Any devoted Seinfeld fan knows that Jerry Seinfeld and Keith Hernandez have a history together. In 1992, the former Mets first baseman and “Game 6” hero guest starred in the classic Seinfeld episode, “The Boyfriend,” playing Jerry’s “man crush” who eventually pursues Elaine. On Wednesday, Seinfeld will join Hernandez and play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen in the broadcast booth as a guest analyst when the Mets face the Detroit Tigers at Citi Field. One can only assume that the reunion will produce entertainment genius equal to the “second spitter” routine.
Well, probably not, but at least Jerry is doing something other than The Marriage Ref. It’s also good to see that these two are still getting along after that love triangle between Keith, Jerry, and Elaine. And hopefully Keith will be able to stay awake for this ballgame.
So while it’s not quite the Seinfeld reunion so many have waited for, if the fans are not satisfied with how the game is called, this will offer followers of both Seinfeld and the Mets a glorious and always welcome opportunity to scream “Nice game, pretty boy!” from the cheap seats.
