TBS to air Seinfeld shows honoring The Boss
By Spencer Fordin / MLB.com
Steinbrenner's character on the show was almost always seen from behind, and he often engaged in long monologues on random topics. TBS will start its week of episodes -- all of which air at 7 and 7:30 p.m. on weeknights -- with "The Opposite," the fifth-season finale in which chronically underemployed George Costanza lands his dream job with the Yankees.
TBS will also show "The Secretary" on Monday, an episode in which Costanza finds out that Steinbrenner's secretary earns more money than he does. The week-long run of episodes will continue on Tuesday -- when TBS shows "The Race" and "The Wink" -- and on Wednesday, when Costanza gets deeper into Yankees lore with "The Hot Tub" and "The Caddy."
Thursday will feature "The Calzone" and "The Nap," two more episodes with a Steinbrenner theme. The week will close out on Friday, with "The Millennium" and "The Muffin Tops," the end of Costanza's run with the Yankees. In that last episode, Steinbrenner trades Costanza away in exchange for an upgrade to the team's chicken concession at Yankee Stadium.
