Elvis Presley once invited Harry Caray over to sing songs, eat ribs

MLB Network's "Holy Cow! The Story of Harry Caray" documentary aired on Tuesday night and one of the more interesting tidbits to come out of it was the peculiar bromance between Caray and Elvis Presley.
In the mid-1960s, while Caray was broadcasting Cardinals games on KMOX radio, he was also announcing games for the St. Louis Billikens. And one night, while the Billikens were playing at Memphis State, Presley, already a fan of Caray from listening to Cards games, beckoned the broadcaster to come to Graceland. He sent a car to the field house after the game and the two hung out all night together -- Presley playing music and Caray (hopefully) singing. They even ordered some ribs for dinner ... at 5 a.m.
Oh, to be a fly on that wall ...
