My guest on this week’s Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show is Matt Golden, the actor who portrayed MLB mascot Mr. Met from 1999 to 2011. We go deep on how he got the job, t-shirt guns, and how Mr. Met can convey a range of emotions even though he always has the same expression.
Here’s a quote from the episode where Matt talks about the difference between Mr. Met and other mascots:
Different mascots has different parameters. The [Phillie] Phanatic can be very antagonistic towards other teams… It’s good for a laugh. He is known for smacking the helmets of the other teams. Mr. Met doesn’t do that. Mr. Met is supportive of his own team, but not antagonistic towards other teams.

Welcome to my new weekly column, Ask A Roboticist, where YOU can ask me anything you want to know about the science of robots. Earlier this week I asked for your questions via Twitter, and now I’m back with answers!

i was just going to write “fuck you, time magazine” and be done with it. but this caught me on a day when i’m already infuriated (more than usual, anyway), so i’m going to froth at the mouth and blab about it for a while.
really, time? “lazy, entitled narcissists who still live with their…
Update: Many people were not impressed.
I think Danny blocked me on twitter because I tweeted about the article. I love Danny Brown. I bought his shirt at Fools Gold store and even made some alternate twitter backgrounds for him and the Bruisers. I just hate how people are just cool with rape culture.
I’m bad at talking about what I feel but I think it just comes down to “Rape’s not cool, man.” It’s not cool someone did that to Danny in MN and it’s not cool to sexually taunt women…idk
I guess all I’m sayin’ is I’m just sad Danny blocked me for the wrong reasons.
THERE’S SO MUCH GOD DAMN SPINACH in this shit even Popeye can’t hate. Yeah spinach makes you swoll as fuck, we know that. But did you know just one cup of spinach is over 300% of your daily recommended Vitamin A? Sweet fuck. You worried about acne? Wrinkles? Any other skin shit? Spinach to the mother fucking rescue. That shit keeps your skin looking so fresh and so clean, not to mention helping to prevent skin cancer. Spinach has these plant-based compounds called “flavonoids” that not only repair damaged skin but also fight multiple types of cancer. Everybody knows I ain’t even fucking playing when it comes to dick cancer, I gotta have my shit in tact.
IF YOU SMOKE cigarettes (tumblr crew I’m looking at you), DO NOT take any Vitamin A or beta carotene supplements. Studies have shown that combining those supplements with tobacco drastically increases your risk for lung cancer. But then again, smoking drastically increases your risk for lung cancer. So quit that shit.
You want to make this shit at home and tell Jamba Juice they can go fuck themselves by not paying for their high calorie sugary shit? Recipe below for a Thug Kitchen Original:
Ectoplasm free and Dr. Venkman approved
- 2 handfuls of spinach (about 2 cups)
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1 cup chopped and skinned cucumber
- 4 medium chunks of pineapple
- 1 cup coconut water or tap
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon flax oil (optional)
- 6-8 mint leaves (optional, but I dig that shit)
- yields ~20 ounces
Toss that shit in a blender and zap it. If you prefer it a little sweeter, add some more pineapple to that shit. DRINK UP, CHAMP.
Seriously though, fuck Jamba Juice. Only they could make smoothies as unhealthy as McDonald’s made oatmeal.
