I was so excited. They had not announced the host or musical guest yet, but I immediately accepted. As you may have seen now, it was Selena Gomez and Post Malone, and it was as thrilling as I could have dreamed of.

I've been watching Saturday Night Live since the beginning. I remember my family laughing uproariously at George Carlin on the first episode. The brilliant minds that have graced all of the 47 seasons of America's longest-running sketch-comedy show. It's always been my favorite.

This was my "Bucket List", something that I've worked at for most of my life, in the hope that some year, it would pay off. I enjoyed every minute. Where we live, there are a lot of you that may have worked on the show in some capacity, and after seeing it in person, you are so lucky to have been a part of this beautiful institution. I'd love to hear more about your involvement, it really fascinates me. So, well establishing myself as a Super Fan - Here we go.
