SNL Throwback Of The Week #6 3/6/2010

I am a huge Saturday Night Live fan. One of my earliest memories was of my parents watching SNL every Saturday while we were tucked in our bedrooms, and sometimes being allowed to watch for a bit. The show has gone through its ups and downs over its 35 year run, but the fact that it is still on the air after 35 years is a testament to the staying power of the show. Lorne Michaels is a genius at finding and developing young, comedic talent. SNL has produced a bevy of stars over the years, from Eddie Murphy to Tina Fey. The show is doing well again thanks to Ms. Fey and the rest of the team, but I love watching clips from the old shows. Every Saturday I will give you guys one of my favorites. This weeks clip features Chris Farley in Bill Swerkski's Super Fans. Co-starring the lovable George Wendt, they are the Superfans... lovers of all thing sports and Chicago. They argue about outcomes of games, the greatest coach ever, and Michael Jordan. In this particular sketch, MJ himself makes an appearence. God I miss Chris Farley... I would have loved to see what else he would have accomplished in his career. R.I.P. sir, you were a genius... Hope you enjoy the clip. Live from my livingroom it's Saturday Night!!!


Thanks to Hulu for the clip.
