why does kornheiser wave a canadian flag

Tony Kornheiser (l) always has a special sign-off for his friends in Canada. Fans who watch Pardon the Interruption have likely noticed that Tony Kornheiser ends each show by waving a Maple Leaf Canadian flag. б
He also sometimes says Goodnight, Canada. But why? With on Sunday (July 1), itБs an opportune time to answer this burning question about one of ESPNБs most popular shows. When PTI signs off just before 6 p. m. ET, viewers in Canada do not get the additional segment with Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon that airs on the SportsCenter edition that follows because a different program airs north of the border. БIt has to be at least seven or eight years now since I started doing this,Б says Kornheiser.


PTI Бs longtime associate director Bonnie Berko told Kornheiser about the SportsCenter segment not airing in Canada. So, he grabbed the flag and started waving it at the end of the show. It became a farewell to the viewers who wouldnБt see him again until the next dayБs show. БI get asked about it routinely by as many Americans as Canadians,Б adds Kornheiser. БI always tell people that I m so popular in Canada, I could get lucky in Nova Scotia. Canadians really seem to like it. Б And now you know why. Note: SportsCenter anchor and ESPN Radio host will make his first appearance as a guest co-host of Pardon the Interruption on Friday (5:30 p. m.


ET, ESPN). Van Pelt, a native of the Washington, D. C. , area, will be in-studio with Wilbon from the showБs studio location at the ABC News Bureau in the NationБs Capital. Since PTI debuted in 2001, there have been 30 different* guest hosts. Van Pelt is No. 31. БAs friends of Tony and Michael, I m honored to sit in the chair and the hope is to not be any great shame to the show, Van Pelt said. Also, as friends of Tony and Michael, I m curious how it took 10 years and 30 other people before they got to my name on the list.


But who s counting? Б *Amaze your friends with your knowledge of this list of those fortunate enough to have filled in as a PTI co-host: JA Adande, David Aldridge, Skip Bayless, Jay Bilas, Kevin Blackistone, Norman Chad, Tim Cowlishaw, David DuPree, Josh Elliott, Mike Golic, Max Kellerman, Sally Jenkins, Tim Kurkjian, Dan LeBatard, Jackie MacMullan, Jay Mariotti, Patrick McEnroe, Bill Plaschke, Rick Reilly, Bob Ryan, Dan Shaughnessy, TJ Simers, Bill Simmons, Michael Smith, Stephen A. Smith, Michele Tafoya, Mike Tirico, Bob Valvano, Scott Van Pelt, Jason Whitlock and Ralph Wiley. i think he s on holiday. some commentators take holiday trips over the summer time. dissimilar ESPN personalities fill in for Kornheiser and Michael. i think he s on holiday. some commentators take holiday trips over the summer time. dissimilar ESPN personalities fill in for Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon at times. dissimilar personalities fill in for different television hosts and radio hosts.


It in basic terms relies upon on whilst the guy takes a holiday. It does look that television and radio hosts take dissimilar holiday trips. i m hoping he does not have wellbeing issues. i like listening to him. he s humorous and nicely spoken.
