Cheeky football team's 'Oreo run' is butt of late night host's jokes
The players, who were suspended, were mention on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers'
A Rockford Register Star story about 10 Byron football players who were suspended for their part in an “Oreo run” has not only been republished by news outlets across the country, it’s become late night talk show fodder.
On Tuesday, the story wound up on "Late Night with Seth Meyers." Meyers makes a joke at timestamp 1:18 about what happened to the cookies after the incident.
The Rockford Register Star’s Dec. 1 story reported that Byron football players took part in a naked race across the football field with an Oreo wedged between their buttocks. School administrators said it was not hazing and that the appropriate football players were punished.
In the past week, the story spread across the country in popular news and media outlets such as Fox News, Thrillist, USA Today, WGN, Deadspin and many more.
