Although the fabulous Mike Rice/Melissa McCarthy spoof is getting all the attention from this week's SNL, there was another sports tie-in. Kenan Thompson was back as Charles Barkley. SNL interviewed him during weekend update after the conclusion of the Michigan/Syacuse game. Thompson's impression is astonishingly good. He has the speech patterns and inflection down cold, the mannerisms are dead on and the best part is when he says of CBS hiring him to be an analyst for the NCAA Tournament, "They must be crazy, I don't know anything about college basketball!"
It's funny because it's true.
@awfulannouncing Charles Barkley impressions became played out/stopped being funny a long time ago...
@awfulannouncing on sunday a golf channel host used chink in armor in reference to an asian woman player. Please see why he wasn't suspended
@awfulannouncing still can't compare to Chuck on SNL playing one-on-one and punishing Barney
