As the New York Jets continue to endure hot summer days in practice, legendary comedian Larry David invaded training camp to lighten things up.
It’s not easy being a football player once you’re in the full swing of things in training camp. For the New York Jets and that blazing heat of New Jersey, it’s easy to see players get frustrated. Altercations, pressure to perform and teammates competing against each other can make tensions high as coaches do their best to separate the contenders from pretenders.
As the Jets continue to get a good idea on what their final roster will look like, they got a special guest that was in attendance to oversee practice. Legendary comedian Larry David graced his presence to the Jets in glorious fashion. It wasn’t long ago that David recently chimed in that he would be a fantastic offensive coordinator. He also gave some shaving advice to quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

With David in attendance, the social media accounts of the Jets let fans ask questions with the best ones being answered to the masses. Even David agreed that Fitzpatrick looks “pretty pretty good” in the grand scheme of things. Like David recently said, it’s great to actually see the face of your quarterback.
According to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com, David is actually a huge fan of the Jets and loves to keep it real on the latest of the team despite what the majority says. It must have been a real treat to have David in attendance for Fitzpatrick who is a huge fan of Seinfeld.

As a matter of fact, so is head coach Todd Bowles.
Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what Bowles said in a recent press conference with reporters:
On if he talked to Larry David…
I said hi.
On if he’s watched Seinfeld…
I’ve seen plenty of Seinfeld episodes.
On if he has a favorite Seinfeld episode…
I like the soup man. [“The Soup Nazi”]
Overall, it’s nice to have something a bit different to mix things up around training camp than the usual positional battles, players on the roster bubble or the latest on injuries. Laughter is the energy of the soul and well, for a practice in Jets’ training camp in August, David made many around him smile and laugh while rooting his favorite team towards success in 2016.
