TBS to air 10 episodes of “Seinfeld” with Larry David as George Steinbrenner in weeklong tribute

The Boss may have ruled over the New York Yankees and lived in Tampa, but the late George Steinbrenner has friends in Atlanta, as TBS announced today it'd broadcast 10 episodes that featured his likeness — and voiced by Larry David — in a tribute to him.

Appropriate or not, it's all happening next week. I'm a Red Sox fan (although there is irrefutable evidence that I was a young devotee also of the late Thurman Munson), so I'll just leave my feelings out of it. Here's the schedule:

Monday, July 19

7 p.m. “The Opposite” – George convinces Steinbrenner to give him a job.

7:30 p.m. “The Secretary” – George finds out Steinbrenner’s secretary makes more than he does.

Tuesday, July 20

7 p.m. “The Race” – George heads to Cuba to recruit baseball players for Steinbrenner.

7:30 p.m. “The Wink” – Steinbrenner lists all the people he’s fired over the years.

Wednesday, July 21

7 p.m. “The Hot Tub” – Steinbrenner convinces George that a hot tub is the perfect way to relieve stress.

7:30 p.m. “The Caddy” – George’s father (Jerry Stiller) confronts Steinbrenner about a traded player.

Thursday, July 22

7 p.m. “The Calzone” – Steinbrenner gets the idea to put Yankees clothes in a pizza oven.

7:30 p.m. “The Nap” – George’s napping habits at work lead Steinbrenner to think he has ESP.

Friday, July 23

7 p.m. “The Millennium” – George does everything he can to get fired, but Steinbrenner loves what he does.

7:30 p.m. “The Muffin Tops” – George’s relationship with the Yankees finally ends when Steinbrenner trades him.
