Hockey, the sport of...
Okay, in all honesty, we couldn't fill out the end of that sentence to save our lives. In fact, we – like most people in the United States – really don't know hockey. And neither does Chance the Rapper, apparently, because he did a skit on Saturday Night Live that perfectly demonstrated how every non-hockey fan feels when they're presented with the specter of men in ice-skates bashing each other.
On Saturday, Chance The Rapper was the host of Saturday Night Live.He did several skits, but the one that stood out most – to hockey fans, at least – was the Sports Announcer skit. In it, Chance (real name, Chancellor Bennet) plays a Knicks reporter named Lazlo Holmes who is forced to cover the New York Rangers home game against the Edmonton Oilders when the usual reporter goes on paternity leave.
Hilarity ensues, because Chance, like most of us, doesn't actually understand hockey.
This SNL sketch with Chance the Rapper as a clueless hockey reporter has me in stitches right now.— Chris Hine (@Chris Hine)1511069787.0
When presented with an interviewee, the unpronounceably-named Brady Skjei (who is based on an actual professional hockey player) Chance's reaction is priceless.

Things don't get any easier when Chance is asked about the Ranger offense.
