Some funny stuff in there, especially the bikini girl training staff. But we can't lie — this would have been 10-times funnier if it had been Jay Mohr doing his Tracy Morgan impression for three minutes.

But there's something wickedly funny about John Tortorella's Sean Avery speech being applied to a fictional Tracy Morgan comedy character.
