Keith Hernandez + Florida = Fun, Fun Fun. I really thought Gary Cohen was going to fall off his chair a couple of times. To wit:
--Friday night Gary and Keith mentioned the hot tub in Dolphin Stadium, to which Keith exclaimed: "Hey, If they had pools by the bullpen while I was playing, I would have wanted to be a reliever instead of an everyday player." Then they showed a shot of the pool area, it was a bunch of 14 year-olds in bikinis. Um, watch out for Mr. Hernandez, parents in South Florida.
--Saturday night Keith somehow had a pair of Thunderstix and he was hitting Gary in the head with them. Then just to makes sure no one got the idea to bring them back North, Keith said, "Mr. Wilpon, please don't have these at Shea. You can play the music as loud as you want, just don't have these things." Gary chimed in, "Mr. Wilpon, tear down the Thunderstix."
--And Sunday the Marlins players had their eyeblack drawn down the side of their cheeks...
Keith: "I never could wear that, I could always see it because I have high cheekbones."
Gary: "It's that model's face that you have."
Keith: "Oh yes, thank you, partner."
Alas, Keith is off until the series against the Phillies next week. Maybe Ron Darling can up his craziness for us.
