| ||Kramer tells of spotting Joe DiMaggio in Dinky Donuts. Jerry can't believe a man of DiMaggio's stature would be "sitting at the counter in little, tiny, filthy, smelly Dinky Donuts." Says George: "I don't even like to sit next to a man on an airplane 'cause our knees might touch."|
| ||While pitching at a Yankees fantasy camp, Kramer is disgusted at Joe Pepitone's crowding of the plate. So he comes inside once, then plunks him with the next pitch. A fracas ensues, and Kramer decks Mickey Mantle, ending the week's games.|
| ||George convinces the Yankees to switch to cotton uniforms, assuring manager Buck Showalter that the Bombers would be "five degrees cooler than the other team." Initial reviews were glowing: "Wade Boggs: 'What a fabric! Finally we can breathe.' Luis Polonia: 'Cotton is king.' Paul O'Neill: 'I never dreamed anything could be so soft and fluffy.'" But the cotton unis would shrink, leaving the Yankees, "running like penguins." Worst of all: Don Mattingly split his pants.|
| ||Abstinence turns George into a genius, so he offers hitting tips to Bernie Williams and Derek Jeter: "Guys, hitting is not about muscle. It's simple physics. Calculate the velocity, v, in relation to the trajectory, t, in which g, gravity, of course remains a constant. It's not complicated." They say, as World Series winners, that they don't need help from an assistant traveling secretary who put them up in a Milwaukee Ramada. George reminds them it took them six games to dispose of the Braves.|
| ||Kramer overhears two men talking about a sure thing at the track, a horse named Pappanick. And last night's rain plays right into their hands. "This horse loves the slop. It's in his bloodlines. His father was a mudder, his mother was a mudder."|
| ||George gets a little too comfortable with the Southern lingo preferred by Astros management. Mr Wilhelm overhears him on the phone saying, "You tell that son of a bitch no Yankee is ever comin' to Houston. Not as long as you bastards are running things."|
| ||Jerry buys a $200 tennis racket because the club pro, Milos, says it's the only one he uses. Well, Milos is to tennis what Carl Lewis is to singing national anthems, and Jerry feels taken. Milos tries to make good by offering Jerry his wife.|
| ||Jerry has tickets to the Super Bowl, but can't attend because of the Drake's scheduled wedding. Kramer doesn't want them because he's only interested in Canadian football.|
| ||Upon introducing "The Summer of George," Costanza says he intends to play a game called "frolf" -- frisbee golf.|
