Jerry and the Mets; Seinfeld’s Best Queens Moments
The New York Mets have reached the National League Championship Series, aiming to win their their first World Series since 1986. In between that time, Seinfeld, arguably the greatest television series of all time, came and went, with its titular star Jerry Seinfeld soon making his name as one of the most famous Mets fans in showbiz. The show gained a bit of a cult following amongst Yankees fans, primarily due to George Costanza's job in The Bronx, but the show had it's share of Mets moments as well...
When discussing Seinfeld's best episodes, The Boyfriend inevitably will come up almost every time. Of course well known for Jerry and Elaine fighting over the attention of new friend Keith Hernandez, the episode's best feature has to come from the JFK inspried "spitting" story from Kramer and Newman, seen below.
The Seinfeld Chronicles
The Mets' impact is felt in the very first episode of the series. After doing a comedy set, Jerry begs a random caller not to tell him the score of the Mets game, but Kramer (called Kessler in the first episode of the series) enters and declare with his first ever line of the series, "Boy the Mets really blew it tonight!", something Mets fans have said to themselves all too often until very recently.
The Baby Shower
Jerry is extremely reluctant to get illegal cable, but Kramer's advice that the Mets have 75 games on cable is juuuuuust enough for Jerry to take the plunge.
In an episode that's sure to warm the heart of any Mets fan, George tries to get himself fired from the Yankees by any means possible in order to nab a job with the Mets. Yankee artifacts like Babe Ruth's jersey and the 1996 World Series trophy are desecrated by George. Unfortunately for George, he is beaten at his own game by his boss Mr. Wilhlem.
Curb Your Enthusiasm
In a bonus scene from another Larry David series, Bill Buckner against makes a crucial error on a Mookie Wilson ball, dropping an autographed Mookie ball thrown to him by Larry. However, Bill does redeem himself by catching a child that was thrown out of a burning building.
Seinfeld is currently available to stream on Hulu.
