Wednesday morning, Weaver took to Twitter in an attempt to explain himself.
"Now, that I have seen it, I will say that it was hard for me to watch and after thinking about it, I've come to the conclusion that I represented my family, friends and organization the wrong way," Weaver said. "I'm sorry for those words I used and if I offend anyone, please forgive me. To all my fans whom I've disappointed I'm sorry."
The initial comments surprised me because of the way Weaver usually carries himself, but I suppose he deserves the benefit of the doubt. It's entirely possible that, during the conversation, he simply got caught up in what he was talking about and said something he didn't really mean.
If you've ever been on the radio, TV, or given an interview where you know every word is being heard in live time and can be quoted forever, you understand how difficult it can be to think and talk at the same time.
Sometimes, the situation leads to things you will really, really regret later.
"I came off the wrong way," Weaver said, "but I want to explain myself. And I will..."
We look forward to hearing it.
