An inverted hat worn at Thursday’s Mets-Cardinals game didn’t hide Zach Wilson, but the Jets quarterback’s jersey messed up Keith Hernandez.
SNY reporter Steve Gelbs had a hilarious comment about Wilson as the former first-round pick sat behind home plate, rocking a custom Mets jersey with his name on the back.
“Will he talk to you, Steve?” Hernandez asked during the third inning as an SNY camera was trained on Wilson.
“Yeah guys, I think I’ll leave him alone for a little bit today,” Gelbs said, leaning back in his seat at Citi Field.
Yellow’s response sparked laughter from the broadcasters.
“Ahh, he likes the ‘Mook,'” Hernandez said of the quarterback’s custom jersey, referring to Mets legend Mookie Wilson.
“Keith, it’s either that or it’s his own name,” Gary Cohen replied.
“Well, I didn’t see the number,” Hernandez said.
Wilson has been all over the New York sports scene lately. He celebrated Sunday’s Rangers win in Game 7 against the Penguins at the Garden.
