" Decently twisted, and the demented philosophical question at the end may have been the biggest laugh of the night.Another sketch had Manning playing a basketball star on a team of losers.The best joke came from Poehler: "ABC has announced this week that it renewed 'Lost' for a fourth season," she reported. '" The worst joke also came from Poehler: "Coca-Cola has released a new kosher formula for Passover," she said, then took on a Yiddish accent."Oh, really, well it just so happens that my soda is a doctor." She then held up a Dr. It gave us George Bush, addressing the audience about the recent scandal involving Alberto Gonzales.Insisting that the Attorney General would take responsibility, Bush (Jason Sudeikis) made statements like: "If there's been an ethical breach, he knows he's responsible." And, get this: Gonzales would then look uneasy and sneak off camera! Use a VPN to make yourself hidden while downloading movies.
No, but seriously - that was the only joke the sketch offered, over and over again."Texas uniforms are orange," she said of why she picked USC."So right there, Texas and I have a big problem." The best parts of the sketch were when Sudeikis would use the name Peyton Manning to indicate a team who choked when it came to crunchtime.Bush Gonzales Cold Open (Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen), Peyton Monologue (Peyton Manning, Archie Manning, Eli Manning, Olivia Manning), An SNL Digital Short: United Way (Peyton Manning), Bronx Beat (Peyton Manning, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph), Penelope at a Housewarming Party (Peyton Manning, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader), TV Funhouse: Maraka, Weekend Update (Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler featuring Will Forte as Senator Tim Calhoun), 300 Shoot (Peyton Manning, Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson, Will Forte), On the Porch (Peyton Manning, Kristen Wiig), Commercial Parody: Meatloaf Lovers (Peyton Manning), Commercial Parody: Nike Pick-Ups (Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Will Forte, Kenan Thompson).was ultimately treated much like any given Sunday performance on the field: he tried hard, made a few decent passes, but ultimately learned that his performance could only be as good as those around him.The evening's fake commercial showed Manning teaching local youths how to play football.Basically, the joke was an easy one cut from the cloth, with Manning drilling the kids with full-speed passes, taunting their failures, and even giving them tattoos."Spend time with your kids," the ad urged, "So Peyton manning doesn't." Decent, but nothing special.Next came the rapidly-getting-overplayed "Bronx Beat" recurring sketch, with Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph basically playing a duo of Rosie O'Donnell-like talk show hosts.Then came "ESPN's NCAA Tournament Pool Party", which had Sudeikis hosting a sports show alongside Poehler and Manning.The two were March Madness contest winners - with Manning as a sports reporter and Poehler as an ordinary receptionist who knew nothing about the sport.
