Keith Hernandez had himself one of those “I probably should have kept that to myself” moments on Tuesday night, but we’re sure glad he didn’t. During the broadcast of the New York Mets-Arizona Diamondbacks game, a woman was shown eating one of the infamous $25 hot dogs that are being offered at Chase Field this season. Hernandez was in awe.
However, Pretty Boy wasn’t amazed by the gigantic hot dog. What he was staring at was certainly gigantic, but I think there were two of them.
“My goodness,” Hernandez said.
“How much meat is in a $25 hot dog,” Hernandez’s partner Gary Cohen asked. “Probably a few pounds, right?”
Hernandez wasn’t talking about the meat in the hot dog.
“I wasn’t talking about the hot dog,” he said.
The two then went on to talk about how many calories must be in the hot dog and some other obnoxious food items that are being offered at ballparks this year. Hernandez talked about how he used to treat himself to a banana split every once in a while when he ran a lot. He then gave his final thoughts on the woman in red.
“She looks fit,” Hernandez said. “She must be a runner.”
Yeah, Keith — that must be it. You don’t know the first thing about first base.
