ESPN Suspends Tony Kornheiser For Saying Hannah Storm Dresses Like A Whore


SunSentinel.com  Tony Kornheiser is the smartest guy in the class. He’s done it all at the highest levels. Writing. Radio. TV. And part of his schtick is to go into places and sarcastically tweak people in a manner others don’t or aren’t talented enough to do. You watch him on Pardon The Interruption, you know that.  So what is ESPN doing in suspending him (as the biglead.com reported) for calling out Hannah Storm on her constant wardrobe malfunction? Are they nuts? Anyone who has watched her ESPN SportsCenter gigs has thought something close to what he’s said, if not used the term “sausage casing.” Remember, she’s 47 (which is why I don’t wear red boots anymore). 

Here’s what Kornheiser said last week: “Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today. She’s 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. She’s got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body. I know she’s very good, and I’m not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, So I won’t. But Hannah Storm, Come on now! Stop! What are you doing? She’s what I would call a Holden Caulfield fantasy at this point.”

 

I mean…he’s not wrong.  Hannah Storm is just another in the long line of middle-aged women who try WAY too hard to hold onto their youth.  I mean this outfit is pretty fucking gross…it doesn’t make her look hot, it makes her look desperate.  This is pretty much par for the course for ESPN at this point.  They are about as relevent as the geriatrics they employ.  They start their day with a morning show that contains some of the douchiest tv personalities you can find, Skip Bayless?  Really?  Then they fill up the rest of the day until Around The Horn and PTI with script reading zeroes who know nothing about sports except what’s on their teleprompters.  I don’t know many people who actually still watch ESPN anymore, most have moved on to the NFL network or NBA tv or MLB network or the NHL network.  ESPN used to be the only place you could get sports 24 hours a day, now they are the worst option available.  Hannah Storm is what they think the people want to see, when in reality I’d rather watch The Dan Patrick show on the 101 network.  A show run by four geeky looking dudes sitting in chairs.

    I really can’t understand certain parts of this post, but I assume I just need to learn a bit more regarding this, because it definitely sounds interesting and kind of though-proviking! By the way, how did you first get involved with this?
