Jerry gets Super Bowl tickets but cant use them because of obligations to attend a friend's wedding. He gives them to Tim Whatley and gets a label maker in return. Elaine is convinced that the label maker is the exact same one that she gave him a week before. Jerry then accuses Whatley of "re-gifting" the label maker. George, learns that his girlfriend has a male roommate and gets weirded out by the concept, but loves the male roommate's possessions which include a velvet couch. The couple learns that the wedding is on the same day as the Super Bowl and then calls the wedding completely off because of it, and Jerry goes in search of getting his tickets back. But then Jerry learns that Whatley gave one of his tickets to Newman. Meanwhile, Kramer and Newman engage in a heated game of Risk. Written by
Did You Know?
George claims he would drape himself in velvet if it were socially acceptable. In the later episode Seinfeld: The Doodle
(1995), he dons a velvet suit. See more
After Bonnie's male room mate moves out, George arrives at the apartment with the re-gifted label maker. He realizes that all the furniture, etc. belonged to the room mate, and rants about the absence of the velvet couch. Before the rant he wasn't holding anything, but the next camera cut shows him holding a portable TV, as if he had been holding it the whole time. The portable TV, it turns out, belonged to the room mate, and was "lost in the mail" (because all of the room mate's possessions had been boxed and labeled with the label maker's faulty adhesive). Newman shows up with the portable TV at the super bowl (presumably after harvesting it from the Postal System's "lost" and found). See more

Oh, it's Risk, it's a game of world domination being played by two guys who can barely run their own lives.
