In this world of nonstop, streaming information and internet commentary, we're all bound to say something we come to regret once in a while.
Reporter Andy Martino, who covers the Mets for the New York Daily News, made a mistake that's going to become really uncomfortable for him this spring in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Surveying the rumors and buzz swirling around the first day of the Winter Meetings, Martino wrote in his Mets blog on December 6 that "if the Phillies sign Cliff Lee, I'll cover spring training in a Speedo."
The story earned him a mention as one of the Worst Persons in the World on Keith Olbermann's show, and he'll be on CNN tomorrow. Martino says he'll honor the bet -- sort of. "I am grateful for one thing above all else: I didn't say I'd cover spring training in only in a Speedo, without any clothing to cover it."
