Mets Fan Oscar Madison/Jack Klugman Dies

Jack Klugman, who prominently wore a Mets hat while portraying Oscar Madison in “The Odd Couple,” died Monday. He was 90 years old.

“The Odd Couple” is still my all-time favorite television show; when I was a kid they played it constantly on WPIX, at one point airing  it four times a day. I was always happy that sportswriter Oscar was a Mets fan.

Here is Jack Klugman as Oscar Madison, proudly wearing his Mets hat:
