Thomas Brady has the "best cannon!" 'Saturday Night Live' parodies the Patriots and the Eagles the night before the Super Bowl.

True to form, Saturday Night Live ran a hilarious sketch the night before the big game spoofing the fans of both teams. 

 

For their version this year, the sketch comedy show brought back some old cast members to lead groups of fans from New England (Rachel Dratch) and Philadelphia (Tina Fey) to a fictionalized meeting of the colonies in 1775. 

Call us the Eagles, cuz we ready to fly. ... Like eagles, we Philadelphians are swift, we are deadly, and our eyes are all a little too close together.

"We are the Patriots of New England, and we are unstoppable!" Dratch began shouting. 

 

"Do we even know how to lose? No!" colonialist Alex Moffat, who talks about quarterback "Captain Thomas Brady" having the "best cannon."

 

"'Dynasty.' Thats the word you're looking for: 'dynasty,'" Natalie Portman says in her best New England accent.

 

"We eat the most lobsters ... we got the most rocks in the soil, so how do ya like us now?" asks one of the Patriots.

 

"How ya doin'?" asks Fey alongside a couple of her compatriots. "Philly's mad strong from the little babies to all our mom-moms and pop-pops, wes ready to fight ... so grease up them poles because Philly is going to win and one of these guys is going to punch a police horse."

 

"Call us the Eagles, cuz we ready to fly. ... Like eagles, we Philadelphians are swift, we are deadly, and our eyes are all a little too close together," she continued.
