Besides the two games between the Mets and Phillies today at Citizens Bank Park today, there were some priceless comic moments on SNY-TV unrelated to the games themselves.
- Near the end of Game 2 when David Wright and co-conspirators decorated Castro’s hat unbeknownst to him. (Methinks everyone was getting a tad punchy. Thank goodness they were able to pull the win out. Otherwise, this stuff would not have been funny in the least!)
- Kevin Burkhardt and the Valentin mustache fans and their T-shirts and seeing Valentin’s face in the dugout when one of the T-shirts made its way to him. Delightful!
- My personal favorite: when the Philly Phanatic made his way into the Philadelphia TV booth when Keith was making a guest appearance there. The Phanatic–as might be expected–made a big to-do about this intruder stepping over from the enemy lines.
I wondered, though, if they sat down over a beer if they wouldn’t just hit it off, Keith and the Phanatic.
In fact, they might just make great colleagues. Imagine them both in the booth together: Keith doing play-by-play and PP doing color (ar ar) commentary!
