Oh, let's just call is a story about nothing.

Today's New York Times reports on how Brooklyn's minor-league baseball team marked the 25th anniversary of the TV show Seinfeld.

And the first 3,000 attendees at the temporarily renamed Vandelay Industries Park received a Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” bobblehead.

All that and more celebrated “25 years of nothing” on Saturday, when, in honor of the debut of “Seinfeld” a quarter century ago, the Brooklyn Cyclones transformed MCU Park in Coney Island into a one-night shrine to one of New York City’s enduring contributions to television comedy. ...

Here's how one New York-area TV station covered it:
