Patrick Stewart Performs Shakespeare While Explaining NFL Referee Lockout on ‘The Daily Show’ (Video)

The conversation about the NFL and its referees has been dominating the water cooler talk of sports fans. However, after Monday’s night’s debacle in Seattle, even non-sports entities have piled on, pointing out the sport’s flaws and heaping blame on commissioner Roger Goodell.

On Wednesday night, The Daily Show joined the fray, but it wasn’t the usual crew that joined Jon Stewart in lampooning the NFL. Instead, it was “replacement correspondent,” Sir Patrick Stewart, who performed a football-centric monologue with much gusto.

Stewart, who has performed for the Royal Shakespeare Company since the 1960s, mixed in famous lines from just about every one of William Shakespeare‘s plays in quite the impressive performance. Check it out in the video below.
