Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTSBRIEFING -

Fans of the fic­tional Ge­orge Stein­bren­ner from “Se­in­feld” are go­ing to get a week’s worth of the Bronx Bombers’ owner on TBS.

In honor of the death of the New York Yan­kees owner, the cable net­work is de­vot­ing July 19-23 to show­ing 10 episodes that fea­ture Stein­bren­ner. The real Stein­bren­ner died Tues­day at age 80.

The bom­bas­tic owner was por­trayed on the show as an arm-flail­ing, non­sense-spew­ing boss who in­stilled fear in his em­ploy­ees. Se­ries co-cre­ator Larry David pro­vided the voice for the char­ac­ter, and Stein­bren­ner was a fan of the hit 1990s com­edy.

Jerry’s friend Ge­orge Costanza works for the Yan­kees and ends up be­ing traded for a fer­mented chicken drink and chicken snacks.
