SUSPENDED! Tony Kornheiser of ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption (PTI) has been suspended over recent comments he made on air about his ESPN colleague Hannah Storm.

Apparently Hebrew school didn’t teach Tony how to control that wicked tongue his.

Tony’s best remark:

“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?”

FOXNews has the full story:

ESPN has suspended TV commentator Tony Kornheiser for remarks about fellow ESPN personality Hannah Storm, according to multiple reports Tuesday.

Kornheiser, the popular host of the show “Pardon the Interruption,” is known for making sports figures the subject of his humorous criticism, but in a recent show he aimed his commentary at Storm’s wardrobe.

“Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today,” Kornheiser said. “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.
