Bramlage Coliseum (34). Who plays there: Kansas State. Opened: 1988. Capacity: 13,344. Aside from the octagonal shape and (at least currently) loud student section, this is a clunky building bereft of charm. Especially when compared with a couple of nice arenas built around the same time (see: Cincinnati and Michigan State).
ESPN 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.
Kornheiser says he called Storm to apologize: 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.
Kornheiser announced the suspension on his Washington D.C. radio show Tuesday morning, calling his remarks about Storm intemperate and stupid.
"As the result of this, I have been sent to the sidelines of PTI for a while," Kornheiser said.
In a written release, ESPN called Kornheiser's comments inappropriate.
"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?"
Kornheiser said he had called Storm to apologize for the remarks. According to The Washington Post's Web site, last week he told radio listeners "no one should take anything I say about them personally, because I am a troll."
On his radio show Tuesday, Kornheiser said, "If you put a live microphone in front of somebody, eventually that person will say something wrong. This was one of the times I said something wrong."
Storm declined to comment, ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said.
