yeah I thought that sucked. "people from the northside are usually cub fans...and yuppies" im sure all the north side sox fans are loving that gem.

"this world series was for all cursed teams and for the city of chicago"

I'm all for celebrating the championship with the whole city b/c i know there are sox fans all over the place not just exclusively the southside, but why bring up "other cursed teams" implying the cubs? there is no way in hell this championship was for them!

EDIT: I'm obviously not blaming Scottie since he didn't write any of the skit, it was cool to see him on there but the content was :puking:

Any nationwide reminders that we are the CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD is good. Lame yes. But good. The only thing missing was a Pods comeback to the Red Sox comment with "Oh, we swept them too."

Yeah. I watched from the beginning of the show until that point, and now it is off. I haven't watched it in over a year, it is absolute garbage now. I honestly laughed only once during the entire show. They are more focused on expressing their political agenda than providing comedy. Maybe I will try it again in another year.

No kidding. Actually, I think I can remember--I watched it a lot with some buddies my senior year of high school and then for a little while my freshman year of college. I think part way through that year though, it just started getting worse and worse, and it's been a good 3 or 4 years now since I watched it much at all.

That is what I hate about this show, it's all political whining, I hear it all day at work :rolleyes:. It's so old hat now.

And being a Roscoe Village Sox fan, a mile from Wrigley, I find the whole Madison dividing line annoying. Just because something is close to you doesn't mean you automatically like it. I'd rather drive to a good grocery store than walk to a dumpy one.

It could have been much more amusing if it involved singing Journey live or something.

Atleast he made me laugh then the rest of the show, I hate snl even more though for making him spit out that cursed line.

Cellozzi-Ettelson were nationally known with their "where you always save more money" line. There were national commericals for Wendy's, Pizza Hut, and some other places like that where they would say that line.

But the skit sucked. WE WERE NEVER ****ING CURSED.

Recap?? Anyone? Bueller?

The basic gist of it was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler insisting they were longtime White Sox fans from way back when, since they were both from Chicago. As Pods continued to ask them questions about where they lived, they continued to prove their ignorance of the south side and White Sox (calling it "Comiskey Field", for example). Pods finally told them, "You know, if you're Cubs fans, it's OK," and they finally admitted that they were Cub fans and one of them was a Red Sox fan. Pods said this championship was for all the cursed teams and all of Chicago. For Skokie? Yes. Wilmette? Yes. Schaumburg? Uh, no.

10-29-2005, 11:40 PM
Maybe he meant it as a synonym for 'misfortune'. Whatever way you spin it, he was reading off a script written by some dunce that helps out with the rest of those hilarious skits. Too bad nobody probably watches this anymore, we'd probably have more fans (that could be bad too), mainly the ladies, the blonde was getting weak in the knees. "Look at the face on him!". You wish girl, someone hasn't heard of his fiance...

And even that cast wasn't all that good.

It wasn't a bad appearance, I never expect much from these things when an athlete does a walk on, or hosts. The only time I think I ever laughed when an athlete hosted was the Joe Montana episode, maybe Michael Jordan.

Anyway, I never thought I would hear "Moo and Oink" on SNL, that was what I got the biggest kick out of honestly. Though I haven't seen a Celozzi & Ettleson commercial in like ten years, i thought they went their separate ways and opened separate car dealerships.

It was what it was. It's just nice to see him on there. And yeah, the show largely sucked. Though I kinda giggled at the Aunt Jemima thing.

A few of the Jordan things were funny.

"The First Black Harlem Globetrotter" skit with Jordan was hilarious, as was when he was on Stuart Smally; and the Super Fans skit when he did the "Da Bulls! Da Bulls! Da Bulls!" dance with Farley still makes me laugh.

Nice to see Pods on a national show.

A shame that the bit was so lame. Fey and Pohler really did live in Chicago for several years when they worked at Second City, so they were probably the ones who wrote that. I'm sure they found it amusing when they cooked it up.

It was just an opportunity wasted. They could have done jokes on sweeping the Red Sox (hell, they could've brought Johnny Damon back on there to appear with Scott), or even a series of jokes about how the Yankees and Red Sox were expected to play again. Instead they made it self-referential, which is just lazy ("I used to live in Chicago -- I'm a big White Sox fan!" Hardy-har-har).

