Tony Stewart vs. ESPN: It Could Be A Long TV Season
NOTE: The Daly Planet has received several emails about the specifics of this incident, and they are very different. If you have any information about this issue, or the video, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Until the time where we receive the actual footage, or a complete description, we are deleting this story.
If you could help us with the specific ESPN show that this occurred on, or how this issue was raised, we certainly would appreciate it. What we do know, is that Tony Stewart is upset with something said on national TV about him. We also know the network in question is ESPN. The show appears to be either Pardon The Interruption or Around The Horn, both ESPN's daily afternoon talk shows.
The content is a joking remark Tony made after Chicagoland where he said he would spend the next week after winning "drinking a case of beer." Apparently, that was a joke to many, but not someone at ESPN who has a national platform to condemn Tony for being a "bad role model."
Perhaps, this same person could take a trip to the Victory Junction Gang Camp and ask around about Tony Stewart. That might just help them get a better perspective.
If the look he gave Dave Burns at Indy before he purposefully dropped the "BS bomb" live on ESPN is any indication, it just might be a long season for the network in Tony's world.
