If you have made it through life so far without watching Leslie Jones live-tweet an event, allow us to help you rectify that. The SNL cast member and now-NBC Olympics commentator is known for “discovering” things a lot of us already know about and then passionately and hilariously live-tweeting them.

You ever heard of baseball? Well, Jones discovered it two years ago and guess what? Baseball players apparently have good bodies and look fantastic in those tight pants. Who knew? Also in 2016, Leslie discovered a great passion for the Olympics while watching the Summer Games in Rio and her impassioned tweeting not only caught the attention of her fans, but also the NBC Network which carries the American Olympic coverage. The network invited her to the games in the second week as part of their commentary crew and she’s back again this year.

Jones is supposed to be meeting athletes, attending Olympic events and generally hyping the games, but where she really shines is right where she started: on Twitter. If her feed is any indication, Leslie has spent the first four days of the Olympics surfing through different events and commenting on how difficult everything looks and how incredible these athletes are to be able to pull it off.

Snowboarding, speed skating, figure skating, hockey, you name it. If it’s happening at the Olympics, Leslie is watching and letting you know how she feels about it. She’s not just covering the Americans at the games either. If someone is good at what they do, you better believe Jones is going to let you know about it. At the Team Figure Skating event Sunday night, she broke down every performance and then commended us Canadians on our golden win. It looks like Leslie is just impressed as the rest of us at the human marvel that is Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Especially when one wrong move could result in the removal of one of Scott’s more, um, intimate extremities.

Thanks, Leslie. We do have a lot of ice and we do like to think that it gives us some sort of superhuman advantage. Go Canada!

She also makes the noises we all make at home when watching these incredible athletes use their bodies in ways that don’t seem possible for human beings. How are cross-country skiers not screaming for the entire race?

She even comments on those super annoying commercials that we’re all forced to watch every fifteen minutes or so. Are there seriously only five different commercials on this channel? That can’t be right. Play something else!

Seriously, next time you’re watching an Olympic event, you’re going to want to have Leslie’s Twitter feed open too. Chances are she’s watching it and tweeting it. She’s also been known to watch more than one at once (we’ve all been there) and tweet them both. Now that’s Olympic-level commentary.
