Okay, I know this is a little late as Festivus (23rd) is over but what would you rather get for a Festivus gift?

haha, just to make sure; festivus is only a official holiday in the world of seinfeld right????

Actually Festivus is an actual holiday for some, it was around before Seinfeld. A Google search brings some information on the subject, it's been around a while.

You're right! It's been around since the 60s, http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/19/fashion/19FEST.html

The inventor is the father of one of the seinfeld writers.

I voted for the Bruline because Newman also has a Bruline and He's fantastic.

And we all know that Melos is not the real man so who would trust his racquet choice.

Haha, that was a good episode.

I wonder if those were real tennis balls fired at Kramer.

When Jerry "turned it on" on Melos, his serve looked horrendous!

From seinfeldscripts.com:

[Tennis Club]

Jerry and Milos are playing at the other tennis club. They are watched by a
small number of people, including Patty. Milos delivers a weak underarm
serve, and Jerry makes no effort to return it, merely wafting his racquet
vaguely in the direction of the ball.

JERRY: Too good.

MILOS: (triumphant shout) Another game for Milos!! Hahaha!

Milos walks to the net to meet Jerry.

JERRY: You're on fire today.

MILOS: (shouting over) Hey Patty. look at this guy. He's awful!

Patty blows Milos a kiss.

MILOS: (milking it) He's not a man, this Jerry. He's not even married like I
am. (laughs) Huhuhuhu.

JERRY: (quietly) Hey, uh, Milos, I don't mind rolling over here, but could
you lighten up on the 'not a man' stuff?

MILOS: (shouting) Hey everybody, look! The little chicken girl wants me to
ease up. He can't handle this, so he cries like a woman! (laughs evilly)

Milos strides away to continue the game, leaving Jerry looking rueful.

MILOS: (pointing and shouting) Look at the big baby! (laughter) Hehaha. (to
Jerry) Hey, big baby, are you wetting yourself? Maybe it is time for you to
be changed. (laughter) Hahah.

Patty laughs too, with the few other spectators. Jerry looks angry at this
constant derision.

JERRY: (quietly) I told you to cut it out.

Jerry delivers a fierce serve which beats Milos, and almost hits him in the

MILOS: (quietly, to Jerry) Hey, c'mon, what're you doing? (to his audience)
Huhuh. The baby got lucky on that one! Hahah.

Jerry walks back to deliver another serve. Kramer enters and looks around for
someone. On another court, Shellbach is facing an automatic serving machine.

KRAMER: (waving) Shellbach.

Shellbach waves vaguely back to Kramer, who has begun to walk round the room
to get to him.

Meanwhile, Jerry returns a shot to Milos, with some venom. Milos stretches
desperately to try and reach it, but loses his grip on his racquet. The
racquet arcs across the hall, watched by Patty, and then spotted by Kramer.

KRAMER: Racquet.

The racquet plummets from the air and strikes the guy who is operating the
automatic serving machine for Shellbach. The guy is knocked unconscious and,
as he falls, he pushes against the machine, turning it to point at Kramer.
Kramer stands transfixed, as it continues to launch balls at him. Several
balls in rapid succession strike him in the head, until he slumps,
unconscious, to the floor.
