A Dog Named Jose and a Cockatiel Named Gil
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld, a huge Mets fan, is creating quite a buzz these days with his decision to name his dog after shortstop Jose Reyes.
“You want to know why the dog is named Jose? … The dog is named Jose because I feel like we may lose Jose Reyes, and we’re trying to keep a Jose. Because I’m a Met fan. It’s actually my wife’s idea, which is why I love my wife — she comes up with ideas like this. That’s a marriage right there, a wife that says, ‘Let’s name a dog after the Mets’ outgoing shortstop.’ That keeps the love alive.” – Via ESPN
Have you ever named a pet after a Mets player?
I never did, but my uncle uncle once had a cockatiel named Gil after the former Mets manager, and oddly enough his favorite snack was carrots.
(BTW, that’s not my uncle’s cockatiel. Gil died over 10 years ago, but I scoured the internet to find one that looked just like him down to the bright orange cheeks.)
