ESPN Journalist Sports Binghamton Rumble Ponies Jersey On National Television
If you are a fan of ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" (PTI), then you know that one of the co-hosts is Tony Kornheiser. He's been there since it's inception in 2001 and it's still one of the highest (if not the highest) rated program on the Worldwide Leader in Sports.
Then you would also know that he is a graduate of Binghamton University and promotes the school all the time. However on August 3, he had a shout-out to a different Binghamton team... the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
A couple of fans sent Kornheiser a Binghamton Rumble Ponies jersey and he wore it on PTI. Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham tweeted out the video and you'll LOVE what Kornheiser's co-host Michael Wilbon had to say.
PTI Spoiler Alert: It includes about a Max Scherzer reference.
I think that makes him the third most famous person to wear a Binghamton Rumble Ponies jersey behind Tim Tebow and Max Scherzer. Your opinion may differ and that's okay.
It's no secret that Tony Kornheiser is a Binghamton University alum but did you know that he almost never graduated from the school? We found out this nugget of knowledge during his 2017 Commencement Speech at Binghamton University.
Tony Kornheiser's Time As A Student At Binghamton University
It was May 21, 2017 and he gave his speech wearing a Binghamton University baseball cap. During the speech, he told the audience that he needed a second science course in order to graduate.
Science was not easy for him and he needed a 65 on his final Biology for Non-Science Majors class. As you can guess it ended well but you can see how he finally did it here.
Tony Kornheiser is just one of many celebrity's that have graced the campus of Binghamton University. See how many other Binghamton University and Binghamton residents that you can recognize below.
