NEW YORK, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Jerry Seinfield wants Giants quarterback Eli Manning to be able to watch his favorite show even in Wisconsin so he is supplying him with a complete DVD set.
The Fox affiliate in Green Bay dumped "Seinfeld" from its schedule for this Saturday to deprive Manning for his favorite program. Doing his best Soup Nazi impersonation, Jay Zollar, general manager of WLUK-TV, went on air to proclaim "Eli, no Seinfeld for you."
"I'm going to send Eli a complete collection of 'Seinfeld' DVDs, and a partial collection of 'Hogan's Heroes' for inspiration," Seinfeld told the New York Post.
The winner of Sunday's game between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers will get a trip to Super Bowl XLII in Arizona to play either the New England Patriots or the Indianapolis Colts.
Zollar said he did not want "to give aid and comfort to the enemy." Seinfeld responded in kind.
"I'm dispatching George Costanza to be the new traveling secretary for the Packers," he said, referring to an episode where George became traveling secretary to the Yankees and replaced their uniforms with all-too-shrinkable cotton.
