Mike Lupica and Tony Kornheiser: Two of a kind?
Mike Lupica can't get past security at the All-Star Game and Tony Kornheiser can't get a stinkin' decent meal. Kornheiser, who wanted shellfish and wanted it now, supposedly said: "I want what I want when I want it." He also admitted to being too famous to be eating at this particular restaurant. Do you know who these guys are, people. Come on.
WHAT APPEARS TO BE A CORRECTION: Ryan Cormier of the The News Journal of Wilmington has backed off his story about Kornheiser. Cormier now says it may have been Kornheiser's wife who said he may be too famous for this place. She meant that he might get too much attention from customers. Cormier also says: "I no longer have any confidence that he said, 'I want what I want when I want it.' Maybe the people who saw this exchange were Kornheiser haters, who knows." Cormier ends his clarification/correction with: "Either way, I wasn't there so I can't help clear these muddy waters. And since I actually enjoy Kornheiser's work, I think we should give him the benefit of the doubt and not assume he was being a crabby jackass on his 60th birthday."
