Bill Buckner Seeks Redemption on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”
Curb Your Enthusiasm is a show that has built a strong following during its eight-year run on HBO. Star Larry David has shown that he can carry the humor that made him famous during his days as a writer and producer for Seinfeld. The most recent episode, "Mister Softee," is roped into the world of sports collectibles with an appearance by 1986 World Series goat Bill Buckner.
Without getting into the plot of the episode, Larry (David as an obnoxious persona of himself) runs across Buckner at a baseball collectibles show and is able to acquire a Mookie Wilson autographed baseball as a gift for his manager, Jeff Greene (played by Jeff Garlin). Hijinks ensue and Larry and Buckner find friendship.
