Today's L.A. Times column by Bill Plaschke is titled "Contrite Beimel wants to mend shattered hearts" and contains some remorseful quotes from Mr. Slicey himself:
On the effects of that ill-fated brewski: "I have not touched a beer since that night, and I don't plan on drinking alcohol again."
His apology: "I'm sorry to everyone for doing something that was really, really stupid."
His current drink selections? "Diet Coke or Red Bull."
Sounds like Ol' Slipperyhands is really, really, really sorry. I think he'll find fans can eventually forgive—but it's almost impossible to forget. Just ask Bill Buckner.
