THE OTHER JERRY

How did you feel about Jerry Seinfeld in the booth with Gary and Keith? The best part about Seinfeld in the booth is he’s an honest to goodness Mets fan. He wasn’t there to plug a movie (looking at you Kevin James) or a TV show, he was there as a Mets fan.

I thought his line to Keith when Jose Reyes hit his home run was classic:

  “Yes! Jose Reyes cruising around third. Keith Hernandez is not liking this. Always whining about the Reyes homers. I love ‘em! Always love a homer no matter who hits it … Boom! You have got to love this.”

Seinfeld may have gone a bit overboard gushing over Gary Cohen, to the point where it seemed Cohen was getting a bit embarrassed but he was correct when he said that Gary, Keith and Ron (and don’t forget the Great Kevin Burkhardt as well) form the best announcing team in sports.

Too me the line of the night is when he talked about Lady GaGa and how they cleaned up his suite after she soiled it with her presences:

 “Everything’s fine. We brought the bedbug dog in. What’s his name? Rusty, the beagle? Now everything’s clean.”

That made me laugh out loud.

Too bad they didn’t  take calls in the booth as I’m sure Uncle Leo would have dialed

    Don’t look now, but the Mets are in 1st. A Pods loss and Mets win tonight mean our beloved Amazin’s have the best record in the NL.

  2. I thought Jerry was awesome. I loved when he rebuked Burkhardt for using his (Jerry’s) material. It was a funny moment.

    Just got home from the game (nice how in a Saturday plan they make you buy some weeknights). Too bad the rally fell short. But I came home to a UPS delivery of some fine “This Call to the Bullpen” merchandise. It’s good stuff, folks.

    Rich, thanks for shopping at the This Call To The Bullpen shop I appreciate it. I was at Coney Island last night to see the Cyclones. This was the third Cyclones game I’ve atteneded and I’ll tell you guys, now that Bobby V is going to South Beach, short of winning the NL Penannt the Mets need to let Manuel go and hire Wally Backman, WallyBall is alive and well in Brooklyn.

  4. Hiring Backman would be just fine with me.

  5. Fine by me, too!
