Yes, it’s true.
More or less.
You see, Mr. Seinfeld is producing a new reality series for NBC called The Marriage Ref.
Says Seinfeld: “After nine years of marriage, I have discovered that the comedic potential of this subject is quite rich.”
Men are from Mars. Women are from Venus!
Marriage jokes. Now there is a fresh, untapped topic for material. I eagerly await his next project: What is the Deal with Poopy Diapers? (And Other Hilarious Observations About Parenting). And maybe we’ll get really lucky and Seinfeld will get divorced one day, allowing him to knock us dead with some zingers about ex-wives!
Oh, right — what does this have to do with sports, you ask? Well, first of all, I think the sudden and gruesome death of an American cultural icon is fairly big news, sports-related or not. But, also, the show is to feature “squabbling couples” who will “air their differences to a panel of comedians, sports stars and celebrities.” That should be good.
Sports star panelist: “Have you considered beating your wife or getting a mistress in every major city across the country? It did wonders for my marriage.”
