I absolutely LOVED Bob Costas’ interview with Billy Crystal on the MLB Network. (Yes, I know Costas also interviewed Sandusky about the Penn State mess on NBC, but I’m not going there.) What a fun show. Between the clips of the movie “61” and Crystal’s stories about Mantle, Jeter and Yogi, there was also little seen footage of Johnny Carson on the mound at Yankee Stadium and Crystal doing a dead-on impersonation of Phil Rizzuto in the broadcast booth.
And then there was this “SNL” skit.
I cracked up every time Crystal called Steinbrenner Jorge.
I hope the interview gets replayed so everybody can watch it. It really put a smile on my face, and, given the news lately, that was much appreciated.
