When you go see a dress rehearsal of SNL, you bring your Tina Fey and Amy Poehler action figures. 

I emailed, just assuming that my plea would fall into a spam email box somewhere, deep in the bowels of NBC Universal. Well, it didn't - the right people saw it, and I won tickets to see a dress rehearsal of SNL Weekend Update - Summer Edition.

Had to pull some strings to get off work and finance the air fare, but we made it. And, since they helped me win the tickets, I brought my Tina and Amy action figures with me for a return trip to NYC. Enjoy!
