Astros, Knicks ridiculed on SNL Weekend Update

Michael Che with new Houston Astros mascot Cheatie the Camera 2/29/2020

The Houston Astros and New York Knicks were the targets of jokes during the Weekend Update segment of this week's episode of Saturday Night Live.

The new look for the Phillie Phanatic inspired SNL writers with an idea of a new mascot for the Houston Astros.

"The Philadelphia Phillies unveiled a new design for their team mascot, the Phillie Phanatic, while the Houston Astros have revealed their new mascot: Cheatie the Camera."
Seriously, the Houston Astros are cheaters and should have their 2017 World Series championship taken away, but MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred doesn't have the guts to do it.

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been an embarrassment for two decades and continue to be an endless source of jokes.

"20,000 high school students in New York City got to see the cast of the Broadway hit 'To Kill a Mockingbird' performed at Madison Square Garden. And no surprise, the cast beat the Knicks by 25 points."

Knicks fans hold out hope that one day James Dolan will sell the team, but that's not happening anytime soon.
