Tony Kornheiser has been suspended from ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” for “some time” because of comments he made about Hannah Storm’s on-camera outfits.

Kornheiser said on his radio show the other day:

“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 47.] “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.”

Kornheiser did apologize, but this is pretty brutal to say about a colleague. So yeah, he is going to be suspended for what is most likely a few days.
