ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the great sketches in “Saturday Night Live” history came a few years ago, when Christopher Walken was guest-hosting. In this skit, Walken played music producer “THE Bruce Dickinson,” and during a session with the band Blue Oyster Cult, he kept requesting “More cowbell!” from Gene, one of the band members, played by Will Ferrell. (As I’m writing about the skit, I realize it’s probably funnier and makes more sense if you just go watch the original skit here.)
Anyway, here’s the Dallas Mavericks’ version of that sketch, with Dirk Nowitzki as Bruce Dickinson and, well, all the members of the Mavs as Gene. I gotta have more cowbell!
