Doing The Right Thing. Eventually.

A quick update on the Colin Cowherd situation: Gelf Magazine is reporting that ESPN Radio' Colin Cowherd plans to give credit to the M Zone for jacking their material on his radio show last week. ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz told the magazine that the credit will be given on Monday's show.

Krulewitz also said that Cowherd admits his e-mails in response to his theft were "an overreaction." That's not quite how I see them—the words "arrogant" and "total dickbag" come to mind—but I guess it will have to do. It's a step in the right direction.

And as I noted the other day, this whole thing really could not have worked out better for the folks at the M Zone. Not only does Cowherd end up giving them the credit that they deserve, but the hits that they've gotten from the controversy have to be just off the charts. Well-deserved for them. And as a special bonus for all of us, Colin Cowherd was served a little public humiliation.
