At first you might think that the radio host is mad because his girlfriend was sitting courtside at a New York Knicks game with New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey. That might make some kind of sense.
This radio host is mad at Harvey for sitting courtside at a Knicks game with his girlfriend, SI Swimsuit Model Anne V.
The radio host is Joe Benigno, blue collar sports fan from New Jersey who hosts the midday show on WFAN in New York City. He is upset that Harvey is going to miss next season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.
As if going and watching a game is going to impede his recovery. It isn’t like he is out throwing footballs in a flag football league or in Central Park. He is sitting and watching a game.
I guess Mets fan Benigno thinks Harvey should sit in a dark room for a year while he recovers doing nothing? Harvey retweeted and then deleted a fan who called out Benigno.
