Peyton Manning on SNL

In his monologue, Manning made light of his many TV commercials, introduced his family (Archie was there living vicariously, of course), and even took a shot at the Patriots.

The best sketch was the United Way spoof.

It was funny to see Manning, who has been so cautious in promoting a positive image through his TV appearances over the years, berating children and teaching them criminal behavior.

The NCAA pool sketch was rather funny too.

It was funny only because of Amy Poehler, though. The writers threw in too many negative Peyton Manning references for Manning’s character to react to. These wouldn’t come up in a basketball show for one thing, and for another the TV people have always been fawning toward Manning, regardless of his past playoff failures.

And what was up with insisting that he had heard people refer to Peyton Manning as “cute”? That was a far cry from the time Derek Jeter dressed up in drag and said of himself, “Mmm… no… Jeter does not do it for me. He looks like the Rock had sex with a muppet.”
