SNL: The NFL Today and Jimmy the Greek (video)

SNLNFLTodayThese are not easy to find so I’d like to give myself some congratulations for being such a gum shoe. Anyone remember when Jimmy “the Greek” Snyder used to be on “The NFL Today” (on CBS)?

Yeah, he got kicked off for making some pretty racist comments. Here’s the quote:

“The black is a better athlete to begin with because he’s been bred to be that way — because of his high thighs and big thighs that goes up into his back, and they can jump higher and run faster because of their bigger thighs. This goes back all the way to the Civil War when during the slave trading, the owner — the slave owner would breed his big black to his big woman so that he could have a big black kid.”

Yikes. Yeah, he got fired for that. And Saturday Night Live’s take is brilliant with this awesome episode of “The NFL Today” (on CBS), complete with a King Cobra malt liquor commercial.
