Terry Francona is a frequent guest on Michael Kay's radio show in New York, and when he went on the program a few minutes ago, Kay came right out and asked Francona about this, albeit in a way that didn't mention what this was all about.
Here's how it went down:
MK: Obviously, we just have to touch on this. You're kind of in the news today in a way I'm sure you don't want to be in the news. What's going on, Terry? What are your thoughts?
TF: Yeah, you know what? I took a picture, obviously, a long time ago that was pretty in jest, which I think is pretty obvious. It wasn't portrayed that way. But because of that, you know, I'm going to probably embarrass my family and, you know, all the people I work for, the way it was portrayed. You know, I'm apologetic for that. It was supposed to be in jest; it just didn't come out that way. So, I am sorry, though, because I probably did embarrass some people, and I'm not proud of that.
Aww. No need to apologize, Terry. You're looking good!
