Apparently, some of the following info about Michael Kay is common knowledge among Yankee fans -- especially frequent listeners of his radio show.
However, Mark Feinsand found this to be very strange and so do I. I'm sure many of you guys will as well.
While eating in the Mariners press dining room the other night, I found myself in a conversation with Michael Kay, who was sitting at the table without any dinner in front of him.
As I enjoyed a bowl of clam chowder, Michael mentioned that he had never had soup in his entire life (he thinks the slurping sound associated with it is grotesque). I found this amazing. He then told me he had never had any fish or seafood of any type, either.
As the conversation went on, he informed me of several other things he has NEVER tasted in his life: bananas, condiments of any type (though he lost a bet on his radio show and had to eat a packet of ketchup, which made him sick), jelly, any cheese not on a pizza, veal, coffee ... it went on to include more things, but I can't think of them at the moment.
I don't know why this struck me as being so strange, but it did, so I thought I would share it with you. Just a little insight for you about the television voice of the Yankees.
Strange. Very strange.
