George Costanza Never Considered this Scenario

(Note: Please do not read any more in to this then the rambling’s of a bitter Mets fan who not only had to watch the Yankees clinch the ALCS last night but do it with in 15 minutes of the Giants losing.  I don’t really want to see anyone hurt.) George Costanza once considers the possibility of an entire baseball team being wiped out in a plane crash (The Boyfriend Part 1)

GEORGE: You know Keith, what I’ve always wondered, with all these ball clubs flying around all season don’t you think there would be a plane crash? … KEITH: (to Jerry) Do you perform anywhere in new York right now? JERRY: I’m performing in this club on the east Side. You should come in. GEORGE: But if you think about it…26 teams, 162 games a season, you’d think eventually an entire team would get wiped out.

George  never considered a Yankees – Phillies World Series which for Mets fans makes it virtually impossible to root for either team, and they don’t even need to fly so we can’t even root for a plane crash (bus or train crash anyone?) Another classic scene from the same episode

    Hello Cohen….

    OK, so this Yankees fan can’t get too upset with you now that you’ve used Seinfeld to help make your point. Emoticon

    By the way, I love that this page: { Link } has already been updated with the following information:

    The New York Yankees of the American League have played in 40 of the 105 Series through 2009 and have won 26 World Series championships through 2008, the most of any Major League franchise and exactly one quarter of all World Series titles won to date.

    That is all. Emoticon

    If the Yankees win the World Series, they will have started the decade winning the Series and will have ended the decade winning it as well. Go Yanks! Emoticon

    This isn’t baseball, but just over 50 years years ago this almost happened to Manchester United.
