I’m not sure which scene it is, but i just wanted to pay tribute to the late Frank Costanza, aka Jerry Stiller. R.I.P.
Let’s just pretend he’s castigating George for not having any gold in his portfolio.

I think Larry David was the voice of Steinbrenner back then. I didn’t know it back when Seinfeld was still airing new episodes.

That trade was defensible. Trades can only be criticized at the time, under the circumstances in which they made. Not with the benefit of hindsight after you know what actually subsequently occurred.

Found the scene. For some reason Steinbrenner thinks George has died and he's telling George's parents:

Not evident what this is in response to. Scrolled all the way back to April 18th but not seeing anything by Mountaineer.

This is the avatar thread. He's talking about Mountaineer's avatar. (A picture of the Falcon 9.)

Missed that...was just reading the message. I'll have to note it next time I see something from Mountaineer (provided he does not change it again prior to then. He seemed to have the same one for a long time....now they seem to change frequently?).

Yes indeed. It’s the recent launch of the X-37B. Adds a nice double entendres virtual background to my Zoom meetings too. ;)
