TIMING IS EVERYTHING: Le Batard addressed the controversy at the beginning of his ESPN2 show "Highly Questionable" on Thursday, saying, "I regret one portion of this. This is what happens in the modern culture -- you have the negative and it gets accentuated more than the positive. So the part about this that I regret is that I became part of the story yesterday instead of the three guys who, you know, had actually accomplished something. I wish I had waited a couple of days before doing it. That was my biggest mistake" ("Highly Questionable," ESPN2, 1/9).
