What I Watched Last Night

Remember when the Seinfeld gang loved the Mets?

That was what I was thinking when I was watching the baseball game last night. I remember when Jerry had taped the Mets game and was about to watch it when Kramer came in and told him the final score of said game. I also recall the episode fashioned after the Zapruder film movie when Keith Hernandez spit on Kramer and Newman after Newman called Keith a "pretty boy" after the Mets game. That was in the early years of the show. Later, the gang's loyalties shifted when George became the Assistant to the Traveling Secretary for the Yankees.

The show's writers never mentioned the switch of team faith; it was just accepted. The same thing happened in Saved by the Bell. In the first season, Zach Morris and crew went to JFK Junior High in Indianapolis, Indiana. The next season they were all at Bayside in California. Without explanation.

Apparently, I am a curious individual and that has enabled me to pick up on these little nuances in these favorite shows of mine. I know that there are plenty of other television shows that do this same thing; I wish that I could name them and provide you with more examples, but I just can't. I feel like I know my readers and know that you know many more of these discrepancies; please feel free to have a discussion in the forum section of the Beachwood. For I am still struggling from too much Barrymore.

Anyway, about that game last night - Game 7s get me all excited and this one was for a trip to the World Series. Couldn't get more exciting right? Well, not for me, given that my mind wandered from the Mets to Seinfeld to Saved By the Bell to the Beachwood forum and now to this exact sentence. It is 1-1 in the top of the ninth while I am typing this and I really don't care what happens. I would rather catch The Colbert Report -I get that guy.

Oops. Looks like Barrymore rubbed off on the Mets too. What a shame that the Cards are in the World
Series. Is Colbert still on?
