Following a big Week 16 in the NFL, maybe you’re ready to tune into FS1’s Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe to see their takes on the Seahawks’ inexplicable home loss to the Cardinals, the Steelers’ costly defeat to the Jets, and the Bengals clinching the No. 1 overall pick by losing to the Dolphins.
We already know how Bayless feels about the Cowboys falling to the Eagles, which likely cost Dallas a playoff bid and the NFC East title, thanks to him staging this video for Twitter:

If you have Monday off because of Christmas, we don’t want to tell you how to spend your well-earned vacation time. Maybe you want some shouty sports debate in the background while you finish off (or begin) that gift-wrapping. Perhaps you need that yelling to pump you up for some last-minute shopping.
But you could also spare yourself some time by just watching one minute of Jamie Foxx imitate Shannon Sharpe instead of two-and-a-half hours of Undisputed.

OK, there’s no Bayless in that video. But even if he’s mostly just saying “Skip… Skip, Skip, Skip,” Foxx simulates the Undisputed experience pretty well there. Imagine him saying “Ezekiel Elliott” instead of “LeBron James,” and that might be Monday’s show for you.
For Foxx, Sharpe is the latest in his handful of sports impersonations. Although his Doc Rivers is probably better:
Then there’s Foxx doing Stephen A. Smith in front of Stephen A. Smith. Doing an impersonation with the real person right there always makes it funnier:
Fox will televise Super Bowl LIV in February. Is there any chance the network can get Jamie Foxx on during its pregame coverage to imitate Shannon Sharpe? Maybe Sharpe can play the role of Skip Bayless for a bit. Shannon vs. Shannon!
Or could FS1 bring Foxx on to debate Skip for a segment on Undisputed during Super Bowl week? Skip would be a good sport about that, right?
“Skip… Skip, Skip, Skip… !”
