The Cultural Importance of Keith Hernandez

Some younger fans might think of Keith Hernandez as nothing more than the guy who sawed logs in the Mets’ broadcast booth. But back in the day, Hernandez was — and affected eloquence has no place here — a genuine bad-ass. Not only does he have a strong HoF case, but he was also something of a cultural touchstone.

On that point, Rob Perri’s short film “I’m Keith Hernandez” must be seen to be fathomed. It’s not particularly new, but it is particularly awesome. And is it hard to believe or decidedly easy to believe that, among other things, nudity makes this video not safe for work unless your place of work is a permissive den of iniquity?
