New York Mets first base coach Ruben Amaro Jr., himself a former general manager and graduate of Penn Charter, made a cameo on The Goldbergs last night.
Ol’ Rube played his father, the Amaro Sr., attending a “William Penn Academy” PTA meeting in a performance that was worthy of… well, perhaps a former GM grasping at straws to stay in the game.
Breathtaking. We like him. We really like him.
We don’t, Ms. Field, but I appreciate the efforts of The Goldbergs creators to do everything they can to crowbar Philly sports references into every show. Pandering? Maybe. Funny? A little bit.
Anyway, I imagine this is how most job interviews have gone for Ruben lately.
