Jerry Seinfeld declined to speak to me and other newspaper scribes about his gig in the SNY booth beginning in the third inning Wednesday night, but he did do so with his old pal Steve Somers on WFAN Tuesday.

Here is the audio.

Seinfeld said nice things about the SNY announcing crew, including Kevin Burkhardt's "amazing head of hair."

He expects to do mostly color commentary, but might he do some play by play as well?

"I could to that," he said. "How hard is it to say, 'There's a hit?'"

Seinfeld on Brad Benson's ubiquitous, risque WFAN commercials:

"Someone talk to Brad Benson. Someone sit him down. You're not funny. Just sell the cars.

"We don't need the horrible humor. You're very funny for a football player. Please, please, Brad, if you're within the sound of my voice, sit down.

"Someone needs to talk to this man, really.

"We're just happy that you're selling Hyundais. You're doing very well. Sell the cars, just stay out of my business is what i'm saying."

Seinfeld on Lady Gaga, who recently turned up in Seinfeld's suite at Citi Field (without his knowledge or permission):

"I wish her the best . . . You take one 'a' off that and you've got 'gag.'"

Later, he (jokingly, sort of) called her a "jerk" and "pathetic."

And then this on Gaga: "Wake me when it's over."
