Poor Jerry Seinfeld was duped into wearing the ‘Puffy Shirt’ by Kramer’s low-talker girlfriend, but a professional ice hockey team out in California is going to wear the shirts voluntarily. While Seinfeld said he didn’t want to be a pirate, the East Coast Hockey League’s (ECHL) Bakersfield Condors don’t have a problem with it. The club, which is based out in California, is an affiliate of the National Hockey League’s (NHL) Edmonton Oilers.

The Condors plan on wearing a version of the Puffy Shirt when they play at home on November 16 as their unique way to honour and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the debut of the Seinfeld show. Most readers may know all about the Puffy Shirt, but for those who have never seen the episode, Jerry inadvertently agrees to wear a shirt designed by Kramer’s girlfriend since he couldn’t hear a word she was saying.

He’s then presented with the shirt and has to wear the pirate-type creation during an appearance on the Today Show as he’s being interviewed by Bryant Gumbel. The Condors released a photo of their version of the shirt via the club’s official Twitter account. In addition, the names of some of the show’s most lovable characters will be sewn into the back of the jerseys. Players will be skating around the rink as Puddy, Kramer, Newman, Uncle Leo, the Bubble Boy, and Crazy Joe Davola.

Some of the sponsor’s names on the back of the hockey sweaters will be several of the television show’s most famous companies such as Pendant Publishing and Vandelay Industries. When the buzzer sounds to end the game the Puffy Shirt jerseys will be sold off via an auction to raise money for a worthy charity.
