Greenberg says he’s a word-garbler! But he’s not above apologizing. Check out the ESPN host’s attempt at humble pie after the jump.
I just came home from the Knicks game and found out about the mess that was created by my garbling a sentence on our show this morning; I apologize for not addressing it sooner.
And I’m sorry that my talking too fast – and slurring my words – might have given people who don’t know our show the wrong impression about us, and about me.
I feel horrible about that, because nothing could be further away from who I am and what our show is about.
I would never say anything like that, not in public, or in private, or in the silence of my own mind, and neither would anyone associated with our show, and I’m very sorry that my stumble this morning gave so many people the opposite impression.
Now that Greenberg’s apologized, is this going to be something the public will quickly forget or will his turn of words haunt him for the rest of his career?
