Kissing Suzy Kolber, probably the most significant sports blog on blogspot, has a mildly amusing mock segment on the Tony Kornheiser Show. My favorite part is their Feinstein interview.
Tony: Who do we have on the phone next. Is it you, Junior?
John Feinstein: Hey, Tony. Hey, do you know if I left a pair of brown suede gloves at your house the other night?
Tony: Hmm. I don’t recall seeing them.
John Feinstein: I think I left them on the table in entranceway. They were very simple brown suede gloves. Did you see them?
Tony: Oh, I think I may have! How do you want (clears throat) to arrange for picking them up?
John Feinstein: Well, if you could simply leave them by the door, somewhat off to the side, perhaps obscured by a bush, that would be fabulous. Oh, and did your wife get the cassoulet recipe from my wife?
Tony: I believe she did.
John Feinstein: Great, great. Did you still need help moving that desk at your house?
Tony: Well, let me explain what happened with the desk. I, (clears throat) as you know, CANNOT fix anything.
(everyone in the studio laughs for no reason)
Tony: Can’t fix anything at all. Anyway, (clears throat) we have this lovely desk that my wife found at a consignment shop. Very gorgeous, hand-crafted. Anyway, we had to move it (clears throat) so that the contractors could install the toilet. So anyway…
(cut to 90 minutes later)
Tony: …so the desk can’t be moved. Are we still on the air? You know, (clears throat) I completely forgot we were talking to some sort of audience. Anything else you want to add, Junior?
John Feinstein: Buy my new book, “Living on the Black”. I know Coach K. George Bush is a prick. I have several extremely liberal viewpoints. Army-Navy is an unmatched tradition in sports. Random golf anecdote. I wish Georgetown would play in my charity basketball tourney, but John Thompson is a dick. Bob Knight is an asshole. We need to get rid of guns in this country. Did you know I write books for children too? I think Gary Williams is exasperated about something.
Tony: Okay, thank you, Junior!
John Feinstein: I really wish you’d stop calling me that. It’s fucking annoying.
