"That Was Real, And That Was Spectacular!" Ian Eagle Shoehorned A Seinfeld Reference Into His Call Of Joe Johnson's Game-Winner

I watched this game while sort of glancing at the television and then looking away again, so when I first heard this call, from the YES Network's Ian Eagle, I thought it was pretty irredeemably dweeby, regardless of the quality of the source material. Now that I've watched again and seen that Jerry Seinfeld was in the crowd, I think the same thing, but you have to give Eagle a little bit of credit for improvising on the spot—much better than yelling "BUTTER", which he does about 15 seconds later. Someone load up the YouTube for the seemingly oblivious Greg Anthony.
