    NFL Quarterbacks Turned SNL Hosts

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Super Bowl MVP Peyton Manning's acting credits will move beyond his numerous commercials in a few weeks as he'll be hosting NBC's Saturday Night Live.

    The Colts quarterback said he would appear on the show on March 24, which happens to be his 31st birthday.

    "I figure this is my one shot to be asked," Manning said. "I'm sort of looking forward to it, but I am a little bit nervous."

    Manning has most famously poked fun of himself in an ad for cell-phone company Sprint Nextel Corp., where he dons a fake mustache and toupee to "disguise" himself while rooting for the Colts. In a MasterCard commercial, Manning posed as a "fan of the fan," cheering on workers at a grocery store and coffee shop.

    SNL isn't funny anymore, Manning might help it a little bit.

    A sketch-by-sketch review of Peyton's performance on Saturday night.

    II. "United Way"
    Synopsis: A mock United Way/NFL commercial that includes Peyton throwing passes and knocking down numerous children, teaching the kids how to break into a car, and tattooing his face into a young boy's leg.
    Highlight: "Get your head out of you're a--, you suck" to a 10-year old boy who drops a pass.
    Thoughts: Perfection. Everything you'd ever want in a first sketch. Arguably the best sketch all season.
    Grade: A+
    Kinda sad that the show peaked 5 minutes in, but that was about right.

    Re: Manning to host SNL

    I actually liked most of SNL this weekend.
    I though Manning did a good job poking fun at himself.

    Another first round upset: Arizona losing to Purdue. This year, Arizona was supposed to make the Elite Eight, except once again — turned out to be the tournament's Peyton Manning.
    That was pretty damn funny.
    And I loved the Sanjaya thing in Weekend Update.
    Dan Akroyd crying was funny as hell!

    When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?

    Agreed, I think it's pretty cool that Peyton Manning has a pretty good sense of humor and doesn't hesitate to make fun of himself. I thought he did an acceptional job this weekend. Not a big SNL fan (anymore), but that was a pretty good episode.
