Enough with reality getting into my Sports. Apparently Michael Wilbon suffered a minor heart attack and was rushed to the hospital at 3am Monday morning. I don't know how a whole day went by without anyone finding this out but reports are starting to come in now.
From Sports Media Watch....
Michael Wilbon acclaimed longtime colunmist (sic) at the Washington Post and Pardon the Interruption (PTI) co-host suffered a minor heart attack this morning. It was reported that at 3 a.m. he complained of chest pains to his wife who took him to the hospital. Doctors found minor blockage in his heart and performed an angioplasty, which successfully removed the blockage.I am skeptical that the original story came from a site called "Pass the Word", but apparently Tony Kornheiser mentioned the chest pains during PTI this past evening. Also, friend and editor Roy S. Johnson (Men's Fitness) spoke with the PTI host earlier in this evening and confirmed everything is okay. Best wishes Mr. Wilbon.
Though he is weary he is expected tom be back at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona tomorrow.
Our thoughts and for those who pray - prayers - are with you.
Fan IQ also has a more eerie take on the situation.
Update: Here's the PTI clip in which Tony says he had chest pains. I'm just glad he's doing okay....
