09:27 AM ET 09.15 | On second thought: Bobby Valentine backed off comments he made last week that the Yankees were missing in action "AWOL" -- after 9/11. "It was a mistake," Valentine said in an interview scheduled to air Sunday on NBC Sports Radio's Speaking of Sports. "I was asked my opinion. I'm not saying all my opinions are correct. I'm not saying all my opinions are fair." Valentine tells host Rob Simmelkjaer that since he made the comments Wednesday on WFAN's "Benigno and Roberts Show" he has seen pictures of Yankee players helping in the community after 9/11. "When I was doing whatever it was I was doing (at the time) I didn't see what else was going (on)," Valentine said.

Well, at least he has the wherewithal to admit he's an idiot. But the damage is done. Nobody in baseball is going to want his big mouth on their staff in any capacity.

Once an idiot............



Always an idiot.........

Bobby has a history of regularly opening his mouth before engaging his brain.

In Bobby V's world even 9/11 is all about him.

This is all to boost the sales of the "Yankee 9/11 Wrap" at his CT restaurant...20 hot dogs with mustard wrapped in an American flag and served with an egg cream.

True, but it's all good now.

I wouldn't be surprised if V Wrap put on the glasses and a fake moustache and went on the air to criticize that loser Bobby Valentine.
