MASN reporter Dan Kolko spoke Jayson Werth to after this impressive ninth-inning catch saved a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets. And Werth started this interview just like any other athlete would. The Mean Girls reference seemingly came out of nowhere, which made it even more hilarious.
“It was one of those games,” Werth began. “We got the W, that’s the most important thing. And we’re back here tomorrow to play again. And good for you, Dan Kolko! You go, Dan Kolko!”

Perhaps Jayson Werth made this Mean Girls reference to honor last month’s 10th anniversary of the movie’s theater debut. As part of this celebration, Dazed actually caught up with the actor who played Glen Coco. Turns out, David Reale’s place in film history happened purely by accident. He originally auditioned for(and failed to land) a different role in the cult classic. But he ended up as Glen Coco when he wandered onto the set.
“What happened was, they ended up filming a lot of the school stuff right across the park from my apartment in Toronto,” Reale wrote. “One day I sort of wandered onto set to see if I could watch some scenes being shot and maybe get some free food (I was 19-year-old actor with no money so eating was daily mission). I sort of hung around with the background performers and ended up getting lunch because everybody just assumed I was actually hired to be there. At one point the director recognized me from my audition and, as a consolation prize, said something like, ‘Hey, I’m going to put you right in the front on this next scene and you’ll have a name and everything.’”
