Seth Myers and Amy Poehler say 'Really!?!' to SI writer who dislikes women's sports

Comedians Seth Myers and Amy Poehler had some fun last night at the expense of Sports Illustrated writer Andy Benoit, who wrote on Twitter this week that "women's sports in general not worth watching."

Myers, now host of "Late Night" on NBC, and Poehler revived a bit they used to perform on "Saturday Night Live" called "Really!?!" to defend the Women's World Cup and go after Benoit (who, by the way, has since apologized).

"I think a lot of people would love to watch you say that to Serena Williams," Poehler says at the start of the bit. "Really?"

Later in the segment, Poehler admits there might not be anything in women's sports that compares to a "LeBron James windmill dunk," but she says women have a lot in common with the Cleveland Cavaliers star.

"Much like LeBron in the finals, we often find ourselves asking 'Hey, can I get some help around here?'" she said.

Myers, meanwhile, says the Women's World Cup sure beats watching the NFL draft, "a full day to find out if your favorite college player is going to have to go mansion shopping in Jacksonville or Tampa Bay."
