Hooman Hamzehloui, the Orlando Magic season ticket holder who was ejected for calling Dikembe Mutombo a "monkey" during Thursday night's preseason game, has issued a written apology to Mutombo, claiming he is not a racist and didn't realize that calling a black person a monkey was a offensive.
I was shocked to learn of this story. I mean, Dikembe Mutombo is still playing? I had no idea.
More importantly, I'm thankful that this incident has brought the name "Hooman Hamzehloui" to light. Doesn't saying it make your day a little bit brighter? Try it: Hooman Hamzehloui! It puts me in such a good mood that I want to write "To err is Hooman; to forgive, Dikembe." And then put a fork through my hand for making a pun.
