Sports Hair of the Week

Good night, Canada! Anthony Irwin "Tony" Kornheiser, is this week's Hair of the Week winner. Most known for his show Pardon the Interruption (PTI) on ESPN with co-host Michael Wilbon, Kornheiser is also a sportswriter employed by the Washington Post, hosts a radio show, and is a color guy for ESPN's Monday Night Football alongside Ron "Jaws" Jaworski and Mike Tirico (sorry, no nickname for Tirico). Kornheiser is a proud Jew and Long Island native, hailing from Lynbrook where he was the only child of Ira and Estelle Kornheiser. Tony has an ongoing feud with Jay Mariotti of the Chicago Sun-Times dating back to 2004 when Kornheiser's nationally syndicated radio show was replaced in the Chicago area with Mariotti's new radio show. Kornheiser has also stated on the ESPN show Sports Reporters that he would be more than pleased if Mariotti happened to be hit by a bus. Upon losing his hair at a very young age, Kornheiser just couldn't let go. To this day, he is completely bald on top, but prefers to create the illusion that he has a full head of hair by sweeping a thin strip of hair from the side across the top of his head. Sports fans around the country have been waiting for someone in ESPN's makeup dept. to just snip that rat off his head when he's not looking and do the whole world a favor!

Yo big nasty, Tony K was just bought out by the Washington Post, so he is a newspaper man no longer. Not that this minor correction should detract from his primetime combover.
