Then the entire SNL season premiere went downhill from there. It seems that Michael FRED PHELPS can only play one persona - an Olympic-sized, 23-year old, perpetually-awkward teenager - and it's not that funny, really. At least he tried. At least he won eight gold medals this year. However, learning to achieve charisma by using either self-deprecating humor or self-aware, pseudo-arrogance would do Champion Phelps some good...in extending his time in the spotlight.
Okay, the Quiz Bowl sketch between undereducated public school students and miseducated home school students was a bit funny.
