    PK - living large and as usual showing respect for the little people:



    d. Coffeenerdness: The best thing about working at NBC? Simple. At 3 in the afternoon Sunday, when we all are yelling at the TV at one of the nine games we're watching, one of the staffers says, "Anyone want anything from Starbucks?'' I shoot up like I was in the bottom of a loaded cannon. "Triple grande hazelnut latte!'' I say. See how simple my life is?

    Preach it, Boom.

    The little courtesies are fast fading from our everyday life.

    And we are poorer for it.

    Maybe the unappreciated staffer took a leak in PK's latte on the way back to studio.

    In the early stages of NFL on NBC Pete is acting like he has never been in the end zone before.

    His iron worker father has to be just spinning in his grave seeing Pete ordering a staffer to go get him a latte and not saying please and thank you.

    Or offering to pay.

    I doubt that the staffer is paying $5.25 out of his own pocket to feed PK's habit.

    True. But Pete's not paying to feed his own habit either.

    Jeebus, Peter.
    Do you think he has any idea how truly awful that makes him sound?

    No, but since he lurks here on occasion, he probably does now..

    Now that he's had gastric bypass surgery, PK's back on the latte chronic.

    Its really stunning to me that King tries to pass himself off as a man of the people - yet continues show show us countless examples of him being just the opposit.


    Lets get a list going - The I'm Peter King and Your Not Hall of Shame;

    - 10 year old boy he takes Tejada foul ball from

    - security guard at A's spring training

    - US Air gate agent in southbend

    - SI staffer at Super Bowl Party - Don't you know who I am

    - NBC staffer

    He is obviously tone deaf to the way he comes across- even with all the help we have provided here at SJ

    When he begins a sentence: "I was driving the other day and my cell phone rang. I answered it. "Hi Peter," said the voice on the other end, "this is John Lynch/Brett Favre/Bill Cowher...." etc.
