Last year before NBC began their Premier League coverage, they rolled out a series of skits starring Jason Sudeikis as Coach Ted Lasso, an American football coach that had just been named the manager of Tottenham Hotspur. The skits were hilarious, and NBC’s Premier League coverage thrived.
Going into year two, Lasso is back – and he’s working as an analyst with NBC.
There are so many great lines and moments in this skit, but I think his interactions with Rebecca Lowe are the best. And the final punchline of him mispronouncing Leicester? Perfect.
