Saturday Night Live this week sounds like a recap of this blog from the past few weeks.
Frightening realization, straight from my mom: if Micheal Phelps eats that much, just imagine how many times a day he must be go to the bathroom. Terrifying.
And as for Tina Fey: she nailed Palin — tone, cadence, facial expressions… I never thought of her as much of an impressionist (not a criticism, I just don’t think she did many segments in that vein) — but she was incredible. Granted I’m like, 90% in love with her already, but I think this was a great moment. If they ever have Tina Palin and Sarah Palin come together on a segment, I think my head will explode.
Unfortunately, as they ran the SNL opening credits I also made this prediction: “That was the peak for the season; it’s all downhill from here.” And the rest of the show pretty much proved that out (though Weekdend Update was pretty strong).
