Tony Kornheiser High School Yearbook Photo Confirms: He Was Once Young and Had A Full Head of Hair

Bless your heart Reddit. This is why I visit you daily.

Upon taking an innocent stroll down the Reddit front page tonight I happened upon a headline that read “Look who I found in my mom’s old high school yearbook.” Naturally curious, though not noting at the time that the post was from r/sports, I clicked on the link, which was posted by user SuperJezus (who I have yet to confirm nor deny is Tim Tebow).

And who do I find at said link but everyone’s favorite sports curmudgeon Anthony “Tony” Kornheiser.

Here is the pic:

A number of things stand out at first glance:

First, Kornheiser was once young. This can sometimes be hard to imagine. Now we have a picture confirming it.

Second, Kornheiser once had a full head of dark hair. This too can sometimes be hard to imagine. But, again, now we have a picture confirming it.

Third, it looks like “T.K.” knew what he wanted from the beginning. He wanted to be a lawyer or a journalist. Seeing as how he parlayed a successful journalism career into arguing sports on the radio and now on TV, I’d say he succeeded.

Fourth, Kornheiser hated math and swimming then, and he surely hates them now.

Fifth, he knew early on that he “likes to make others laugh.” While this has worked out well in his newspaper, radio, and PTI gigs, it didn’t go over so well on Monday Night Football. (Dennis Miller would probably tell him not to worry about it too much.)

Sixth, he likes victory parades. That’s just…awesome, though I wonder if he still shares that feeling.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Kornheiser, so stumbling upon this picture was a particularly fun moment of serendipity for me. I believe it also now trumps this glorious picture as the youngest picture of Kornheiser on record:

Now hopefully one day an elementary school photo of Kornheiser will appear. Until then, his high school yearbook will have to do.

As he says: “You’re only young once, but if you play it smart, once is enough!” I’d say Tony Kornheiser played it very smart. He traded youth and hair for a gig almost any of sportsblogging folk, and probably most sports fan, would kill for.

Well done Mr. Tony. You da man.


Update: Our buddy SuperJezus – he’s not Tebow, I checked, but he does appear to be on Twitter (@jessedgoldberg) – just emailed me a couple more photos of Kornheiser. Enjoy.



You know, in that last picture, he does somewhat resemble Tony Reali, no?
