"I apologize. The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I said something that I shouldn't have said. I was frustrated and I don't mean no disrespect to anybody. I just got caught up."

--NBA player Joakim Noah, who's sorry for saying 'something,' which might have been a homophobic slur

I gave Kobe a pass, once he'd apologized, and his first apology wasn't much more worthwhile than Noah's. Everybody's entitled to one really stupid and evil crack, as long as they learn from the screw-up and never repeat it. Let's see if Noah can search that Cro-Magnon head of his and come up with a more meaningful and honest apology than this crap. If he can, I say we should let him slide this once. If he can't--or if he ever says something awful like this again--we should flood David Stern's office with misery and cost this asshole some serious cash and a suspension.
