Long before he was hosting the Oscars or beating up Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart was a Whirling Dervish on the soccer field for William & Mary.
As we see via the link here, he touched the ball at least once, although I picture him more as a defender. Possibly a goalie. Actually I was sure he was into lacrosse. Live and learn.
I wonder what the statistics are on how many soccer players have become comedians? It's hard to picture Wayne Rooney doing a set at The Laugh Factory.
