Joba's repenting

The Daily News has some quotes from Joba Chamberlain at the Police Athletic League dinner last night regarding his arrest earlier this off-season.

"I had to deal with some situations growing up and now I have this situation. It's all part of the growing experience," Chamberlain said before accepting an award from the Police Athletic League Tuesday night at the Grand Hyatt in midtown.

"As a 23-year-old man I am still trying to grow up. We all make mistakes. That is part of being human. I am not trying to hide from it, not trying to run from it. I am going to take the bull by the horns. Everybody makes mistakes, and that's part of growing up."

"It's been a blessing in disguise," Chamberlain said of the incident. "It happened once and it was a mistake, but it allows me to teach kids from my experience."
It's good to hear these words from him. He has a great future ahead of him, and hopefully he won't screw it up.
