I’ve been a fan of David Letterman for years and it’s also been years since I’ve been to New York City. I figure at this point in my life, going to the “Late Show,” which is taped in NYC, to see good old Dave is more or less unlikely for me. Hey, I don’t stay up at night worrying about it. You know, I can always watch him on the old teevee or YouTube.
Last week, my son was on a business trip close to New York, and on Friday, he made a trip to Manhattan and took a walk down Broadway. He came across the Ed Sullivan Theater where Dave does his show. My son thought of his old man.
With the camera on his cell phone, he took a picture of the “Late Show” marquee, and then went into Rupert Jee’s Hello Deli.
We all know Rupert, right? Well there he was for my son, all smiles (well, maybe not).
Look at those T-shirts surrounding Rupert. My son brought me back a “Late Show with David Letterman” T-shirt from Manhattan. I was thrilled and I’m sure my son could tell.
This shirt may be as close to the “Late Show” as I’ll ever get, but that’s OK. A little bit of New York City will be with me today as I walk around Covington, Kentucky in my “Late Show” T-shirt. There may actually be a spring in my step.
