It has come to my attention that some people have taken offense to a few of the comments made by Gerald Swindle over the last week. If there's someone to blame, it's probably me. In selectively quoting Swindle, it may not come across that Swindle's favorite target of ridicule is himself.
Swindle absolutely had the crowd in tears of laughter at Saturday's Nelson Park weigh-in. He is bass fishing's version of a cross between comedians Don Rickles and Eddie Murphy.
But again - Swindle doesn't aim his barbs at anyone or anything else as often as he does himself.
It's all said in fun, although when written in black-and-white it may not come across that way.
That's my fault, not Gerald Swindle's. And I sincerely apologize.
Now back to what appears to be a nail-biting finish to All-Star week.
