Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon constantly talk about New York and Chicago on Pardon the Interruption. It’s as if they are ashamed of the last three decades that they have spent in Washington, D.C. It’s so weird to hear Kornheiser on PTI say, “I’m a New Yorker” and to hear Wilbon say things like Derrick Rose of Chicago is a hands down choice to win the MVP in the NBA even though others like Dwight Howard, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kevin Durant are equally deserving.
Kornheiser has been in Washington for half his life – 31 years, yet he loves to tell everyone he’s a New Yorker. Both Kornheiser and Wilbon completely ignore the championship history of the Washington Bullets, yet they’re perfectly willing to acknowledge the championship history of the Redskins. Kornheiser is always talking about the 1970s Knicks.
Never once has he mentioned the Bullets. I’m just tired of hearing these Washingtonians constantly talk about their previous hometowns.
