• Does Kim Jones Get To Go To The Bachelor Party?

    Posted by on July 14th, 2010 · Comments (33)

    Michael Kay puts a ring on it for Jodi Applegate.

    I wonder if anyone has warned Jodi that she’s going to be using a thesaurus a heckuva lot more often than a Kama Sutra book once she ties the knot with Kay?

      Are you implying that Mike has ED?

      No, just diarrhea of the mouth.

      I’m impressed. I remember when she first showed up a while ago. Nice deep blue eyes. Nice score, MK.

      She must like his huge…

      …head?
      …unstoppable banter?
      …bank account?

      Help me out here, gang.

      Yes, I’m jealous. Happy, now?

      I’d go with bank account. He’s been single for how long with no kids, while working 1000 jobs?

      FWIW, back in 1997, I worked with a girl who sister dated Kay. She said he was a really nice guy. Of course, that was 13 years ago…before YES, his ESPN Radio gig, etc. And, I think he was just doing the games on radio back then too.

      Pretty girl. I’d say Kay has outrun his coverage on this one.

      Kay must live in my folks’ neighborhood because I’ve run into him about a dozen times or so at the movies, at the diner, at the deli, etc. Each and every time he’s always unfailingly polite and says hi when approached.

      I don’t think much of his ability to call games for YES but I do think he’s a good radio drive-time host and I agree that he’s a very nice guy in person.

      Same here when I met him at a movie theater in Tampa. Shook his hand and said nice job. He seemed grateful.

      Kay doesn’t seem like the type to let fame get to his head. I chatted with him a few times at the Fan Festivals, and he came across as a guy who was living the dream, and very thankful. He used to sign autographs after the games.

      Guy turned me on to the Pizza and Brew restaurant, so he can’t be all that bad :D

      I’ve met Michael Kay twice. Really friendly guy – couldn’t be nicer.

      Congrats on his engagement to Jodi Applegate. Wonder what they’ll serve at the wedding. I guess condiments, seafood, soup, and bananas are out (he won’t eat any of them!)

      I know he hates seafood and bananas but I didn’t realize he doesn’t like condiments. How weird!

      He eats his burgers/hot dogs plain? Nothing on his sandwiches? I can’t even imagine.

      So, it sounds like this is the deal with Michael Kay: Lots of Yankees fans criticize him and make fun of him, but, in the end, those who have met him say that he’s a really nice guy.
      Gee, I can not imagine what that’s like? ;-)

      I can only speak for myself but I think he’s a lousy play-by-play guy. His style is irritating (always asking dopey questions of his ex-jock color commentary partners) and I just don’t think it’s his strong suit. I’ve said many times that his radio show on ESPN Radio in NY is the best thing going on the air in that timeslot and I listen to him every single day on my commute home.

      The fact that people think he’s a nice guy doesn’t make us hypocritical for criticizing his performance in his primary job.

      No, not at all. I’m saying, there are many readers and other bloggers who constantly rip me, gripe about me, make fun of me, etc. – and don’t know me/have never met me. Just like Yankees fans do with Kay.

      But, those who have met Kay say that he’s a nice guy, down to earth, as a person, and someone who would be nice to hang with. And, I believe that some who read this blog, or write other blogs, who have met me in person think I’m an OK guy and a good Yankees fan – at least I think they do…based on what they’ve told me after meeting me.

      @ Raf:
      My dad’s best friend lived nearby in Purchase. During his last few years before passing away, my dad would take his friend out to lunch there (and the delicatessen next door) 2x times a week. Because of that, my dad turned me onto that place and I’ve been going ever since.

      As far as pizza places go, I’ve never had a bad meal there in the 10+ years I’ve been going there. Interestingly enough, the Scarsdale location on Central Park Ave. isn’t as good as the one in Rye Ridge.

      @ Steve Lombardi: @ MJ Recanati:

      Steve, even though I haven’t yet met you personally, I would say that you are a nice guy, even if we will probably never, ever agree about A-Rod!

      MJ, Michael Kay also won’t eat “jelly, any cheese not on a pizza, veal, coffee.” So many food rules!

      http://www.cantstopthebleeding.com/the-sophisticated-pallet-of-michael-kay

      One thing I do like about Michael Kay is his willingness to admit he was wrong. Last year, he slammed Nick Swisher for not acting in “the Yankee way.” He also hated the pies. Kay eventually changed his mind on both, and said so repeatedly on the air. Good for him.

      That’s seriously amazing (and very strange). Never tasted soup? What the hell did he eat when he was a kid growing up in the Bronx when he had a cold? No chicken soup? What the hell kind of New Yorker is he?!!!!

      I’m totally fascinated by Michael Kay’s strange food hang-ups.

      If he never had any of these foods, how was Kay so heavy for years? Maybe he subscribed to the old Bill Cosby bit, “Chocolate Cake for Breakfast”?

      I would wager poor eating habits and lack of exercise.

      He has a house in Greenburgh. I’ve seen him out in stores and restaurants in that area often.

      Does he? Makes sense, as he was always talking up the area, back in the days of the Kay-Sterling radio broadcast duo.
