8.9: PIT/SFG pregame -- Aaron Rowand
Rowand clarifies some statements he made to a Chicago beat writer about his time in SF.
Yeah I know it's an important kids head to kind of clear the air about the article that was in the sun times kind of you know tells me -- that in that clubhouse about. What the article was meant for and intention. Well -- the whole article was written by a friend of mine actually do what I spend my you know my five years and in Chicago with the -- -- and -- -- had a very good relationship with very you know good friends with him this -- articles actually -- the interview was -- six weeks ago. And I think anybody reason knows the whole premise of the article is. About one a little bit of one my my time in Chicago. More mostly about my love for the Chicago Bears. You know I've been a Bears fan since I was about four years old and I'm a huge football fan and you know diehard Bears -- and that's pretty much the premise of the entire interview. And the very end of the article which probably looking back -- judgment -- on -- heart wasn't great to end it with -- Was. Asking about you know not feeling the same about wearing the Chicago the London San Francisco Giants for tonight. You know -- kind of caught off guard by that because the whole interview was about football about Chicago. So I said you know us get back to talking about the Bears and that's that in no way. It was any sort of did songs San Francisco the organization the fans. You know I've been I've been treated great here by the fans and organization. You know at that at times when I've been good and then you know I deserved it ended so yeah. Radio you know there's no excuses about about anything here I've I think I've enjoyed my time here. So. You know hurt for this to come out and -- make me look like. You know I didn't enjoy my time here don't like the fans the city is completely false and it was taken completely out of context. You know by Henry Tillman -- treated on this. And you know like I said in their mind my biggest my biggest gripe about it would be the fact that my relationship with him over the years here I would have expected him to run in Miami and at least ask me what was intended by it and before you were to go write anything. On the matter and for him not to even ask me about it him. And now this whole thing blows up about I don't like my tenth time here which is completely false. I'm standing here having to explain myself.
