After being handed a 65-game suspension from Major League Baseball, Brewers slugger Ryan Braun issued the following “my bad, dog”:
As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it is has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers’ organization.
Despite acknowledging “some mistakes” in his injection choices, Braun remained steadfast in his refusal to apologize for his role in the 1992 film, Encino Man.
Encino Man was a powerful statement on the emptiness of our times and the ugly prejudices of the American teenager. My character, Link, showed us, through his child-like amazement at our modern world, the wonders all around us. Most of which we routinely take for granted.
Reporters countered that Encino Man was thoroughly dumb and Braun had done a disservice to society by having participated in its creation. Braun admitted that perhaps it wasn’t the most powerful social statement he’s ever made, but added:
Not every film’s going to be School Ties or Bedazzled. But daddy’s gotta eat. And sure, maybe I’ve made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences. And I hope to find solace for my misdeeds in my millions and millions of dollars.
