NO ONE'S LOOKING AT YOU, MIKE! Merlyweds Michael Kay and his much, MUCH better half, Channel 11 news anchor Jodi Applegate, at their gala wedding last night at The Plaza.  'I DO': Rudy Giuliani makes the happy couple husband and wife.

The long anticipated Michael Kay wedding. Let the jokes roll in.

From the NY Post:

Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay and TV news anchor Jodi Applegate tied the knot at The Plaza last night in a lavish ceremony packed with pinstripe powerhouses and skippered by former Mayor and Bronx Bombers die-hard Rudy Giuliani.

Several former Yankee greats such as Paul O’Neill, Tino Martinez and Darryl Strawberry, were among the 350 guests who turned out to watch the lovebirds exchange vows at the storied hotel shortly after twilight.

“It’s a great day for Michael Kay,” Strawberry told The Post. “He waited this long for the right one. It’s amazing.”

Baseball bigs, including Yanks manager Joe Girardi and team co-owner Hal Steinbrenner rubbed elbows with TV personalities such as NBC anchor Brian Williams and Applegate’s WPIX/Channel 11 colleagues Kaity Tong and weatherman Mr. G.

And actor Danny Aiello, Kay’s uncle, was on hand to fete the happy couple as were former Yanks and Kay’s YES-network colleagues Al Leiter, David Cone and John Flaherty.

The president of Fordham University, Kay’s alma mater, gave the benediction before a grinning Giuliani took the helm.

Applegate donned a white empire lace dress designed by Suzanne Neville from the Wedding Atelier bridal boutique. She changed her dress three more times throughout the night, a guest said.

The auburn-haired stunner also sported sparkly, 14-carat diamond earrings on loan from London Jewelry, and custom silk gloves, silk velvet cuffs and a white fox fur stole. (more…)

Andy Pettitte is still undecided. Even though the Yankees have already claimed that they’ve “moved on”, it still puts the team in a tense situation. You know the organization still has Andy in their mind, and they could really use him in the starting rotation this season. As it stands now, Sergio Mitre and Ivan Nova would have the back end of the rotation. It’s time ffor Andy to come to a decision. This is what Pettitte had to say to a reporter just last week:

“I’m just chilling out, hanging,” Pettitte told the newspaper. “I’m relaxing. If I had something, y’all would know. If I knew exactly what I was doing, y’all would know.”

“I don’t want to be a story,” Pettitte said. “I really don’t want [the Yankees] to worry about me. I just want them to go, just go on.”

Jodi Applegate-Michael Kay

Jodi Applegate is already wondering what she got herself into when she got engaged to Yankees play-by-play announcer, Michael Kay. “Chicken parm is probably the most exotic thing he’ll eat — and he’ll eat mozzarella cheese because it’s in chicken parm.”

From the NY Daily News:

Listeners of Michael Kay’s ESPN afternoon-drive radio show may not know it, but the beautiful girlfriend he sometimes talks about is News 12 Long Island anchor Jodi Applegate. The couple have been dating for a little over a year now, and Applegate tells Gatecrasher that they met after Kay, the TV voice of the Yankees on the Yes Network, spied her from afar at the 2009 Emmy Awards.

The next day, he waxed romantic about the former “Good Day New York” anchor at length on his ESPN show, telling the audience that Applegate was his idea of the “perfect woman” – “so perfect” that he couldn’t bring himself to talk to her.

When Applegate heard about Kay’s on-air mash-o-logue, she says her response was, “Michael who?” But she ended up calling Kay’s producer and, without letting the sportscaster in on the goof, phoned in to his show the next day as “Jodi from Long Island.” Their call went on for 12 minutes, and when Kay realized he was talking to his idea of the perfect woman, “he began asking me out on the air,” Applegate says.

The News 12 anchor turned him down because she was seeing someone at the time, but when she found herself unattached a few months later, she e-mailed Kay. After a first date at Pomodoro restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen, “we’ve been together ever since,” she says. They even attended this year’s Emmys together.

Way to go Michael! I’m sure Paul O’Neill will continue to bug him about getting married….
