After Jerome Allen "Jerry" Seinfeld finally wrapped his nine-season stint as the crank-ass king of network TV, he got married, gained some weight, bred a couple of rug rats, and stopped pretending to be a nice guy. Basically, the Brooklyn-bred comic let loose. He was rich, powerful, and famous enough to just be Jerry. He got meaner. He got fussier. He got funnier.
And a few weeks ago, Seinfeld let loose all over Lady Gaga when she gave New York Mets fans the "fuck you" finger before being inexplicably escorted to the sitcom legend's private box. In an interview with Steve Somers of NYC's WFAN Sports Radio, Seinfeld railed against Gaga: "This woman's a jerk. I hate her," he continued, "I can't believe they put her in my box that I paid for! You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we're living in now? It's pathetic."
Now, Seinfeld is bringing his rants to Miami. He'll hate on Ms. Germanotta and her off-stage antics. He'll lament the woeful state of the New York Mets. And probably, he'll pick at the Magic City's many defects. Let's face it: We're an easy target.
