'SNL' sports sketches: Which is your fave?

Posted on

Tonight, NBC presents the Saturday Night Live Sports Extra (7 pm, EST), a clip collection. I’m guessing it’ll include fairly recent smart sketches such as Peyton Manning nailing some kids with footballs all in the name of mentoring — a fine example of a celebrity unafraid to spoof himself. And I’d guarantee that you’ll see Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri as Spartan cheerleaders. But the one clip SNL had better show is perhaps my favorite sports-related bit, Harry Shearer, Martin Short, and Christopher Guest’s brilliant 1984 parody of synchronized swimming.

So, sports fans (and are there many of you out there reading this? EW doesn’t cover sports TV very much — should we?): What Saturday Night Live sports-related sketches will you be looking for tonight?
