O'Reilly Spun Out of Mets Clubhouse

The New York Mets clubhouse is clearly not a spin free zone.

The New York Daily News reports that talk radio and TV commentator Bill O’Reilly found this out when he and his party were escorted out of the Mets clubhouse prior to the start of Mets-Yankees game at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night. A stadium security guard noticed that Bill and his entourage didn’t have the proper credentials and led them out out the door.

"You don’t need to escort us out," O’Reilly complained. "We’re leaving."

Two days earlier, MSNBC’s liberal commentator, Keith Olbermann, was also hanging out in the Mets clubhouse without credentials, but was not asked to leave. Is it possible that the Mets were making some kind of political statement?

Not likely. Remember, Olbermann was an ESPN sportscaster for five years in the 1990’s. He will also be returning to TV sports this fall when he joins Cris Collinsworth as co-host of the pregame show for NBC's Sunday night NFL telecasts.
