  • Jerry meets his sports idol Keith Hernandez and is dying to become friends with him, while Kramer and Newman claim Keith spat on them.

    This is a classic episode, one of those you can't help but watch every time it reruns. It's also interesting because Jerry gets to be as funny as George or Kramer, his very "serious" and "scientific" approach to the now famous "second spitter theory" certainly deserves its spot in TV history.

    Even for a Brazilian woman who has absolutely no interest in American sports for a male target audience, I found Jerry's man-crush on a sport legend completely funny and understandable, I guess guys will be guys anywhere in the world, and this kind of man-crushes is really universal.

    A truthly great episode.
