Apparently, Jerry Seinfeld's sneakers are the reason the Mets are going to the World Series
The Mets are World Series-bound, quite possibly because of a pair of magic shoes -- Jerry Seinfeld's, in particular. Before you dismiss that as hogwash, look at the evidence:
After completing their NLCS sweep over the Cubs, the Mets are about to play in their first Series in 15 years. Two things made this possible: First, Daniel Murphy's six-game homer streak, during which he turned into a modern day Hercules and bent reality to his will. Second, Seinfeld's sneakers.
The comedian, a die-hard Mets fan if there ever was one, got a pair of customized blue-and-orange Nikes before the start of the season.
And they are, apparently, magic.
According to him, they're the reason the Mets keep winning. I mean, they went head-to-head against Back to the Future and came out the victor. That's no easy feat.
So, the Mets should thank ... magic baseball shoes? Yes, well, look -- there's no way to prove that Seinfeld's sneakers aren't responsible for the Mets success this year, so we might as well accept it now.
