Returning to the booth for the first time in three years, comedian Jerry Seinfeld added his particular brand of observational humor to the New York Mets-San Francisco Giants tilt Tuesday night on the SNY broadcast. Seated among analyst Ron Darling, former "Seinfeld" guest star Keith Hernandez and play-by-play man Gary Cohen, Seinfeld said he watches Mets games on TV "every night" — when he's not at Citi Field — and it certainly prepared him well for the broadcast.
"This is my team," Seinfeld said. "I know we're not going to win. I don't care."
He was right. The Giants won 8-5.
Perhaps cognizant of the recent uptick in concussion awareness, Seinfeld also lobbied for more padding on outfield walls.
"I do not understand why outfield walls are not padded in such a way that we don't risk a guy's entire career for the sake of a couch cushion," Seinfeld said.
Overall, he was very Seinfeldian. His contributions are better observed than repeated in text, so enjoy the video. And the veal.
