Crazy Keith's Corner: So Easy, Keith Could Do It

Our hero Mr. Hernandez was back in the booth last night--and the Geico caveman was in the "Dream Seats," making Gary, Keith and Ron cackle:

Kevin Burkhardt: So does that ad in the airport still upset you?
Caveman: That's not me in that commercial--do you think we all look alike? This interview is over.

--Keith is okay with losing out to Wes Parker for the All-Time Gold Glove team
Keith: I was crestfallen. Oh well. There's always next year.
Gary: You mean the 51st anniversary team?
Ron: You've got 25 more years in you, you could make the 75th.

--Gary knows a different brand of German
(Gary and Keith talk about Dodgers pitcher Joe Beimel and his German last name)
Gary: I believe Beimel is German for "Cutting your hand on a shot glass."

--Keith likes cereal
(After David Wright made his third amazing defense play of the night)
Keith: Whatever David had in his Wheaties today, keep doing it!

The weekend games are FOX and ESPN (sounds like WFAN time Sunday night--F Joe Morgan). But as a treat, Ralph Kiner is going to join Tim McCarver during the third inning of the FOX game today in a reunion of the Mets broadcast team of 1983 to 1994. If anything funny happens (yeah, right) I'll let you know.

What was even funnier was the riffing after the Caveman-- Ronnie sniffing that the Gecko is politer than the caveman, and Keith piggybacking the the Gecko is more evolved than the Caveman. ;)

PS: I can't believe I forgot this, because this was another Ron Darling spit-take moment:

No. 1 sign that Ronnie has been in New York for too long-- his use of the Sicilianism "U-gotz" on the air. A colloquial pronunciation of "un cazzo"-- meaning "nothing," or literally-- "dick."
