Welcome to Vandelay Industries Park

Via the New York Daily News: The Mets’ single-A farm team on Coney Island wants its fans to be masters of their domain:

In a promotion straight out of Bizarro World, the Brooklyn Cyclones will celebrate “Salute to Seinfeld Night” in honor of the “show about nothing.”

Scheduled for July 5, the 25th anniversary of the show’s first airing, the event includes free Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” Bobblehead dolls to the first 2,500 fans who arrive at MCU Park — which will be called Vandelay Industries Park for the special occasion.

The Cyclones are also promising a free ticket to anybody who shows up with a business card proving they are a latex salesman, as long as the telephone number given isn’t for an apartment on the Upper East Side.

Unfortunately, there’s no truth to the rumor that the right-field foul pole will be replaced with the aluminum pipe Frank Costanza uses during Festivus.

Students’ Anti-Gun Views

Are children innocents or are they leaders? Are teenagers fully autonomous decision-makers, or are they lumps of mental clay, still being molded by unfolding brain development? The Left seems to have a particularly hard time deciding these days. Take, for example, the high-school students from Parkland, ... Read More
