Sport’s stars from Lance Armstrong to Manti Te’o have been in the news as of lately for lying to the public, fans and the media. Obviously for two severely different reasons, but Saturday Night Live is not going to let a perfect opportunity for some comedy slip by.
SNL took it upon themselves to rip Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o and it was pure comedic genius. SNL performed a mock interview from England’s second biggest jerk after Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan. Lying athletes weren’t the only targets on SNL as Jodi Foster was also thrown under the bus regarding her odd Golden Globes coming out speech. The gag even included a call back to ex-SNL member Molly Shannon’s character of Sally O’Mally. “I’m fifty!”
