What Do Bagels and Dodgers Have in Common?

Larry King!

The prospective Los Angeles Dodgers ownership group led by sports lawyer Dennis Gilbert (a Jew) has a new member, and it is Larry King (who, we hear, is also Jewish). Attentive Scroll readers might recall that another of King’s business ventures is the Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Company, whose “water treatment technology” makes H20 anywhere into the stuff that comes out of faucets east of the East River, so that authentic and delicious bagels can be made mobilely.

So the question is: does King want to do to the team what he does to bagels, and bring the Brooklyn spirit to L.A.? Or does he want to bring the Dodgers back to Brooklyn? Remember your roots, King!

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

we want to schedule a grand opening event at the Miami Beach Brooklyn Water Bagel shop….do you think you can coherse Larry King into coming here for this?
