Though I’ve tried to quit making so many Seinfeld references (after all, the show has been off the air for more than 13 years now), some situations cry out for a reminder of one of the many moments in the nine-year series that mirror the events of real life.
For DeSean Jackson, a league source tells PFT that the team’s decision to deactivate Jackson on Sunday against the Cardinals arises from the fact that Jackson’s alarm clock didn’t go off, causing him to oversleep and miss a morning special-teams meeting this week.
Aficionados of the Seinfeld franchise immediately will be reminded of distance runner Jean Paul Jean-Paul, who missed the Olympics marathon by oversleeping and who then overslept and nearly missed the New York City Marathon.
Either way, there’s a good chance that plenty of Philly fans will now be calling Jackson a little bastard. (If you didn’t get that one right away, fast forward to 2:20 of the clip.)
