Aaron Matas generally handles the high school sports reports and weekend shifts for KUSA channel 9 in Denver, but he's getting a lot of bonus air time thanks to the World Cup and his sense of humor.

Matas is appearing regularly during the station's sports segements covered from head to toe in red, white and blue as his alter ego Nil Nil. Sadly, Nil Nil had only 117 Twitter followers as of early Saturday morning. That is bound to increase with three weeks remaining in the World Cup.

Nil Nil is a soccer super fan and obviously loves Team USA above all. He was already prepared for the U.S. to play its next game in the group stage early Saturday morning even though the game against Portugal doesn't happen until Sunday afternoon.

Matas doesn't need a phone booth like Clark Kent to become Nil Nil. You can see how he debuted earlier this month in this video

The reports haven't always gone smoothly. With his eyes covered by a red stripe in his costume, Nil Nil has had trouble reading his scripts at times in reports that lack video because the station doesn't have rights. It's that lack of actual highlights that likely led to the station finding a fun way to report on each day's action at the World Cup.
