Jackie Rogers Jr.’s $100,000 Jackpot Wad

Best SNL sketch ever? That might be a tough contest. I got in a conversation about this one this weekend and I’m surprised how many of my friends have this sketch memorized. I have it memorized because I used to tape SNL on a tape recorder because only Donald Trump owned a VCR. I still have dozens of tapes of SNL from 1980 with an 8 year old me laughing my ass off at Buckweat Sings For The Kids

Best SNL sketch ever? That might be a tough contest. I got in a conversation about this one this weekend and I’m surprised how many of my friends have this sketch memorized. I have it memorized because I used to tape SNL on a tape recorder because only Donald Trump owned a VCR back then. I still have dozens of cassettes of SNL from 1980 with an 8 year old me laughing my ass off at Buckweat Sings For The Kids and strangely silent durng the Grenada jokes. This was a unique SNL cast as all of them were known talents and only signed to one season. The next season I finally got a VCR and the first show I taped was SNL from that Robert Downey Jr., Anthony Michael Hall season. Ugh. Great, I got a VCR now I can finally tape SNL. Who the fuck is Terry Sweeney?
