SNL Combines Lance Armstrong and Mati Te'o Stories Into One Hilarious Skit

The entire sports world this past week has been absolutely abuzz about two stories. No, not the return of the NHL or even the NFL playoffs.

Lance Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey and the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax.

One story is more ridiculous than the next.  Armstrong's confession seemed to be half-hearted, showing no real feeling for the damage he did to himself, the cycling community and his foundation.  The whole Te'o story is just embarrassing really.  Who meets someone online anymore?  And why was everyone lying about knowing her and seeing her and sending her things?  I don't even want to get into the details because of how stupid he and everyone involved is.

But I digress.  Above is a video from last night's edition of "Saturday Night Live," with the opening sketch parodying "Piers Morgan Tonight."  He interviews Armstrong and Te'o (and Jodie Foster at the end which isn't funny), and the cast does a great job of making fun of these two ridiculous and embarrassing situations.  Enjoy.
