Well, if anybody should be doing a show about the Dodgers, it's King. After all, he was best friends with Sandy Koufax growing up.

Or was he?

Finkel contacts Koufax, who points out a few discrepancies in the story. For one, Koufax says he's never been to New Haven. Finkel continues:
Furthermore, [Koufax] says, he and Larry King have never been friends.
In fact, he says, even though they grew up in the same neighborhood, he didn't get to know King until long after both had left Brooklyn behind. King was on the radio by the time they met, and the Carvel story had already become a part of his life.


This is what I think of whenever I think about King (which must be at least 3-4 times a week) and I think this story is hilarious.

When he filled in for Olberman it was one of the best sports interview shows I have ever seen.  I hope this is available for online viewing.

/The fact that he co-owned a race horse with Earl Weaver makes me smile.

Larry King is older than Joan Rivers' sex life. There's a possibility he knew Moses.

What? Was Vin Scully too busy being awesome to do this?

That joke was so low, it almost hit Larry's testicles.

That was hyperbole. It's probably not more than 2 in reality.

Anyone commented yet on Piers Morgan's show being canned?
