Where's Chevy Chase when you need him?

Live, from New York! It's ... the first reason you've had in years to watch Saturday Night Live! In what has to be a first for this once-great TV show, it will be hosted tomorrow night by a cyclist. Well, not just "a" cyclist. More like "the" cyclist. Lance himself. And if you can guess who the musical guest will be, well, you won't win a damned thing because it's pretty freakin' obvious who the musical guest will be now, isn't it?

Actually, there has been one small reason to watch SNL in recent years — Tina Fey (SCHWING!) — but, as cute as she is, she's just not cute enough to inspire me to endure the rest of the show to see her on Weekend Update. Call me an old fart, but I miss the old days of SNL.

Speaking of old TV shows, I always thought Sulu was a little too attentive when Captain Kirk was on the bridge. Now I know why.

Overheard on the L Train in NYC:

Hobo: Hey, does anyone have some spare chicken?

Girl: Ha, ha, "chicken"? Sorry, I only had room for one rotisserie in my bag . . . and this one's for me.
