Fans Want Brian Wilson To Host ‘Saturday Night Live’

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Fear the Beard – perhaps on “Saturday Night Live.”

World Series champion Brian Wilson is getting the Betty White treatment from fans on Facebook. They want the San Francisco Giants’ quirky closer to host “SNL” and have started a campaign to get him, and his jet-black beard, an invite.

White hosted “SNL” last spring after a drive by more than 500,000 people on the social networking site landed her the gig. The fan page for Wilson went up about a week ago and he’s received more than 4,400 “like” votes.

Wilson had 48 saves this season and became a fan favorite in the Bay Area for his thick beard and entertaining interviews.

A page to host “SNL” for teammate Tim Lincecum had only 116 “likes” on Thursday.
