From the Archives: Keith Olbermann’s……Spring Training Interview

So back in Spring Training we received an interesting visitor in the press box at McKechnie Field.  I’m probably revealing too much about my political leanings here, but I was pretty geeked when I was told Keith Olbermann was in town.  The former SportsCenter and MSNBC anchor is an avid baseball fan and maintains his own MLBlog just like this one…but, you know, better and more well-informed.   Inevitably I figured I’d approach Keith and see if we might be able to get him to interview for us on M’sTV and  We also gave him a Marauders hat.  I believe he was a size eight.  Anyway we got the interview…and then we didn’t.  We weren’t able to post it until June (keeping in mind this was something like March 15th).  So the video sat on my desktop…and sat…and sat…and now it’s September 15th and Keith will give you his sleeper fantasy baseball pics with two weeks left in the MLB season.  The interview is below.  In retrospect, Brandon Gomes did go on to have a decent season.  That will make sense after you watch.

Till next time,
