Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon make my day!
In last Saturday's mail came the inscribed signed photo above, from the grand panjandrums of ESPN's "Pardon The Interruption," my favorite sports show — no, make it my favorite show period.
I've loved Tony Kornheiser since he was a Washington Post columnist who was so funny I often laughed out loud while reading his stuff over coffee at 5:45 a.m. as I prepared for another day in the anesthesiology trenches.
Wilbon too is a fantastic writer, whose departure along with Kornheiser from the Post left its Sports section a hollowed-out shell, with all manner of wannabe columnists who can't carry these guys' briefcases.
No matter: They're on TV five days a week at 5:30 p.m. (except when Kornheiser's out for one of his innumerable back hair/tattoo removal sessions) and that's something to look forward to.
Oh, yeah, I almost forgot: Why'd they send me the picture?
Full disclosure: I sent each of them a personally inscribed, autographed copy of my latest book:
You will note the inscription reads: "Joseph, Thanks for the book!"
This photo goes on my Shelf of Honor.
