Betty White SNL: 10 Athletes Who Are Playing Like Betty White
Betty White got done hosting one of the most successful Saturday Night Live's in years, and the feisty old broad is enjoying one of her most popular stretches ever.
One of the reasons she's become so popular is because of her hilarious Snickers commercial where she gets her butt kicked around the football field as a player who's hungry so he's "playing like Betty White out there."
As a salute to our favorite white haired lady, here are 10 Athletes Who Have Been Playing Like Betty White.
I doubt any of them could come up with a retort like "that's not what your girlfriend said last night," though.
Kimbo Slice, the former poster boy of MMA, who landed his own ESPN: The Magazine cover just got his butt kicked, again.
Matt Mitrione destroyed him in two rounds and the street brawler got cut almost as fast by UFC boss Dana White. He may look scary, but this tiger fights more like a kitten.
The once mighty Big Papi has turned into nothing more than an expensive liability for the struggling Red Sox.
His new nickname is more like the Big Pop-Up, and he seems to be catching more K's than hoorays. Betty White could probably put more wood on the ball lately.
The former No. 1 pick was so bad during his tenure in Oakland that the Raiders couldn't even get a decent trade for him. I guess that's the danger of holding out for a huge contract before you actually accomplish anything.
Now the hefty signal-caller is a man without a team. At least he has his un-earned millions to comfort him.
In five games this playoffs, the future Hall of Famer, who had a terrific regular season, played like an old woman in the playoffs.
His GAA went from 2.24 to 3.01 and his save percentage dropped from .916 to .881 in a 4-1 loss to they Flyers.
Might be time to hang 'em up Marty.
Rasheed Wallace has been so famously bad this year that it prompted Bill Simmons to write an entire column about it.
And as bad as he was during the regular season, with the exception of one good game, he was even worse in the playoffs.
5 ppg and 1.9 rpg. I bet the Celtics are so glad they signed him to a multi-year deal.
Clausen may have played just fine in college, but some shoddy workouts along with Todd McShay crucifying him every chance he got caused Clausen to slip far down the second round.
Making matters worse, Tim Tebow went in the first round and already has the No. 1 selling jersey in the NFL. Not the best month for Clausen.
Then there's this...
A .300 hitter last year and a prime pickup in fantasy baseball, Justin Upton has done nothing good this year.
Batting just above the Mendoza line at .218 he is also one of the league leaders in strikeouts this season as well at 43 in just 31 games.
Come on man, this league needs some good, young stars. That's not gonna cut it.
In the Nuggets terrible Round One loss to the Jazz, J.R. Smith basically mailed in the series. Less than 12 points a game and 37 percent shooting seems even worse when you look at his defense and overall attitude.
If the Nuggets ever want to take the next step, they're going to need this guy to grab a Snickers.
After missing the cut in last week's tournament, everyone expected Tiger to bounce back nicely this week.
Yeah... that wasn't happening. Woods lasted three mediocre rounds before withdrawing with an "injury."
After a great showing at the Masters, Woods is now playing like a Golden Girl on the course. And with his slipped disc, we're not really sure when that will change.
Any Washington Capital
Pick one, any one.
The best team in the NHL by far this year, the Caps laid a giant egg in the first round of the playoffs and got knocked out.
I could put Betty White in a pair of skates and she could put up a better fight than half of those guys.