SNL goes through phases from funny to lame, and it's in a lame mode now. It's all in the writing. Rocky and Bullwinkle had the poorest, cheesiest cartoon animation, but the writing was so good it didn't matter. SNL has had stretches like that, but its not in one of them now. It's just a pity that Scott got wheeled out there surrounded by unfunny jokes.

You should stop making assumptions. Yes the actor who plays Gob is hilarious (sorry I keep blanking on my name). However Amy Poehler is also very funny, as anyone who has ever seen the Upright Citizens Brigade can tell you. On SNL she is hamstrung by bad writing.

Wow, the show was so bad that my wife was playing with the dog before it started and they both fell asleep about 10 minutes into the show. I almost did until Pods came on. That was horribly unfunny. The only thing was was cool was that Pods was on there and they made some Chicago references. It wasn't very good, but the whole show sucks. They need to get Tina Fey out as head writer and out of the show period.

I think that's the key here for Pods - his people are trying to maximize his marketability while they are able to. Nothing wrong with that, good for him. And I'm sure after he read the sketch he knew it was lame but he was just there to read the lines. It's not like they were going to give him creative input or anything.

Besides, I hear they throw one hell of a party after the show! :D:

Anyone else catch Scott on SNL Weekend Update last night??? I haven't watched at all this season but I my sister and I watched last night. Tina & Amy were taking about the World Series & they broght Scott on. I am pretty sure that anyone who doesn't live here or didn't at some point thought it wasn't funny but we got a kick out of it. Now this isn't word for word but it went something like this....

Tina & Amy are bothing talking about how they are WS fans and that they are from Chicago....

Scott asks where in Chicago are they from...

Amy says Wrigleyville & Tina says Evanston...

He says well people on the northside are ususally cubs fans...

Amy says she takes the red line to Comisnskey Stadium all the time...

Scotts says its Comiskey Park and acutally that is gone and it US Cellular now...

Amy says that she knows lots of people on the South Side...

Scott asks who?

She says JJ & Thelma.... *good times.. LOL*

Then Scotts asks if they are really WS fans, it is ok if they aren't... and Tina admits she is but then says Amy is a RS fan....

Then the both start singing the Moo & Oink and something Chevy where you always save more money...

Scott says something else then that they won for all the cursed teams and all of Chicagoland...

Amy asks even Skokie?

Scott, yes even Skokie...

Tine asks even Wilmette? (woo hoo cause that is where I work)

Scott, yes even Wilmette...

Amy asks even Schaumburg?

Scott says no not Schaumburg....

~So, it was very funny..... & I wanted to share....:D:

I did get a kick out the bit piece that ScoPo had, especially the references to Moo and Oink, Anne Sather and Cellozi Ettelson Chevrolet.

It's great to see the boys get some national recognition off the field.

They should have invited back Mike Myers and Dana Carvet and have Scott on an episode of Wayne World

Amy Poehler, the blonde, is married to the actor who plays Gob Bluth on Arrested Development.


The common thread between those two is that they both are on tv shows. The common difference between them is that one of them is on a great tv show with great writing and the other one is one something that seems like it belongs on a public access channel.

Gob Bluth is one of the funniest characters to grace the TV screen in the last 10 years, so yes, you're correct.

hey guy, you should call that a gob! (whistles)

SNL has been useless for a few years now. The last great cast was with Will Ferral, Chris Kattan, Derral Hammond, Molly Shannon, Norm McDonald, Colin Quinn, Tracy Morgan, Cheri Orteri, etc.Ferrell carried the show, it's been all downhill since he left.
The basic gist of it was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler insisting they were longtime White Sox fans from way back when, since they were both from Chicago.They both worked for a short time in Chicago, but Tina is from Philly and Amy is from Boston.

my point was merely that if I were so inclined to men and I were married to the man who played Gob, I don't think I would be seriously dissatisfied with my marriage. This was opposed to the post I quoted in that post suggesting that Poehler was lusting after Scotty and would be crestfallen to hear about his engagement to Lisa Dergan.

Furthermore, I find Poehler hilarious on Upright Citizens Brigade, one of my favorite shows in the history of television. If you don't that's fine, but don't take shots at her just because she happens to be on a show that is currently the black hole of comedy.

A Victory Auto Wreckers reference would have been nice.
