'SNL' Slams NYC Mayor for Blizzard Bust in Cold Open
Saturday Night Live sent a mighty frosty message to NYC mayor Bill de Blasio during this weekend's cold open.
In the sketch, Seattle Seahawks stars Richard Sherman (Jay Pharoah) and Marshawn Lynch (Kenan Thompson) discussed Sunday's Super Bowl.
Sherman talked to one Seahawks fan, who said of the team, "I've been a die-hard fan since the beginning … of 2013."
Sherman then showed a photo of de Blasio and berated him for overhyping the treacherous blizzard that never was.
"I've seen bigger blizzards at Dairy Queen," Sherman lamented. He also referred to DeflateGate as "Ballgazi, aka the e-ball-a crisis."
Host J.K. Simmons did not appear in the segment. Video of the segment is below.
