Seinfeld's Greatest George Steinbrenner Moments

Some of us know George Steinbrenner from Seinfeld and some of us know him as the brave, boisterous and awesome owner of the New York Yankees. When he began getting lampooned on Seinfeld, he reportedly got a kick out of it. Voiced by Larry David, the Steinbrenner from Seinfeld is a caricature that even Steinbrenner admits got it pretty close to the mark. In memory of George Steinbrenner's passing today, here are the 8 greatest Steinbrenner Seinfeld moments.

    In the episode where George (Costanza... this is going to get tricky) discovered the joys of taking daynaps under his desk at work, he takes a nap and oversleeps only to have Steinbrenner come into his office looking for George, curious about what the title of the song "Heartbreaker" was.

    Steinbrenner, the ever persistent gentleman, waits patiently in George's office and ends up singing the worst version of Heartbreaker ever (that is, AFTER his grandchildren show up and try to play with George).

    George then calls Jerry and tells him to distract Steinbrenner.

    Jerry calls in a bomb threat.

    "The Stock Tip" is the fifth episode of the first season of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld. It aired on June 21, 1990.

Jerry does so, but ... more on Wikipedia

    Steinbrenner comes over to the Costanza's to let George's parents know that he died and was a hard worker. The pay off is Jerry Stiller (Constanza's dad) letting him have it for a trade that Steinbrenner made some years back.

    A perfect example of George's relationship with papa Costanza. The greatest part of this clip is the message that George's dad leaves on Jerry's machine.

    "The Caddy" is the 122nd episode of NBC sitcom Seinfeld. This was the 12th episode for the seventh season. It aired on January 25, 1996. more on Wikipedia

    In this clip, Steinbrenner needs a calzone from the best calzone place in the world. He sends George out to go get one for him, but of course, whenever George Costanza needs to prove himself in some way, shape or form, he falls flat.

    Steinbrenner NEEDS his calzone, though. He just needs it.

    "Costanza is in the building!"

    Too bad it's just toasty pants that got warmed up with a calzone.

    George becomes Steinbrenner's pet, when he shares an eggplant calzone with him. Kramer is raving about wearing clothes "straight out of the dryer." Jerry thinks that Elaine's boyfriend is dating her without really ever asking her out. He offers to bring Jerry some Cuban cigars from Canada. Jerry takes ... more on Wikipedia

    George Steinbrenner running through a list of people that he has fired over the years was one of the greatest gags Seinfeld did on the proud owner of the Yankees.

    Yogi Berra, Lou Panella, Bucky Dent, BIlly Martin, Dallas Green, Dick Hauser, Bill Verton, Billy Martin, Scott Marrow, Billy Martin, Bob Lemon, Billy Martin, Gene Michael...

    George Steinbrenner himself made an unaired cameo on the show.

    The full cameo ended up on the cutting room floor. No one's really clear as to why, but many suspect that while Steinbrenner was comfortable with the lampooning he received, he thought being involved was a little too much.

    As the big day grows nearer, George and Susan order their invitations. Susan lets him choose the cheap ones. George tries to think of a way out. Elaine suggests smoking and Kramer suggests a pre-nuptial agreement. Jerry, thinking of a single future with Kramer, nearly gets hit by a car but is saved by ... more on Wikipedia

    Steinbrenner Commits George - Seinfeld

    After trying to take the credit for someone else's work, George's plan backfires on him when the person who did the work worries Steinbrenner to the point of wanting to help George out... by committing him to a mental institution.

    George ends up being taken away while Steinbrenner spits off what is possibly the funniest Steinbrenner rant in Seinfeld history. Not the funniest moment, but definitely the strangest, most memorable rant.
