Luis Suarez Apologizes for Biting Player

Anytime a high-profile athlete screws up, you can be rest assured that there's an apology coming. Case in point, shamed Uruguay soccer star Luis Suarez. Days after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in a World Cup match and being slapped with a nine-match suspension and four-month FIFA ban, Suarez tweeted an official apology statement on his Twitter account Monday. "I deeply regret what occurred. I apologise to Giorgio Chiellini and the entire football family. I vow to the public that there will never again be another incident like this." We hope he's finally done biting into the competition, as this is his third offense. And just like Suarez, athletes mess up — whether it's getting into legal trouble or blatantly breaking their respective sport's rules. Almost always, an apology follows. Here, BET.com takes a look at the biggest apologies in sports. Sorry! (Photo: Claudio Villa/Getty Images)
