Let's check in with Kevin! Gary Cohen took a few days off and Kevin Burkhardt stepped into the booth to form KKR:

This resulted in some meta moments when Kevin checked in with sideline reporter fill-in Eamon McAnaney. Let's check in with Eamon! Or, as Kevin put it, "Let's go downstairs to Eamon McAnaney":

When Gary returned, Kevin went on vacation and Eamon filled in for him. Got that? Eamon was checked in with frequently, and he emcee'd the "Ask The Booth" segment. As Eric noted last week, here is the worst (best?) "Ask The Booth" question ever, courtesy of Jerry from the Upper West Side:

Gentlemen, do you believe that because David Wright didn't get in to the All-Star Game as a starter, do you believe that he should get in because the fans vote, we voted for him, and I don't understand why he's not in?

"I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over HERE in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our children."

SNY spotted New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the crowd during the Subway Series:

Keith Hernandez had some words for Mr. Mayor. See if you can pick out the quote Keith did not say:

a) "I better hide my 16oz can of Pepsi."
b) "He's not coming up to the booth I hope."
c) "You know, his term is up soon. Maybe I can win the election."

"Guys, I spoke with some players in the clubhouse before the game and they said when they raise their hands like this and slap them together it's called a 'high five.' Who knew? Back upstairs to you guys."

Apparently the Cubs' equipment managers are also second division. Take a look at Travis Wood's helmet:

SNY provided a picture of Lucas Duda in high school at Dodger Stadium when he was already ten feet tall:

Here is Duda all grown up and running to the dugout between innings as a very mysterious Chris Young prepared to bat in the next inning:

Gary Cohen noticed some funny business going on out at what looks like the Santa Monica pier. "Everyone having fun out at the beach", said Gary. See if you can spot what he's talking about:

Sandy Alderson paid a visit to Dodger Stadium and was sitting in a decidedly spartan skybox. Maybe that's why he looks so angry:

According to the screenshot, Sandy was still there in the fifth inning, meaning he stuck around two innings longer than the majority of Dodgers fans. Ha, ha, ha.

That's all for now. A big thanks this week goes to Rob Castellano and Chris McShane. Send any tips or suggestions to ThisWeekInSNY@gmail.com. You will be credited if we run the material.
