I’m SOOO Interesting!

Running on the treadmill, sound muted on the television tuned to the YES Network, I spy an ad for the show “Centerstage”, hosted by Michael Kaye. Apparently Kaye gets to interview luminaries from around sport, people like Cal Ripken, Chris Evert (both are shown in flashes during the commercial). But who gets the spotlight in the commercial, who sits on “centerstage”, as it were? None other than Michael Kaye! Interviewing himself!! Must be a really interesting conversation, I can only imagine how it goes…

Kaye: “So, Mike, what did you do last night?”
Kaye: “Well, er, Mike, I , uh, we sat around and talked to, uh, Jim, and Ken, and, occasionally you, er, me.”
Kaye: “Who’s more interesting to talk to?”
Kaye: “Well, who’s sitting in the chair across from you right now, smart guy?”

Anyhow, I don’t know if the dialogue on the commercial was self-effacing (it may have been), and Kaye is actually about as tolerable as they get in this town, but it just seemed so appropriate, a Yankee announcer engaging in such silly solipsism.

  • SF’s bashing of YES announcers is getting quite boring. Ok, ok, we get it.

  • Seriously, Jeter dating Alba. I’ve never wanted to be anyone else before, but good lord. I love Jeter, but how much proof do we need that he sold his soul to the devil? If the Yanks win it all this year with the starting pitching they have, I don’t think there can be any doubt.
