Keryx Gooble

We finish with a closed captioning screw up that is somewhat understandable. Not many people knew how to properly announce Tarik Skubal’s name when he was first drafted, and if we asked non-fans to spell it we’d get some interesting results. Thus, Terek School, Terek Screwball, and Keryx Gooble. Research tells us that Terek School is a group of salmon racing for the Caspian, and Terek Screwball is a prop comedian working mostly in Branson, MO.

But Keryx Gooble is actually an interesting story. He’s the 19-year-old half brother of Google, and though he comes from a family of search engines, he’s still searching for himself. He’s done what you might expect from an overshadowed younger sibling with unlimited funds: trips to Burning Man, weekends in Ibiza, ayahuasca-fueled tortoise wrestling in the Galapagos. There was the failed electronic surfboard startup, the “fact-finding” mission to Thailand, and the bizarre, livestock-themed Twitter trolling of Dr. Temple Grandin.

These days he’s really into Ayn Rand. He nicknamed his Atherton home “The Fountainhead” and he recently bough a John Gant jersey, stating that it was “close enough.” His family looks forward to him growing out of this phase.
