Since Buck Showalter has taken over the Baltimore Orioles, they have gone 9-2 over their last 11 games. Before this stretch of games, they owned the worst record in all of baseballl. One has to wonder what changed their luck? I have a feeling George Costanza was involved in this. We all know how things turned out for George while he was working for the Yankees, being traded for Tyler Chicken and all. Back in 1994, Don Mattingly split his pants taking the field, but it looks like George got it right this time around. 

GEORGE: Listen, Buck, I uh…obviously I don’t need to talk to you about the importance of player morale, but uh…I’ve been talking to some of the guys, and some of them – I don’t want to mention any names – but some of them…they’re not too happy with the polyester uniforms.


GEORGE: Well, they get very hot in the polyester. You know, it’s not a natural fibre. I think they would prefer cotton.

SHOWALTER: Cotton, huh?

GEORGE: Yeah. Cotton breathes, you see, it’s much softer. Imagine playing games and your team is five degrees cooler than the other team. Don’t you think that would be an advantage? They’re cooler, they’re more comfortable…they’re happier – they’re gonna play better.

SHOWALTER: You may have something there, George.

GEORGE: Oh – I’ve got something.

SHOWALTER (considering): Hmm. Cotton uniforms.

Of course those aren’t my words. They come from the one and only George Costanza…

Lady Gaga actually gave the finger to Mets fans at Citifield, and then she showed up at the Yankees clubhouse half-naked and was talking with some of the players. BUT…this whole story about Lady Gaga being banned from the Yankees clubhouse is not true at all. 


NEW YORK — Lady Gaga is still welcome at Yankee Stadium, but just not in the clubhouse. Especially not after a loss.

“She’s not banned,” New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman said on Sunday afternoon. “Celebrities aren’t banned. If Michael Jordan showed up here he would have access [to the clubhouse], but not after a loss.”

Following the Yankees’ loss to the New York Mets on Friday night, Lady Gaga talked her way past security and into the Yankees’ clubhouse. She reportedly met with some players, including Robinson Cano. The media, which is supposed to be allowed into the clubhouse 10 minutes after the final pitch, was held out.

“That was the wrong time and the wrong place,” Cashman said. “It’s been taken care of.”

The New York Post reported on Sunday that Yankees co-chairman Hal Steinbrenner was furious at the display Lady Gaga put on in the clubhouse — dressed in a half-buttoned Yankees jersey and a bikini bottom, she swilled whiskey and fondled her chest, the Post said, citing sources — and that Steinbrenner had permanently banned Gaga from the team’s clubhouse. Cashman downplayed that, but added that the Yankees have other places in the Stadium where players can interact with celebrities.

“There is just a time and place,” said Cashman. “It is not her fault.”

Cashman said that no one was fired over the security breach. When George Steinbrenner was in charge, employees would have likely been let go over such an incident.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi says he doesn’t think celebrities cause a distraction for his team.

“Our guys know that when it’s time to play, it’s time to play, and they’re used to it,” Girardi said. 

There were reports that Alex Rodriguez met with Gaga on Friday, but Cano says he was the only player to see her.

“She can sing, I’ll tell you that,” Cano said


Apparently, Joba also met Lady Gaga and had her sign a baseball:

“Great game by everyone. Big Hits and great pitching! Side note, met Lady GaGa yesterday, she was very cool and signed a baseball for me!!”


This is some of the commentary from Jerry Seinfeld, while he was talking New York Mets baseball with Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen on SNY:

Seinfeld on Gaga: I think it’s fair to say we’re all big fans of Lady Gaga. Lame out-of-it white guys in their mid-50s is her core audience.

Seinfeld on Ladyy Gaga: “I heard she was wearing some sort of studded bikini thing, and that’s always great at a baseball game.”

Seinfeld on his suite after Lady Gaga used it: “We brought the bedbug dog in. Rusty? What’s his name? The beagle? It’s all clean.”

Seinfeld on whether George could have worked for Mets: “No. George had to work for the Yankees, because it was a better mismatch.”

Seinfeld: “Is that Johnny Damon in center? What is he doing out there? Get him in! He can’t cover that much ground!”

Courtesy of David Lennon:

Just before the end of the inning, Seinfeld begs the question, “When are we going to talk about Lady Gaga.” Looks like we have some fun to look forward to in the top of the fourth …

At last! Seinfeld addresses the largely-publicized Lady Gaga spat. Seinfeld first admits, “I didn’t really get upset first of all.” He continued, “I’m very protective of my Mets fans. I love my Mets fans. And I did not like the finger.” Case closed?

“There’s nothing wrong” with falling asleep at work, Seinfeld said. “When a guy’s head hits the desk, you know you are getting every last nickel out of that guy.” Classic Seinfeld humor. (By the way, that was Seinfeld on Hernandez nodding off during a game.)

Seinfeld on WFAN with Steve Somers & Craig Carton Goes all Gaga

Here are some bits from the New York Post:

“This woman is a jerk. I hate her,” Seinfeld joked during an interview on WFAN radio Monday night. “I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for.”

“You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now? he said.

In his trademark stand-up schtick, Seinfeld added, “Why is she giving the finger? How old is the finger? How’d it even get to be the finger?”

By the time fans and photographers spotted her, she had shed her coat to reveal bedazzled undies that looked like the get-up she wore in the video for her single “Telephone.”

When host Steve Somers brought up the episode, Seinfeld at first said, “I wish her the best,” but then added, “you take one ‘A’ off of that and you’ve got gag.”

“I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers,” he said. “I’m older, I’m 56. I look at Lady Gaga the way Keith Hernandez watches these kids when they pull the pocket out, they wear the inside-out pocket. … Do you think he understands that? He can’t understand that. That’s a new game, that’s kids.”

He added, “I’m not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure — you could die of exposure.”

“She is talented,” admitted Seinfeld. “I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff.”

Seinfeld said he didn’t know she’d been taken to his box until he arrived for the night game of the doubleheader.

Then when Somers pointed out that Gaga was at the Yankee game Friday, Seinfeld said, “Oh please, wake me when it’s over.”

“You’ve had enough of her?” Somers asked.

“Yeah,” Seinfeld said.

If you listen to the audio clips, a lot of the things he said were tongue-in-cheek. He also meant some of the things he said, and good for him for speaking out about it. She skanked up his box. Haha.

Seinfeld Calls For Lady Gaga Apology on SNY

“She should make a nice apology to the Met fans,” Seinfeld said. “Come on. We had her as a guest and then I’m willing to forget the whole thing.”

If George M. Steinbrenner III was still in power, you could bet your ass that he would’ve had fired some people after this fiasco.

Is this really the life of the assistant to the traveling secretary? What a life they have…. 

George: Well, I wish I could say the same, but I must say, with all due respect, I find it very hard to see the logic behind some of the moves you have made with this fine organization. In the past twenty years you have caused myself, and the city of New York, a good deal of distress, as we have watched you take our beloved Yankees and reduced them to a laughing stock, all for the glorification of your massive ego! 

Mr. Steinbrenner: Hire this man!
