The confusion around Tom Brady retiring provided fodder for “Saturday Night Live’s” long-running “Weekend Update” sketch on Saturday.
That news came down just in time for “Saturday Night Live’s” airing, as Brady’s longtime rival, Peyton Manning, was a guest on “Weekend Update” with Colin Jost and Michael Che. When asked by Jost about Brady, Manning likened it to hit Netflix series “Emily In Paris.”
“Yeah, I’m not sure it’s true,” Manning said, via Boston.com. “I think it’s probably just speculation, but if it were me, I probably would retire, too, if it gave me more time to watch ‘Emily in Paris.’ And I really think for Tom right now, it’s just a tough decision between balancing his career and relationships — sort of like Emily.”
Candidly, “Emily In Paris” might be more interesting than the Brady “will he/won’t he” discourse.
Also, Manning was pretty good in this spot. Maybe Brady dragging out the retirement thing a few more weeks will lend itself to more Manning cameos on “SNL.” That would be fun.
