David Wells spent 2 hours 40 minutes sweating bullets and striking out eleven batters en route to the first perfect game ever thrown by a Yankee.
en route to the first perfect game ever thrown by a Yankee.
The ratio of "working" to "doing drugs and partying" is pretty well correlated with the quality of the show, despite the examples set by Farley and Belushi.
Can anyone summarize the postgame bender for those of us who haven't seen the Wolf of Wall Street?
Was 1998 some notorious drug party that I missed out on?
That late 90s SNL cast was pretty good. They got a lot of crap at the time, but I think they were mostly suffering a reputation hangover from the last couple of Sandler-Spade-Rock-Farley years when those guys were focused on their movie careers and REALLY phoning in it (and Dana Carvey and Phil Hartman weren't around to bail them out). Also the "transition season" with Jeannine Garafalo and David Koechner and what have you which was just sad and upsetting (although not as bad as the mid-80s transition season with Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Downey Jr). The cheerleader sketches sucked, of course, but the Ferrell years were pretty good overall. I feel like the Will Forte/Tina Fey years and Kristen Wiig/Andy Samberg/Bill Hader years were better appreciated when they were still airing and that was probably thanks in part to Ferrell, Hammond, Gasteyer and co. rehabilitating the image of the show.
Realizing he was just Belushi reimaged, I think I'd also take Farley over Belushi.
