Saturday Night Live spoofs SuperBowl blackout coverage


Saturday Night Live has been on point lately with their sports’ skits. The show has spoofed Ray Lewis, the Manti Te’o situation and Ryan Lochte this season. Their most recent show featured a mock up of CBS’ coverage of the Super Bowl blackout.

Keenan Thompson as James Brown and Jay Pharoah as Shannon Sharpe were the highlights.

“Well, this is only conjecture, but if there’s been no power for 20 minutes, I start to think, ‘who on this team are we going to eat first?’ The obvious choice is the punter because he’ll be easiest to catch. But then if you need a punter late in the game, you don’t have one because you ate him.”

“When the clock in the stadium stops, do we stop aging?”

“Ray Lewis knows who killed those people because it was him. I had to say something.”
