But in typical fashion, he offers no spark of introspection. Nowhere is there a genuine "I'm sorry." As close as he gets is when he writes, "I'm sure that I'm supposed to act all sorry or sad or guilty now that I've accepted that I've done something wrong. But you see, I'm just not built that way. Sure, there's probably some real emotion buried somewhere deep inside. And maybe I'd be a better person if I let that side of my personality come out. But it just doesn't surface too often. So let's leave it like this: I'm sorry it happened, and I'm sorry for all the people, fans and family that it hurt. Let's move on."
This is perhaps the least sincere apology ever. Charlie Hustle is just doing what he became famous for - burrowing blindly ahead. This was enough to make him a great ballplayer, but until he lifts his head long enough to realize what he did was a crime against the sport he loves, he should not be allowed into the Hall of Fame.
