Larry King's Temper Rears Its Ugly Shoulder Blades

CNN's venerable talk show host Larry King may not have any trouble conversing with some of the world's most famous people or constructing a brilliant turn-of-phrase, but he does have some trouble controlling himself when umpires start ruining his young son's Little League games.

The New York Observer is reporting that the 74-year-old King , who serves as a volunteer coach of his son's Beverly Hills Little League team, got into a shouting match with an ump on March 10th and was asked to spend the rest of the game watching it from the outfield.

One witness disagress with that re-telling, saying that the talk show Muppet was merely contesting the call, but wasn't at any point "banished."

At this time, King is still a volunteer coach, and only had this to say in response:

"That Teri Garr's one great little actress."

(Okay, he hasn't responded at all.)
