Jerry Seinfeld was in the SNY broadcast booth for the Mets game against the Detroit Tigers today, calling the game and reminiscing about Seinfeld and Lady Gaga’s recent antics with Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez.
Not only was Jerry Seinfeld absolutely hilarious, but he also was really good at calling the game AND providing color comedy commentary!
Seinfeld also discussed Keith Hernandez’ memorable guest appearance on Seinfeld, as SNY came back from break with a couple of clips.
Here are some choice exchanges between the trio from the event:
SEINFELD: “This is the greatest booth in baseball… 1-2 on Johnny Damon…. Gary Cohen is the greatest broadcaster… the best booth”
“I don’t want to do play-by-play. I’m here for the color Mets comedy.”
ME: “Wow, Jerry Seinfeld actually does some great play-by-play. Ron Darling better watch out! His seat is in danger! LOL”
SEINFELD: “Speaking of innovative at first base… Who was more innovative at first base than Keith Hernandez?”
“I dont think there’s anything more fun than being a Mets fan.They have 2 World Championships but they are two of the most exciting a team can have.”
“When are we going to talk about Lady Gaga, that’s why I’m here.”
“Well we don’t understand the kids today & the music business. Maybe, I’m sure we’ll all be bigger fans now that she cursed us out.”
“She should make a nice apology to the Mets fans… then I’m willing to forget the whole thing.”
“Is that Johnny Damon in center?!? What is he doing out there? He can’t cover THAT much ground!”
“Why are the Tigers EVEN HERE?!?”
And when Mets on-field reporter Kevin Burkhardt made a reference to wearing a shirt to the game from the J. Peterman catalog in Seinfeld’s honor (a Seinfeld reference), Jerry replied right back:
“Don’t do my stuff, Kevin.”
I think Gary, Keith, and Ron should have Jerry Seinfeld on once (or twice) EVERY season and make it a yearly Seinfeld Night! So hilarious!
