SNL Highlight: Linsanity gets punny

Last night’s Saturday Night Live was the best in a long while! SNL always puts on their top notch writing when an alum comes back to host and Maya Rudolph certainly delivered. It was so solid that I could post basically the entire episode, but in the effort of keeping this brief I’m sharing my personal favorite sketch from the night.

Jeremy Lin has been blowing up the sports world as of late and for good reason – he’s breaking records left and right and breaking stereotypes to boot. As the first strong Asian-American player, it’s understandable that the media have been hyping him up and talking about him non-stop. What should stop though is all the puns – “Linsanity” is one thing, but ESPN’s latest debacle with “Chink in the armor” is another.

Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thomspon officially exhaust the list of Jeremy Lin puns in last night’s cold open. Watch it here:
