This concept is lost on Jerry Seinfeld, who was so rattled by the booing of Mets fans during All-Star introductions of their division rivals that he used words like "embarrassed," "horrible," and "Taliban."

Seinfeld even went as far as to take a shot at Philly, telling Steve Somers of WFAN to "name another city they would do that in besides Philly."
