A pleasant good Tuesday, Mets fans! This past week wasn’t a very good one for the Mets but don’t worry, the SNY crew is here to cheer you up. We’ve got plenty of jokes at the expense of Steve Gelbs, some Keith fashion tips, and even a famous weatherman in the house! Let’s get started.
June 9, 2016
In the bottom of the first inning, Gary was talking about the hot weather in Milwaukee and Keith brought up how he forgot his sweater in New York. Gary then mentioned his favorite reason for having Keith in the booth.
Gary: I look to you for fashion tips. What am I gonna do, look to Gelbs?
Keith offered Gary his own compliment.
Keith: I love the ties. You’ve come a long way in the tie department.

It’s time for the return of Fashion Tips with Keith!
Oh no, Keith had a fashion malfunction with the collar of his shirt!
Keith: I left my collar stays in New York on my dresser, so I had to go find them. The reason collar stays, I mean everyone knows this, when it’s hot and muggy your collar will loop up like this...
Work it, Keith!
Keith: ...we can’t have that when we do our open, folks.
Gary: Now do you prefer the plastic or the metal collar stays?
Keith: Oh, you can’t cheat that. Get the metals. Come on! Spend a little.
Listen to Keith. Spring for the metal collar stays, you rockhead.
Keith and Gary talked about a kid’s cheesehead in the stands. Nothing really exciting happened in the conversation so just enjoy this picture.

It’s time for Nitpicking with TWISNY! Before we start, let’s introduce the key players in this Nitpick. This is Scooter Gennett. He is a grown ass man named Scooter who plays 2nd base for the Brewers.
And this is Keon Broxton, who has a perfectly adult name and plays the outfield for the Brewers.
It would be pretty hard to mix these two human beings up, right? Well Scooter doubled down the first base line to put runners at 2nd and 3rd and then Broxton singled up the middle to knock in a run and move Scooter to 3rd.
SNY proceeded to show this replay of that run-scoring hit.
Keith: Ball’s hit pretty hard. There’s the double...there’s the base hit right there...
Gary: Wait a second. WAAAAIT A SECOND!
Keith: That’s Gennett. That confused me!
Gary: That’s a mashup! I’ve never seen that happen before. You’ve got one guy hitting it and a different hit coming off the bat!
Some solid work in the truck of fooling Gary and Keith! This has been Nitpicking with TWISNY.

Look who the SNY cameras spotted behind home plate!
That’s right, it’s Today Show weatherman Al Roker and his family. Unfortunately, Gary messed up Al’s signature line “Here's what's happening in your neck of the woods”, instead going with a more generic “let’s check the weather in your neighborhood”.
Al doesn’t look nearly as happy as usual, probably because of the Mets’ poor play.
While the camera focused on Al, topical Keith dropped a “Mr. President! Mr. President!”, which is of course in reference to this moment from President Obama’s inauguration in 2013.
A guy made a great effort trying to catch a foul ball during the 3rd inning. As the man got booed, good guys Gary and Keith made sure that his effort was rewarded.
Keith: He got booed! That was a tough play.
Gary: It was a tough play.
Gary and Keith reviewed the replay just to make sure.
Keith: Naw, it’s out of his reach. Come on!
Gary: Right off the end of the leather. He’s so disconsolate.
Then out of nowhere, Keith took a shot at the man’s eating habits.
Keith: See, if he had mixed in a few more salads, that boiler...he’d have a little more reach.
Ouch, don’t kick the man while he’s down, Keith!
With 1 out in the bottom of the 5th inning, Keith felt it was a great time to take a look at the Coors Light Pirates defense.
Gary: Keith! It’s the 5th inning! Why are you just now getting to the defense?
Keith: Hey, it’s not my fault. <laughter> I’ll accept wearing the jockey tie a day late. But not this, I do not take responsibility.
Wait, jockey tie? What was Keith talking about?
Gary: Keith brought a jockey tie the day of the Belmont Stakes. When we get there Saturday, he goes “I’m gonna wear that tie tomorrow for the Belmont Stakes” and I said “Keith, the race is today”. <laughter>
Keith: So I wore it Sunday, Ron. It’s typical of me. Short-term memory loss. It’s a concern. It’s a concern at my age! <laughter>
Gary: We’ll try and take care of you.
Time for a report with Steve Gelbs about Curtis Granderson and the short amount of foul territory in right field, which is brought to you by Subway.
This year at TWISNY, we’ve documented much of the ribbing Steve has taken from Gary, Keith, and Ron. They had some more for Steve when his report ended.
Gary: Glad you could find us, Steve.
Keith: Steve, when you talk to us, please look us in the eye.
Steve: Was I not looking at you guys? <laughter> I’m just like Plawecki, I lost it in the lights.
All in good fun, that is until Kevin Plawecki gets the recording of this broadcast.

Leading into the top of the 7th, Gary read a Metsblog promo which included a mention of Steve Gelbs’ new podcast. He wasn’t going to let Steve live down that moment from the day before.
Gary: On Metslog, the new podcast “Inside the Park” with Steve Gelbs! And he’ll even look into the camera. <laughter>
That’s all for this edition of TWISNY! Thanks again go out to Chris McShane for always keeping an eye out for us.
