Peyton Manning on SNL


I caught a little bit of Saturday Night Live last night with Peyton Manning as the host, and was pleasantly surprised by how well he did. I guess the 13,756 commercials he's done have served him well, because he seems to have a good sense for comedic timing.

Also, I've gotta say, he did one sketch late in the show with his shirt off, and I was shocked that he's not more built. From what you could see on the camera, he just looked like a regular guy. To be honest, with the arm that he has, I was kind of expecting Popeye-esque biceps.

Anyway, he acquitted himself well, and I bet he'll get an invite back to the SNL stage sometime in the future.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to catch it... of course, even if I could I don't know if I would have watched. SNL as a whole has jumped the shark. :(

I agree that Peyton did a surprisingly good job. Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to comment. I've added you to my blogroll.

I was pleasantly surprised by how un-Popeye-esque (but certainly not flabby) Manning was...that coupled with his wry performances during the entire evening and in many of his commercials confirms that he's among a rare species of today's pro athletes: those who don't take themselves too seriously. And that's refreshing.
