Happy Birthday-arino Keith!

It's somebody's birthday today! It's my favorite mustachioed Metsies announcer's big day! In honor of Keith Hernandez's birthday let's take a look back at some of his best Keith-isms in 2010:

"LOL" means "Lots of Laughs!"

If Los Marlins are male, is LAS VEGAS feminine?

I want to grow a "3 Musketeers D'artagnan style mustache."

What happens with the tattoos when you get a big scrape on your arm. When the skin grows back do you lose the tattoo?

I know a bar when I see one!

Yanks Lost! Phils Lost! Why Am I Not happier?

So yesterday was like a wet dream for us Metsies fans. Not only did the Rangers actually hold onto their lead and slaughter the Yanks but The Freak and the Giants beat the Phils too! I mean I should be really happy about this. Logic would dictate this. And you know what I'm thrilled the Yanks and the Phils got their asses handed to them and evil didn't triumph on two occasions yesterday but still I just feel kind of sad. As much as I get my jollies out of seeing Texas and the Giants win I just wish I was watching my beloved NY Metropolitans in the NLCS. I thought I had accepted the fact that the Metsies 2010 season was just an utter nightmare that I had moved on from BUT the playoffs keep reminding me that is not the case. I just keep thinking Dickey could have been starting against Lincecum or Halladay last night if things could have been different. But really it's wrong to think like this because it gets me nowhere. I need to just take pleasure in what I can and really that's seeing the Giants and the Rangers dominating their series at this point. So yep I can do this!

Good Thing It Wasn't Gigantism

"Not EVERYTHING is baseball."
"Yes it is!"

Remember the softball episode of The Simpsons? That is of course a rhetorical question because obviously you have all seen it a million times. Well according to last night's episode of the show, Mike Sciocsia's baseball career wasn't destroyed by the radiation poisoning he got while working at the Springfield Power Plant for one entire week. Who knew?!

(This is Dick Drago's moustache. I've seen better.)

I'm glad Sciocsia is doing well, but personally I would have preferred to see how Steve Sax is doing. Did he find a competent lawyer to get him out of jail for committing every single unsolved crime in New York City? I honestly don't know what he's doing now, so I'll just assume he's still in jail, having his lunch stolen by Snake.

Hulu has the entire episode of "MoneyBART", which has Lisa managing Bart's baseball team and leading them to glory thanks to every eight-year-old girl's best friend, Sabermetrics. Bill James guest stars for about five seconds and Professor Frink defends Zach Greinke's honor. For a baseball and Simpsons nerd like myself, I loved it, even though it was really average at best.

Every Single Time I Channel Surf In October, My Surfing Leads To The Mets!

So folks it's October and well as much as I'm trying to move on and forget about the Mets for a while, television is making this quite an impossible feat. Of course if I go to ESPN or SNY I'm gonna hear all about the Mets hiring and firing moves and that's totally fine but when I watch "Gossip Girl" and the woes of the Mets are mentioned this is just too much. Seriously I watch crap like that to forget about the Metsies! My worlds should not be colliding! Yeah I totally stole that "worlds colliding" business from "Seinfeld."

The Omar Minaya Firing Directed By Michael Bay

When Omar Minaya is relieved of his duties on the same day The Michael Bayifier went viral, you have to take gun-toting, miles of city block damaging explosion action.
