ESPN First Take has turned into a caricature of itself in recent years, and even more so since Stephen A. Smith became the main character with a group of other animated debaters.
One of the main opponents for Stephen A. each week is Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin, who is more than willing to get into shouting matches in the early hours of the morning.
This weekend, Saturday Night Live created a parody of the morning show that didn’t make the air. However, we now get to see the skit which starred Molly Qerim (Chloe Fineman), Stephen A. Smith (Chris Redd), and Michael Irvin (Kenan Thompson).
I’m not usually one to toot the Saturday Night Live horn, but the skit and impersonations were spot on — especially Kenan Thompson’s Michael Irvin impression.

For once, SNL actually provided some quality entertainment. Well done.
