Fifteen years after the end of its original run, Seinfeld has been enjoying a bit of a renaissance. Just look at the popularity of the Modern Seinfeld Twitter account, which, as the name suggests, pitches present-day storylines about Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer (the feed's writer Jack Moore even parlayed its popularity into a sitcom writing job). Or the various Modern Seinfeld spoofs and spinoffs, like @TOSeinfeld and the surrealist "Weird Twitter" account @Seinfeld2000.

Over the weekend, Louisville sportscaster Adam Lefkoe got in on the action, dropping a whopping 41 classic Seinfeld lines and references into a five-minute broadcast. Some, admittedly, are a little forced, like the "Hellooooo, Newman" he leads off with, but others show flashes of brilliance, like his assertion that the 1996 Kentucky Wildcats were "dominant like the Moops."

The previous week, he pulled off a similar feat with wrestler's names ("After the Rutgers game last season, we knew Teddy Bridgewater was the ultimate warrior.").
