Jerry Seinfeld Blames Narco New York Trumpeter Mets Sun
Well, good luck with that. New York Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld is blaming a live performance of Timmy Trumpet’s “Narco” at Citi Field last week for his recent fainting spell.
In June, the team led its division with a 10.5. As of tonight, they are now only a half game behind the defending champion and Mets arch nemesis Atlanta Braves. Max Scherzer is injured, some bats are looking sluggish, and as any Mets fan knows well, bad things can happen in September.
Seinfeld sent out several messages on social media today in response to SNY’s report that the Mets were tied with the Braves atop the NL East after Tuesday’s action.
“I blame that stupid trumpet performance,” Seinfeld wrote. “Celebrate in season. We haven’t won anything yet. Bad fashion.”
“Narco” became the theme song for shut-down closer Edwin Diaz. Timmy Truba was brought to Citi Field to perform a live version of the song when Diaz entered.
Seinfeld, like many Mets fans, fears history is repeating itself.
“Just like when the Baja Men showed up to play ‘Who Let Dogs Out’ at 2000 WS,” he wrote in a separate comment. “That’s the end of the series.”
This is a reference to 2000 when the Mets used this song as their slogan. The Baja men did it before Game 4 of the World Series at Shea Stadium. The Mets never won a game.
