To paraphrase Feist, "1,2,3,4, tell me that you'll win some more." A five game winning streak would be nice and a first for this season. It would also makes sense if this team lost their next three in a row.
Maybe the return of Pedro means all the world to this team. Who knows? I've given up trying to figure them out. Thankfully we have Keith at these games to talk about Coney Island and oral sex.
(One more Pedro note before we get to the Keith highlights: I don't think I've ever heard a pitcher thank so may people after going through rehab. He sounded genuine when even talking about the minor leaguers he faced. It was a pretty classy post-game speech to these ears.)
--Keith is concerned for Mr. Red
(Mr. Red is prominently displayed behind home plate, inspiring this discussion.)
Gary: Have they thought about some orthodonture for Mr. Red?
Keith: Has he got any tonsils in there?
--Keith likes Pedro's comeback
Keith: He just has a little more than the average bear.
--Keith watches the news on the road
Keith: Did you see the sharks at Coney Island?
Gary: Well, there's always been sharks at Coney Island
Keith: There was one that was six feet long--and they even got footage of it.
Gary: You mean footage of the ones in the water.
Keith: Ah, yes. But I was amazed. I didn't need a coffee after I saw that.
--Keith and Gary have dirty minds
Gary: The new Reds pitcher is Jon Coutlangus.
Keith: Oh, oh, yeah. We mean it with that name.
Gary: Yes, it's very carefully pronounced.
Keith: That's a tongue twister, isn't it?
