TV commentator Tony Kornheiser has been suspended for three days by ESPN because of nasty and unpleasant remarks about his colleague Hannah Storm, according to various reports yesterday.

TV host Kornheiser is popularly known for his show “Pardon the Interruption,” in which he makes humorous criticism about popular sports figures. But recently, his subject became his fellow ESPN personality and not the usual sports figures. He hits annotation and remarks at Storm’s wardrobe.

He humorously said that Hannah Storm was in a horrifying, horrifying outfit because she got on red go-go boots and a catholic school plaid skirt, way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now. He even added that Storm got on her typically very, very tight shirt and she looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body. Kornheiser sarcastically praises Storm by saying she’s very good and is not supposed to be critical of ESPN people. “Come on now! Stop! What are you doing?”-he plead.

Kornheiser already made a public apology through radio saying he apologize, unequivocally because of being sarcastic and subversive. He admits that he has no right to insult what anybody looks like or what anybody wears. The 61-year-old Kornheiser — a former columnist for the Washington Pos t and broadcaster for ESPN’s Monday Night Football telecasts — has hosted PTI since 2001.

    I dare say almost no one among the commentators in this discussion have actually watched PTI or only rarely. Tony will make sarcastic comment on any thing. Have you ever listened to his remarks about some of the substitutes co-hosts? I have not seen any complaints about those remarks. If you were a PTL fan, you would know how Tony might be the most gracious and forgiving commentator (other than Wilbon) of miscues and miss-behavior of both male and female athletes. No just watch two weeks of PTI and this controversy will disappear.
