudetto. It's at Parma that Greg Burke has been granted access behind the scenes to tell the story of a squad from a small provincial town that, in the last decade, travelled from obscurity to win the Italian Cup, the UEDA Cup and qualify for the Champions League. Notes from a Year in Serie A is the story of the 1997-98 season in Italy, as seen through the eyes of controversial Parma coach Carlo Ancelotti and the club's players, owners and fans. From Bari and Naples (former home of Diego Maradona) to Turin and Bologna, from Parma's dressing room to Inter's boardroom, this revealing, comprehensive and amusing account gets under the skin of Italian football -- along the way answering questions such as: Was Ronaldo a good investment for Inter? Who are the most violent fans in Serie A? How do Juventus keep on winning? And why did Ancelotti sign Faustino Asprilla rather than Baggio?

This is an excellent, wonderful snapshot of the crazy, life-and-death world of Italian soccer.
You don't have to love soccer and you don't even have to love sports to love this book. It has drama, personality, grit, emotion, and, above all, a ring of joy throughout it. Some books you read to learn; others you read for joy. This is the rare work that lets you do both, page after page.
I was walking through a northern Italian village one evening when Italy was playing a selection game for the last Coppa. "Where is everyone?" my wife asked me. Suddenly the entire countryside exploded in a joyous roar. Italy had just scored.
In seconds, the street was full of kids and parents laughing, hugging and jumping on their motorini to hook horns.
It was a moment of magic, and the good Mr. Burke manages to catch much of that spirito in these pages.
Viva La Roma!

As an ex-patriot living in Italy I couldn't help but catch the soccer bug. It is the national religion and Mr. Burke's book uncovers the reality in the cult. Following a well known Italian team backed by a notoriously famous "Mister" the book penetrates to the roots of the most prestigious soccer league in the world. It is a great read for veteran soccer enthusiasts or for the young aspiring fan.
