    Don't make fun of Hannah Storm on your radio show ... it will cost you some TV time!

    Putting aside the fact that Hannah's wardrobe SCREAMS for attention--and deserves all the negative remarks, I could talk about this all day--I wonder if Tony would have been suspended by ESPN if Hannah worked for a different network.

    Sounds like stupid stuff that TK said.

    But I don't get it with these broadcast operations and their suspensions. What does that accomplish? Embarrassment to the offending party? It has to be that, because once you pay someone an exorbitant amount of money, forcing them to take a few unpaid days off -- furlough! -- isn't any sort of hardship or real penalty.

    Pay me seven figures and hell, I'll be pulling for a six-month long suspension every year.

    I agree with Tony. For me, it was seeing the skirt above the knees. It just looks out of place.

    I posted about this over a year ago. You look at her, and it looks like Entertainment Tonight. If that is what ESPN wants, then Mazel Tov.

    I remember Hannah from her CNN Days (I used to love staying up late for the Play of the Day on summer evenings). Anyway, Hannah once said that someone "became the first 20-game winner in the majors, upping his record to 18-6." or something like that. Some gaffes stick with you.

    The offending outfit:

    You know, when a MAN wears a Catholic school plaid skirt and red go-go boots, they say he's just being assertive ...

    Well, Kornheiser was just trying to give ESPN what it wanted: edgy, entertainment-based commentary. I've heard more ridiculous things on TV news.

    Be careful Hannah Storm outfit threads get locked on SJ. She must have a strong battery of attorney's making threats when anything bad is sad about her.

    Suspended for being an unfunny tool?

    As a regular podcast listener, I can tell you that he opens a majority of shows with a criticism of Hoda Kotb's outfits. What he said about Hannah Storm was tame and it is stupid of ESPN to react like this.

    You must not be watching the same Tony as the rest of us. In my opinion, he and Wilbon pair up for the only show worth watching on ESPN.

    And her skirt was too short, she looks like a middle-aged hooker.
