remember lookin' at you. i'm tryin' to figure out your loyalty. it's a little divided. are you a mets fan? a yankees? red sox? jimmy, which one is it? [ cheers ] >> jimmy: i'm a ranger fan, i'm a seattle fan, and a yankee fan. i'm a yankee fan but i'm rooting for the mets now because -- 'cause you're here. [ laughter ] half the city is super excited about the mets. they're doing a great job. you had a -- you had a great season last season thanks to me, but you also hit a big milestone when you turned 40 years old. and yes, happy birthday. >> depressing. >> jimmy: no it's not, it's a a great thing. i was gonna ask you, is there anything a 40-year-old alex rodriguez would say to a a 20-year-old a-rod? >> oh, boy. do you have enough time? >> jimmy: what would you -- >> i would probably just keep it simple.
enjoy yourself and remember to have fun, and, let's see, if you ever do a photo shoot, don't kiss any mirrors. >> jimmy: don't kiss any mirrors? >> do not kiss any mirrors. >> jimmy: i don't remember the photo you're talking about when you were kissing a mirror. i don't remember that photo at all. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. >> they just talked you into doing it and you did it and you go, oh, man. why did i do that? i know it's gonna be everywhere. well, at least we didn't make fun of it on our show when we did "late night." that was the one thing we made sure -- difference between my arm and your arm. [ laughter ] >> we were young, jimmy. >> jimmy: we were young, absolutely. i gotta say, you're fantastic on fox on the world series. i love you. hands down, i know you don't need me to say it, but you're great at this job. did you know that you can do this? >> no, no idea. and thank you. it is hard to do. >> jimmy: yeah.
>> it's really difficult to get all your thoughts condensed and say it in 15 or 20 seconds and try to, you know, talk to your fan base about it. i don't know how you do this every night. >> jimmy: oh, no, no, no. please. [ cheers and applause ] i gotta say, you're up there, joe buck, i mean, legends, guys who have done it for years and years and you don't miss a a step. i go, i don't know, this is gonna be risky. why would a-rod do this? i go, you know, then i can see you kind of looking at me through the camera. you know? [ laughter ] as you're commentating, you're also giving me dirty looks. >> but you know what, i figured the same thing, it's just like baseball, it's just like the yankees. you need a great team. we have frank, we have raul, we have our quarterback, kevin, who's incredible. >> jimmy: yeah. >> he's like magic johnson. he just gives us no-look passes. makes us look pretty good. >> jimmy: fantastic. >> kevin's the key. >> jimmy: really. did you train, did you go to utthings, did you comment from home with the volume down and watch games and go -- you know about baseball, which is refreshing to watch, whatever you say, i go, "oh,
[ light laughter ] >> i love to watch baseball, and if i didn't take the job, i would be home watching all the playoffs game, watching the world series. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and probably talkin' back to the tv. >> jimmy: yeah. the mets are down now. the mets are down. and they're comin' back home to citi field. what can they do to turn this around? because they're down two. >> it's not as bad as everyone thinks. >> jimmy: no. >> i believe in the mets. the mets still have a really good opportunity. [ cheers and applause ] and i will tell you one thing. look, the greatest thing about this world series is the best two teams are playing. i think it's gonna be a very long series, but let me tell you, we went into kansas city and they beat us two out of three. and we said, "wow, these guys are really, really tough," 'cause they are. but then we came back to new york, just like the mets are, and we played three games and we swept them. one, two, three. so they're beatable. they're beatable. >> jimmy: they are beatable. >> the mets just have to play really good baseball. they have to play good defense. and you never know. >> jimmy: there ya go. you never know. [ applause ]
good d, good d. you wanted to do one more thing before you left. and i think this is kind of a a fun thing. you want to just say what it is? >> yeah. >> jimmy: you're working, right? >> i am working tomorrow night, but i want to see who is the biggest yankee fan -- i'm sorry, i always say yankee. sorry, it's in my dna. who's the biggest met fan out there? >> jimmy: met fan? >> mets, mets. >> jimmy: i think it's clear it's that guy with the hunting -- there he is. only guy wearing a mets hat. yeah. >> jimmy, tomorrow i'm working for fox, but you, my friend, i'm gonna leave you two tickets at will call. [ cheers and applause ] enjoy game three of the world series. >> jimmy: he's going, i can't believe -- i can't believe i'm an alex rodriguez fan. now you're a mets fan and an alex rodriguez fan. there you go. our thanks to alex rodriguez! [ cheers and applause ] we've got a performance from steve martin and edie brickell after the break.
