ESPN Suspends Kornheiser Two Weeks for Comment About Hannah Storm’s "Catholic-School" Outfit

Sports loudmouth Tony Kornheiser’s days as a fashion commentator appear to be over. The big boys at ESPN have decided that the way he made fun of Hannah Storm’s recent outfit (didn’t this happen, like, two weeks ago?) on his radio show was not appropriate and decided to make an example of him. Good thing he didn’t point out the disaster that Chris Berman’s comb-over has become. (It . . . could . . . go . . . all . . . the . . . way . . . to the other side of his head,) Somebody woulda gotten whacked for that, if ya know what we me.

At right, the Storm outfit that caused, well, a minor media storm. Does kind of look like a Catholic school-girl thing to us, but we’re not complaining. Just looking at it has a checking over our shoulders for a nun with a ruler!

ESPN has suspended host Tony Kornheiser from his television talk show “Pardon the Interruption” for two weeks for comments he made on the radio last week about “SportsCenter” anchor Hannah Storm’s clothing.  “Hurtful and personal comments such as these are not acceptable and have significant consequences,” said John Skipper, ESPN vice president for content. 

Kornheiser, 61, described an outfit Storm, 47, was wearing at ESPN last week as “horrifying.” According to The Washington Post’s Web site, Kornheiser’s radio comments included:

“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 looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body … Come on now! Stop! What are you doing?”
