“Who’s On First” is one of the classic American comedy sketches. Performed by Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, “Who’s on First” is a short skit in which Costello approaches Abbott about Abbott’s baseball team. Abbott proceeds to talk to Costello about the team, not informing Costello that the names of the players on the team are; Who, What, I Don’t Know, Because, Why, Tomorrow, Today and I Don’t Care (give a darn or give a damn, depending on where you hear the sketch). Costello’s confusion and increased frustration as the sketch goes on is classic and still hilarious to this day. It is so much a part of baseball lore that the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown runs it throughout the day in the museum. What makes “Who’s on First” funny is the anonymity of the players names and the confusion that results. Unfortunately, Mets fans can directly associate with this concept of anonymity, and those results haven’t been funny over these past two seasons. The Mets have had identical 74 and 88 records
