It was on this night that Ichiro had been traded to the Yankees. Erik showed me a tweet from Olbermann that he thought was funny. I nonchalantly responded something to the effect of "That's funny and by the way, Olbermann is sitting right over there."
Erik did a brief double take. He couldn't believe it. He held up his phone to compare the profile photo with the real man.
Within seconds of hitting send, Olbermann immediately looked up from his phone to see who had tweeted at him. He kept looking suspiciously at the guy sitting across from him. But he was wrong.
Three times, he looked around the train looking for the culprit. Erik and I kept laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation. Marc had no idea what was going on, "Come on guys! Tell me! What's so funny? Guys!!"
Finally Keith noticed us and we acknowledged that it was us. Keith gave Erik a salute and we all went back to our phones like nothing had happened.
If there was any doubt, Keith was at the game, his feed says it all.
A few days later, I was reading this book to Otis and Sam and I found Olbermann in the book - right down to the finger pointing and the the usage of the indignant "Sir!"
