Tony Kornheiser Is Into "Leather"

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Remember earlier this week, when we learned that Chris Berman was such a skilled swordsman? Well, at the time, we said that the first ESPN anchor to use Berman's apparent signature pickup line, "You're with me, leather," as a catchphrase for a great defensive play would officially become our personal hero.


Well, we should have known: Kornheiser. Figures.

On his radio show this morning, Kornheiser, who of course will be on "Monday Night Football" this fall if he doesn't manage to piss off everyone in Bristol to the point that somebody shoots him, joked that his touchdown call should be, "You're with me, leather."


Oh, man, can we not wait until Kornheiser throws it back to the studio for halftime this year. The production meetings for "MNF" are just gonna rule.

(You can catch a rebroadcast of the show right here. We're told the reference should show up sometime between 12:30 and 1 p.m. ET. )
