Harvey Updyke Calls Paul Finebaum, Apologizes For Something

Oh right, this story. Accused Toomer's Corner tree poisoner Harvey Updyke called Alabama Minister of Sport Paul Finebaum to apologize for nothing in particular. Updyke noted his attorneys would not approve, and when asked for what specifically he was apologizing, he declined to say.

Here's Updyke:

I'm extremely sorry for what I have been accused of doing. I just want to tell the Auburn people that I'm truly sorry for all the damage I've done. I'm not asking for sympathy. All I'm asking is forgiveness. I want the people that's Christians to understand I've done a lot of good in my life. I've never intentionally hurt anybody until this.

Since the Auburn oak trees were poisoned, Updyke has called Finebaum to announce the crime and to share his side of the story. He's also been attacked by a phantom in a gas station parking lot, among other adventures. It's all kind of funny, but mostly just sad.
