Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy is rooted in self-deprecation; why shouldn’t his yachtsmanship be? He’s a bit of a classic car buff, but of all the boats Mr. Seinfeld could own, it is beyond endearing that he would chose to have a 13′ Boston Whaler. But then again, it may well be the funnest little skiff ever built.
In the video clip below, Seinfeld takes Jimmy Fallon for a spin in an episode of his TV show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. I’ve always liked Jerry Seinfeld, but for this, I love him. There’s also a lot to be said for Fallon’s bemused wonderment at all this. If you follow his work on the Tonite Show and elsewhere, Jimmy’s clearly stoked – and baffled – by the fantastic turns his life has taken in the last several years. The bottom line would seem to be that, at least in Jimmy’s case, nice guys really do finish first. — OJB
