NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Life imitated art at the Stanley Cup playoffs as the actor who played Puddy on the TV sitcom “Seinfeld” showed up at the game with his face painted as a New Jersey Devils fan.
Patrick Warburton is a Devils fan and in a 1995 episode of the hit show he appeared with his face painted in red and green.
The team posted a video of Warburton on Wednesday cheering to the crowd at Newark’s Prudential Center that “we’re the Devils!” The 53-year-old stripped off his shirt to reveal a letter “D” on his chest.
Warburton’s enthusiasm wasn’t enough. New Jersey lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1, giving Tampa Bay a 3-1 lead in the playoff series.
