Carmelo: Google's SportsApologies Widget Works Great!

Apr 16, 2008



Denver
- Does Google’s just launched SportsApologies widget work? Just ask Denver’s Carmelo Anthony. “I didn’t know what to say when I got nailed for the DUI,” said the Nuggets' all-star forward. “At first, I even had my lawyer apologize for me. Boy, that didn’t work! Then someone turned me on to Google’s SportApologies widget.
 
“It’s easy! All you do is punch in your sport, and whatever it is you got busted for, and up pops a perfect apology. Slam dunk, problem over. This is the greatest gift to professional athletes I’ve ever heard of.”
 
The slogan for Google’s SportsApologies? "Don’t fidget, we got a widget."

"I thought widgets were just short people," said Anthony, "wow, did I learn a lesson!"
 
“I only wish SportsApologies had been around when I got into trouble,” said baseball’s Pete Rose. “I’d be in the Hall of Fame instead of having to scribble autographs at card shows to put food on the table.”
 
A spokesman for SportsApologies said that Carmelo Anthony’s situation is “precisely what our mission is about.” And, presumably, why the prescient folks at Google bought the company for a figure reported to be over $2.2 billion dollars three months ago.
 
Google refused comment on the purchase price for “S.A.” but a representative did say that serious negotiations are in progress to purchase CelebrityApologies.com and PoliticalApologies.com.
 
“Really, today’s market is unlimited for apologies,” said the Google rep.
