Wilbon on Kornheiser-Storm: Michael Wilbon just appeared on the Dan Patrick Show to discuss the Kornheiser-Storm suspension contoversy: “Wilbon claimed ‘plausible deniability’ about the whole situation: ‘As you know, I’ve never been part of the Bristol culture. I don’t know how these things work. I don’t know what is affiliated.'”‘ But Wilbon did say he hopes this story passes soon. “I feel bad about the whole thing,” Wilbon said. “Hopefully he’ll be back in the seat.” Wilbon was introduced as a Washington Post columnist and apparently did not get ESPN’s consent to make the appearance. “You know what they say … If you’re afraid, get a dog.” [Dan Patrick Show blog]
