If you're in Mr. Berry's geometry class at Jericho High School on Long Island, you were probably shocked when an unannounced visitor dropped into a recent class on Zoom.
"Figured today we'd switch things up," Gregory Berry said while introducing the mystery guest. "Called in some reinforcements and I'm gonna have someone else introduce the lesson. So Pete, take it away."
Then in came Pete Alonso, whose appearance was the result of a charitable donation Berry made.
"What's up, y'all, it's Pete Alonso here from the New York Mets," the first baseman said. "I know you guys are in Mr. Berry's class and I know he's teaching geometry. I know he wants me to say something about 'make sure to learn your cyclic quadrilaterals,' but I don't even know what the hell a cyclic quadrilateral is. I don't even know how to say it right."
After joking about not knowing how to pronounce "cyclical quadrilateral" and telling the kids to stay in school, Pete gave a shoutout to the school's baseball team.
"I'm sorry about y'all's season, boys," Alonso said. "Quite frankly, this virus sucks. But I can't wait for you guys to get back to playing again. We're all gonna power through this together."
The students, of course, were thrilled.
"Pete Alonso showed up on my geometry class," one student told News 12. "It made my quarantine."
