  • The Devil appeared on “Saturday Night Live”‘s “Weekend Update” and quit his job upon learning the details of the Penn State scandal. Because people who rape children (and people who protect child rapists!) are the kind of evil even the Devil wants nothing to do with. [Hulu]
  • Did you know that Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach who is accused of child sexual assault on eight minors, was released on a mere $100,000 unsecured bail? Which he doesn’t have to pay unless he fails to show up for a court hearing? And that, despite the prosecutor’s request, he doesn’t have to wear a leg monitor? Hmm, wonder if this gentle treatment has anything to do with the fact that the judge, Leslie Dutchcot, is a volunteer with The Second Mile? You know, the children’s charity that Sandusky set up and used as a way of meeting his victims. [Deadspin]
  • A friend of mine — also the husband of one of my dearest friends and the father of my favorite honorary “niece” – owns a very popular swimming school for children in New York City. He has written a compelling blog post about what responsibility coaches hold both on and off the field (and in and out of the pool). [Cap And Goggles] Keep reading »

My favorite sketch from this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was definitely the one in which, one by one, a team of coworkers admits that when they need a good cry, they put on Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s true — I don’t think I can think of another song that makes my eyes moisten so quickly. I even lip-sync emphatically; it’s soothing. I especially like the quick shout out to “Friday Night Lights” — I still need the occasional cry when I think about Coach and Tami Taylor no longer being on TV. Sniff … sniff … Time to open iTunes and put on some Adele.

Besides having a mad crush on host Charlie Day, part of the reason I was so psyched for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was I couldn’t wait to see how the show handled Kim Kardashian’s divorce announcement. And I was not disappointed. The show did not hold back in its takedown of Kim’s 72-day marriage in an “ad” for E!’s “Kim’s Fairytale Divorce.” From “Kim,” “Kourtney,” and “Khloe”‘s monotone Hollywood whine to Bruce Jenner’s overdone facelift to Kris Jenner’s desperate desire to be seen as one of the sisters, the skit was almost — almost — too mean. And then there was Kris Humphries’ … well … you’ll see. Just watch!

Whether you’re surrounded by suburban moms or you get your suburban mom fix from Lifetime’s signature “women in peril” made-for-TV movies, you had to love this “Saturday Night Live” skit about a game show called “What’s Wrong With Tanya?” Anna Faris, Kristen Wiig and Vanessa Bayer fretted and panicked over just what’s wrong with a precious daughter. Did Tanya give birth in the school bathroom during prom? Is she illiterate? So many things to worry about! And Bill Hader is extra-creepy as the stock dude-who-is-up-to-no-good. Oh, Lifetime, I love you. [NBC.com] Keep reading »

Anyone else convinced Anna Faris on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend is going to be baller? I, for one, am psyched to see her loopy-loo goofy girl humor go head to head with Kristen Wiig. Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll bring that hottie husband of hers, Chris Pratt, along for the ride, too. [NBC]
