SNL’s Jason Sudekis as American Football Coach in London


You can count on one hand the number of soccer-related posts ever housed on this blog. That’s thousands of posts over nearly seven years. Virtually zero soccer. There is a reason for those facts. HOWEVER, make soccer relevant to me — by adding humor and comparisons to American football (and maybe a subtle jab or two aimed at the “most beautiful game”)– and then, my friends, you have a winner. Congratulations to SNL’s Jason Sudekis for this hilarious sketch that managed to make me chuckle and compel written words on the Legend that involve the sport of soccer.

In this spot, Sudekis is an American football coach hired to lead one of London’s Premier League squads. Sure, it’s all a somewhat heavy-handed plug for NBC Sports’ upcoming coverage of the Barclays Premier League, but we’ll give it a pass on this rare occasion.

Note: Some Deadspin commenters have indicated that the “assistant” head coach played in the skit is real life Tottenham manager Andre Villas Boas. If that’s the case, extra points to that man for a job stunningly well done. We can neither confirm nor deny, although the likeness on screen is there. The accent though simply seems to good to be that quickly learned and acted with such aplomb.

    or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    It is triggered by the fire communicated in the article I browsed.

    Guante. I was excited enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.

    Is it only me or does it look like like some of the responses appear like they are coming from brain dead visitors?

    😛 And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to follow everything
