WGR Seinfeld Draft

May 15, 2020 - 1:23 pm

Earlier in the week, the acting and comedy world lost Jerry Stiller, who died at the age of 92. Still was featured in a number of roles throughout his acting career, but, perhaps, his most notable role came when he portrayed Frank Costanza in the hit sitcom Seinfeld from 1989 to 1998. In honor of Stiller and to reflect on, arguably, one of the most memorable sitcoms in television history, the afternoon crew of WGR Sports Radio 550 decided to conduct the WGR Seinfeld Draft on Friday!

This draft featured both Mike Schopp and "Sneaky Joe" DiBiase from the Dunn Tire Studios in Amherst, while Chris "Bulldog" Parker was broadcasting from his attic studios at home. In addition, the guys welcomed in one half of the Howard and Jeremy Show to make some picks and join in on the fun, Jeremy White!

Did we also mention that Howard Simon is first cousins with Jason Alexander, a.k.a. George Costanza?

If you remember from the summer of 2017, the afternoon crew held the WGR Sitcom Draft, where Seinfeld went second overall to Bulldog after Maryalice Demler from WGRZ-TV in Buffalo went with Cheers at the first overall selection.

The rules are simple: pick the best characters from the show and fill up the board.
