Soup Nazi from 'Seinfeld' at Mets game
NEW YORK (AP)
The only thing missing was a piping-hot bowl of mulligatawny. Or maybe a free piece of bread.
The Soup Nazi showed up at Citi Field on Saturday night.
Actor Larry Thomas, who played the ornery soup genius on the TV show ''Seinfeld'' appeared — in character — to give DVD prizes to fans at Citi Field who correctly answered trivia questions about the show.
Dressed in chef's whites just as he did when he famously booted ''Seinfeld'' characters George Costanza and Elaine Benes from his shop, Thomas waved to the crowd on the big screen, mouthing the words: ''No soup for you!''
Later, he posed for pictures with another winner.
Jerry Stiller, who played Costanza's father on the show, led the crowd in singing ''Take Me Out To the Ball Game'' from a suite during the seventh-inning stretch, belting out an a capella rendition of the song to both cheers and laughter.
