Nearly unrecognizable Letterman talks retirement at IndyCar finale

When former television icon David Letterman walked onto the starting grid at Sonoma Raceway for Sunday's Go Pro Grand Prix of Sonoma, he was nearly unrecognizable from the man millions watched on television every night for 33 years before he retired this past May. Letterman looked like Santa Claus with a long, white beard. As he stood next to Graham Rahal's Honda IndyCar on the starting...

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) This kind of list makes David Letterman sick to his stomach and question his love of auto racing.

Top Ten Ways for the Tribe to Turn Around Its 2015

In case you missed it earlier this week, the long late night run of television legend David Letterman came to an end. After 33 years of providing a friend and a familiar voice to insomniacs across the nation in the witching hours, the 68-year-old comedian retired his pencil tapping, his shattering of glass, the stupid pet tricks and stupid human tricks, “Will it Float”, and a...

#TBT: Pacers coach Vogel was on David Letterman in 1986

Saying Good-Bye To David Letterman

It’s 1 a.m., just after David Letterman said his final good-bye to television some 33 years after he began his run on the late-night talk show circuit and sadness is prevalent. I’m most definitely a Generation X member, someone who was a child when Letterman’s star was shining the brightest, when he was on after the incomparable Johnny Carson — too late for me to enjoy....

With David Letterman Gone, Who In Sports Could Shine In Late Night?

David Letterman retired last night, but not before he and his crack staff in the home office got one more sports reference into Late Show lore. Peyton Manning, clearly one of Dave’s favorite athletes ever if you go by the reaction given during Manning’s cameo in the show’s final Top Ten list, got to crack wise at the late night legend before the show came to a wonderfully produced...

Watch: Why Foo Fighters and ‘Everlong’ were perfect for David Letterman’s final show

Foo Fighters seemed like a curious musical guest for David Letterman’s final show Wednesday night. Not to say that the 68-year-old talk show host can’t like a modern act, but you might have figured an older group — perhaps one that endured and was a recurring guest over Letterman’s 33-year run on TV — would be the choice. That’s probably a silly presumption. Before Letterman...

David Letterman once sent a telegram to ESPN praising America’s Cup coverage

Let’s go into Mr. Peabody’s Wayback Machine and turn the dial to “1987” to a simpler time in television. ESPN was still hoping to gain a foothold with fans. It got the rights to the America’s Cup sailing races. Now this was four years after the U.S. lost the Cup in Newport, RI. It marked the first time dating back to 1851 that the Cup went to another country. With ESPN...

David Letterman and the End of The Late Night Talk Show

I remember the first time I saw David Letterman on television. It was the mid-1980’s, I was on vacation and my aunt and uncle had just gotten a VCR. My uncle occasionally watched Letterman, so we secretly timer-taped a show (an ordeal at the time) and put it on the next afternoon as a surprise treat. I remember his reaction distinctly. He had been talking Letterman up. When...
