The legend turned Twitter legend within the mere matter of weeks, former New York Mets first baseman Keith Hernandez, shows us how gets the paper with his cat, Hadji.

Every so often a human being is created unlike any other. Keith Hernandez is one such human being.

The former New York Mets first baseman who helped the 1986 version to the organization’s second World Series not only captured the hearts of fans everywhere during his playing days, but remained relevant and hilarious by way of color-commentating over the last two-plus decades.


It’s impossible to describe the man. Only those who watch that great SNY broadcast with Mex, Gary Cohen and Ron Darling night in and out can actually only begin to understand what we’re dealing with here.

Further evidence has been brought to the table over the last month-plus as Hernandez finally melted down and created his own Twitter account.

Forget evidence, though. For fans and sports media people alike, the account is baseball gold and comedy heaven. One of his latest entries is above as Mex and suddenly the world’s most famous cat, Hadji, went outside to get the morning paper (video above).

I mean, what do you say to that? The average person will watch it and think the rest of us are nutty. They’ll think the diehards who worship Hernandez and the Mets are strange creatures who’ll simply never lead normal lives.

Anyway, just prior to fetching the paper, he decided to let his 50-plus thousand followers in on how he feeds Hadji:

Hernandez is currently off as Cohen and Darling do their thing in Atlanta. In Game 1 against the Braves on Thursday night, Matt Harvey was smoked in a 12-4 loss. Of course, Hernandez tweeted about the disheartening result.

After saying goodnight, he promptly tweeted five more times. That’s all.

The man probably needs an intervention of sorts to balance his life out, but let’s not tell him this. Cat videos and random Keith Hernandez thoughts sooth the soul of all of us weirdos out there.
