Stephen A. Smith and "Boston Powers" showed up on-line in this weekend's edition of "Weekend Update" on Saturday Night Live's website, which prompted us to offer our top five sports moments of this past season. Enjoy the laughs.

"Boston Powers" is back - and he's got a new enemy - "Dr. Wicked Evil."

"Saturday Night Live" posted a web-exclusive video featuring the "Catch Phrase Kings of Comedy Tour 3" that somehow missed the cut in this week's lackluster (at least when it came to the comedy) season-ending episode.

The "Wicked Horny" Powers (Seth Meyers), complete in 1960's-era attire and his Red Sox cap, returned to the Tour's line-up, which this time includes host Mick Jagger as English comedian Denny "A Bit Weird Innit?" Cumberbatch.

Dr. Wicked Evil's catchphrase: "Go Yankees!"

The lone sports-related skit of the week came via a web exclusive video of bombastic TV analyst Stephen A. Smith (Jay Pharoah) offering LeBron James and the Miami Heat some shooting advice while proudly claiming that Mario Chalmers is the father of his child.

To close things out, here are our top five sports-themed moments from this past season (and one almost-sports themed in name at least):

Tim Tebow meets Jesus. Didn't help against the Patriots:

Eli Manning stands up for frustrated "Little Brothers" everywhere:

Jeremy Lin left everyone going "Lin-sane." Seems like a million years ago:

And here's another a different kind of Lind-sanity:

Charles Barkley was a better Shaq than Shaq:

Finally, the side-effects of steroids don't always include more home runs:
