Now that I checked Keith's MLB blog I am convinced he is off because of his father. If you read this blog, Keith, your father is in my prayers.

I hate to agree, but all indications seem to be that Keith is taking off for his father. All my best wishes to the Olbermann family.

I certainly hope Keith's Dad is okay, but I'm really missing him on Countdown. The past few months it seems like it's almost a daily crapshoot whether or not Keith will appear.

The gossip site Gawker is saying that Keith plans to be back tonight.

(The rest of the article is pure malicious slime, so I'm not posting a link. Readers may search it out on their own responsibility.)

That's not a picture of Keith! The ear, nose and eyebrow - all wrong.

Woah, Gawker are awful, just callous.
Those are the headlines...god I wish they weren't.

Hello to all. I've been reading the forum for about a year and finally decided to register.

Yep, Gawker. Snark, snark, snark. I don't even think it's K.O. in the picture. But, I've never seen a profile picture of him, so, who knows? But, it is baseball playoff season (or close to it). It is his escape, from what I understand.

I certainly hope his father is going to be all right. My dad was in the hospital recently and I know how scary it feels.

Are you talking about this photo at the ball park? I thought it looked like him.

And I don't think there's a thing wrong with his being there! I assume he and his sister are taking turns being with their dad.

My spidy-senses say "nope!' I'll try find a pic of Keith from that kind of angle....ah, google:

Screen shot 2009-09-30 at 21.59.29.png

Look at the ear lobe - dangly vs joiny...(unless Keith is asymmetrical, like Stephen Colbert!)

I agree that it obviously wouldn't be somehow "wrong" for Keith to go to the game - I just don't think that's him!

But my eye-sight is shocking...

I really hope his father is doing OK. My granddad has just recovered from a heart attack, its such a frightening thing to face.

How stupid of gawker to make comments about whether Keith was at a ballgame or not. If that is him, could that be his nephew with him? Maybe he is giving his sister a chance to sit with their dad, and his nephew a break from mom's worries. And if it isn't him, all the more stupid of them.

Okay, I'm convinced after seeing that side-by-side comparison. In fact I myself had noticed when correcting screen caps how Keith's lobe is joined, and that should have been a dead giveaway!

Nice catch, Doomed. I hope the "G-men" at Gawker get their asses kicked for posting that!

Although, well done to the "man who kind of looks like Keith'. I hope he does good impressions. At least he's a Yankees fan!

I'm cancelling my opticians appointment...

Upon first sight I thought it was Keith. For instance, the nose is shaped the same. But on further reflection, I say close, but no cigar. Receding double chin, and the ear lobes are wrong. YMMV
