Second-Ever LBW 'Costanza Award' Goes to Former Softball Coach

And the second-ever LBW 'Costanza Award' Goes to ... the former Roosevelt High School softball coach!


Seinfeld, Season 3, episode 12 ("The Red Dot"):

Mr. Lippman: It's come to my attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office. Is that correct?
George Costanza: Who said that?
Mr. Lippman: She did.
George Costanza: [pause] Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon ... you know, cause I've worked in a lot of offices, and I tell you, people do that all the time.
Mr. Lippman: You're fired!
George Costanza: Well, you didn't have to say it like that.


You may recall that LBW's first-ever "Costanza Award" went out to former executives of a Munich Re subsidiary who rewarded 100 of the company's top-performing insurance agents by hosting a party and bringing in 20 prostitutes. It has been a while since that last Costanza award, so let's not delay the latest installment of this award, which goes out to Troy Hennum, the now-former softball coach at Roosevelt High School in Seattle, Wash.

Just days into his new job as softball coach, The Seattle Times reports, the coach sent members of his team "out on an unusual scavenger hunt. The mission: take photos of 'cute girls' and bring them back, with telephone numbers, for his perusal." One 21-year-old woman working at a sporting-goods store told the Times that a "group of giggling girls approached, explaining their mission. Later that day, the 21-year-old began receiving text messages from Hennum."

It is unclear if the ensuing discussion between the coach and the administration at Roosevelt High School that led to the coach being placed on unpaid leave just six days into his new job went exactly like this Seinfeld scene ("Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? ... you know, cause I've worked in a lot of offices. ...), but I'm betting it did.
