Fresh off his ESPN double secret probation for mocking Hannah Storm's 1960s-inspired go-go outfits, Tony Kornheiser is at it again; letting his mouth lead him where he probably shouldn't go.
"When three or four of these people start riding abreast, I swear to you, it's all you can do to not run them down! Like Wile E. Coyote! Run 'em over! Get the hell out of my way!", some people took it the wrong way.
Like, for one, Lance Armstrong. From his Twitter account:
Listening to Tony Kornheiser's comments/rant on ESPN radio re: cyclists. Disgusting, ignorant, foolish. What a complete f-ing idiot.
And this all happens the same day we have four cyclists killed by a frikn tractor here in Belgium. It happened in Flanders in Bochholt, which is near Tongeren, so what I can gather with my limited Dutch from this news story is he was transporting those bales of hay you see in the picture and had limited visibility. He drove right over a pack of ten cyclists, killing four of them. There is video in French below the pictures.
