Today at THTWhat to read while trying to get your mind around the fact that a guy who makes more than $25 million a year casually uses the term "loosey-goosey." Yes, the rich are different than you and me:
In closing, I'd just like to say how sorry I am for what happened back in December when I fist came to THT. Back then it was a different culture. It was very loose. I was young. I was stupid. I was naive, and I wanted to prove to everyone that, you know, I was worth, you know — and being one of the greatest bloggers of all time. When I arrived at THT, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me and I needed to perform, and perform at a high level every day. And I did take a banned substance -- Mrs. Shyster doesn't allow Red Bull in the house, but I drank it anyway.
And, you know, for that I’m very sorry and deeply regretful. And although it was the blogging culture back then, you know, I’m just sorry. I’m sorry for that time. I’m sorry to reader. It wasn’t until then that I ever thought about energy drinks of any kind.

I find snark to be the strongest of all your writing modes.

I demand you retroactively add an asterisk to the title of every column you wrote while using said banned substance.
Hey, at least you weren’t on adderall.

What percentage of A-roid’s Gammons interview was written by his speechwriter?

Weren’t the Yanks doing better during the loosey-goosey time then they’re doing under the tighty-whitey (Girardi) time?

Lame apology. I’d prefer you be more genuine next time…maybe you just need some practice.

Also… good luck getting into the BBWAA with that stain on your resume.
