Mets Farm Team Are Masters of Seinfeld Anniversary Domain

Bravo, Brooklyn Cyclones. Bravo.

CyclonesPuffyShirts

There was no shortage over the weekend of tributes to Seinfeld on the occasion of the beloved NBC sitcom’s 25th anniversary. But none did it with quite the flair as this group Saturday. From a Rolling Stone report:

Players took batting practice in puffy shirts; a guy named George Costanza (who drove down from Rhode Island) did radio commentary; the foul poles were re-named Festivus poles (and the stadium dubbed Vandelay Industries Park); and the Soup Nazi threw out the first pitch.

There were other nods as well, but here’s the kicker. In a twist that no doubt Larry David and co. would have loved, all this Seinfeld love failed to inspire the home side. Final score Saturday: Cyclones 2 – Aberdeen IronBirds 18!

Still, the Cyclones had fun with the task of covering this puffy-shirt massacre. The team website game-summary headline reads: “NO SOUP FOR US!
