A disclaimer from the creator: I am a massive fan of Seinfeld. The characters were put into the replica as a bonus to add to the tribute. The only reason they are killable is because I wanted to keep it in traditional Doom fashion, because what is doom without violence and death? This is in no way a “hate video” towards Seinfeld or the cast. It is a tribute and an homage to one of the greatest television shows of all-time, as well as one of the greatest video games of all-time. Thank you.

If you put aside the fact that the most iconic sitcom cast of all time is winding up on the business end of this 8-bit shotgun, this is brilliant. I never played “Doom” per se, but I wasted hours of my life in front of a direct ripoff of it, “Spear of Destiny,” in which the object was to kill Nazis who were guarding the spear that pierced Jesus’ side on the cross and had the power to make their army invincible. When you shot one of them, they’d yell out “Mein leiben!” as they died. This “Seinfeld” version is right on the money, right down to the perfect use of the signature catchphrases every time one of them is sent to the great coffee shop in the sky. Sure, it’s kind of dark and disturbing. But as a pop culture mashup? Genius.

Bangor Daily NewsInfielder Yoan Moncada, the Red Sox top prospect, made his Double-A debut for Portland going 1-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored Tuesday night … Moncada was also good for two diving defensive stops. Plus, he made a lunging grab on a liner that he turned for a double play.

But, don’t get used to it. he doesn’t plan to be here long.

“He said he never really heard of the state or the city,” said Portland’s athletic trainer Eric Velazquez, as he translated an interview for Moncada before the game. … “This is just another step towards getting to the big leagues, which is his goal.” 

I appreciate Yoan Moncada’s Nook LaLoosh attitude. That he’s a short-timer in Portland and before anybody knows what hit them, he’ll be in The Show, giving everybody the heat and announcing his presence with authority. As a matter of fact, I love it. You don’t make it out of Double-A with a little bit of useful arrogance.

But as a general rule, the best way to ingratiate yourself to your new (temporary) neighbors is to say you’ve never heard of their state before. The great state of Vacationland is home to some of the finest Americans, from Civil War Major General Joshua Chamberlain to Steven King to Dale Arnold. And to act like it’s just another forgettable U.S. state like Idaho, one of the Dakotas or, God forbid, Canada.

Those Maine-iacs are salt of the Earth, decent red-blooded Americans. And someday when Moncada is tearing it up in Fenway, he’s going to want them in his corner. So now might be the perfect time for a sincere, heartfelt apology through a bi-lingual interpreter. He better do it now, since he won’t be in Portland for long.
