Leslie Jones is better than all of us at watching the Olympics

She’s back!

One of the most delightful things to come out of Rio 2016 was Saturday Night Live cast member and comedian Leslie Jones live-tweeting throughout the Olympics. Her takes on the games got so popular that NBC eventually sent her to Rio to hang out with Team USA. Now that Pyeongchang 2018 has arrived, so has her Olympic live-tweeting, and we’re so thankful for it. If you’re not following the Olympics along with Leslie Jones, you’re missing out.

I really hope NBC sends her back to the Olympics again. SNL is on break right now while the games are going on, which means she could definitely use that break time to geek out for Team USA in Pyeongchang. Get on it, NBC!
