`SNL' Comics Attempt To Talk Sports
Wednesday, January 27, 2010 17:21 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Saturday Night Live comics Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis are ready to talk sports well, sort of.
The duo will host SNL Presents: Sports All-Stars this Sunday (Jan. 31) on NBC, a special featuring the best sports- themed sketches from SNL history.
Theyll be rolling the clips as Stink & Twinkle, SNLs crazy ESPN sports commentators they made up as a joke one day while watching football together.
Its as close to the sports action as Forte can get, since he rarely mimics athletes in SNL skits.
He remembers putting on a track suit as Bruce Jenner once, but he didnt have any lines.
For Sudeikis, his favorite sports-themed portrayal was the time he dressed up as tough, hothead basketball coach Bobby Knight.
He got to wear a red sweater and yell a lot at his co-stars but laments, I didnt get to throw a chair or anything.
