Larry Thomas, Famous for His Role in Seinfeld, Appears in Character at Game for a Popular National League Team

If I told you that actor Larry Thomas made a special appearance at Citi Field to catch a New York Mets game, while also giving out DVD prizes to those that could answer trivia questions successfully, what would you say?

All signs point to: LARRY WHO?

How about a couple quotes to act as hints?

What if I told you that Thomas became famous for dropping such lines as:mr-met-new-york-mets-mascot

“You want bread? Three dollars!”

“You’re pushing your luck, little man.”

and the most obvious of all…

“No soup for you!”

By now, most of you realize that Larry Thomas is famous for his role as the “Soup Nazi” on the popular sitcom Seinfeld.


Larry Thomas played the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld, and he visited Citi Field recently – in character

The fact that Thomas showed up in full character to a Mets game is great, in my opinion – and truly something that had to be enjoyable for the Big Apple faithful who continue to come out and back a baseball franchise that is clearly in turmoil.

Supporting a team that is facing financial problems and sporting a last place standing in the National League East division as of this weekend, it certainly must have been a refreshing spin for die-hard Mets fans to receive attention from the soup magician, as well as getting a “Take Me Out To the Ballgame” show by Thomas’ fellow Seinfeld co-star Jerry Stiller.

Oh, and with a 4-2 victory on Saturday night, the “Amazins” put another notch in the win column, too.  Not a bad night for a team that’s desperately in need of more bread… just don’t ask for it from the Soup Nazi.

    I’m more shocked that they allowed the guy to be on the mound that long… to the point that he was able to give up that many runs. The bullpen must have been really depleted.

    Well, think about a lot of the folks out there that have all that money, and the types of personalities that so many of them possess…

    The idiocy that’s now going on within both MLB and NFL makes me wonder what’ll happen next ? The McCourts through 2004-09 borrowed in excess of $100million from the Dodgers as the owners but as of yet the loan has yet to be repaid . Now the organization hasn’t been even able to meet payroll for the months of April May or June . Never mind the crap that’s now happening with the Mets . Both sports are being ran by a bunch mindless as_holes !

    Yes, most definitely two big-time franchises that are having major issues right now… could argue that either is in worse shape than the other.

    Dude, ha ha… he’s probably hiding out with Steve Bartman.

    I’m assuming that’s a none paid appearance on Thomas’ part as the Mets are almost as bad off as the Dodgers !

    I hear Kramer will be making an appearance in front of an all minority crowd made up of African Americans , Hispanics , Palestinians and Hasidic Jews . I think that ought to go down well in that area of Flushing , NYC !

    So where’s Michael Richards at these days?

    That he is… and hey, why not… it’s a sitcom with staying power and one that people quote all the time. I doubt it happens, but it would be a great idea to generate some additional interest in the Mets. The team needs it with what they are going through…

    Hope you had a great weekend, buddy… and your Rays… ON FIRE. Later – KP

    What’s next? Maybe Newman delivering the line-up card. Cosmo sliding across home plate. Seinfeld is a Mets fan so anything is possible.
