The World Series of Poker – and poker as a whole – has been labeled a sport by some....and late night comedian Conan O'Brien couldn't resist taking a jab at that concept.

Over the past couple of days O’Brien seemingly mocked that concept via his popular Twitter feed.

On Saturday he tweeted to his more than 21 million followers: “Now that the Olympics are over, I can get back to comparing my body to the athletes on World Series of Poker.”

That tweet received more than 10,000 favorites.

O’Brien, it should be noted, is a fan of the game.  His reps over the years have worked with Gambling911.com to provide gambling-related show content for the site.
