Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling, Lee Mazzilli rally today!
All of my Mets-branded clothing is in the laundry, darn it, otherwise I would definitely be there waving my blue and orange pompoms at noon today when Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling, Lee Mazzilli and Kevin Burkhardt appear at an event outside SNY's studios at 51st and Sixth to pump you up for the Phils-Mets series.
The boys will take questions and sign autographs.
I only have asked directly for two autographs during my 26-year professional career: Bonnie Bernstein for my daughter, because the two attended the same gymnastics school, and Ron Jaworski for my brother-in-law, because he grew up rooting for the wrong NFC East team.
That's it. It's unprofessional to be doing that sort of thing.
As a kid I got a Ron Johnson autograph when the Giants running back appeared at the opening of some sort of health club. But I digress.
