SNY showed a clip from 1982 of the Mets' state-of-the-art scoreboard control room. Here are some fun shots from the montage:

SNY employees are having a blast with their slow-mo camera gadget. And so are we. Here is a good soldier taking one for the team:

Our biggest ongoing gripe with the SNY broadcast is cutting away from the game at inappropriate times. An example of this was Kevin's in-game interview with Rob Johnson in the Mets dugout:

There are hours of pregame and postgame programming to fill with player interviews. During a game is not the time. We just want to watch baseball with minimal interruption. Plus, Kevin is facing away from the field and is in danger of being struck by a batted ball. It's not safe. For more on this, check out our post from April 2011.

Just because.

Pop quiz: if you know you will be on-air with Kevin Burkhardt, do you:

a) Go with the disinterested "what smells?" look
b) Play the above-it-all tough guy role, checking your phone in between sips of a Heineken Light
c) Invite a TWISNY appearance by going all-out goofus
