Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert Speculation at UNC Tonight

A few months ago, we posted a very long post, documenting the tumultuous relationship between Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert.  During this past February, they often promoted that something would happen on March 3, when their "Eternal Enemies for 6 Months" would have expired.  But March 3 came and went, and nothing happened.  We have been watching both Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Colbert Report religiously each night (or later in the week on DVR), and not even a single mention of their relationship.  

Tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, will be appearing on the show.  Not only that, but the show will be broadcast from UNC the (University of North Carolina) instead of his usual New York City studio.  So why on this huge episode of Late Night, with the highest profile guest imaginable, do I suspect something might go down with this silly little Colbert "feud"? 

Well, earlier today, Stephen Colbert randomly tweeted the following:

Why would Stephen randomly tweet about the UNC campus?  Was he perhaps there to film something for Jimmy's show?  We don't know.  Jimmy and his crew have been tweeting about tonight's show with Obama all day, and no mention at all of Colbert.  Also, as far as we know, Colbert is shooting his own show in New York today, so it's very likely that his tweet was just Stephen being random, and not indicative of anything.  But then again, who knows...  

So I guess we'll have to tune into Late Night tonight at 12:37 to see if Colbert does in fact appear.  And even if he doesn't (which is quite likely), it should still be a pretty amazing show with the President of the United States.  And from what the crew has been tweeting, Obama is gonna Slow Jam the News, which should be amazing!
