Jackson tweeted an apology Sunday after getting into a confrontation with fans outside a downtown Cooperstown restaurant Friday night and unleashing an obscenity-laced tirade.
Tweeted Jackson: A sincere apology for my profanity in public to all fans. Certainly not a way to communicate. Mad or not, no excuse.
Jackson, 69, was signing autographs when he spotted a fan he believed was trying to get multiple signatures.
“I signed for one guy and he ran to the end of the [expletive] line,” Jackson complained. “That’s [expletive] up. Now it’s my time to eat dinner with people I don’t see but once a [expletive] year for 20 years and I’ve got to [expletive] … Listen, it’s dirty, it feels like [expletive], it really does. Stand in [expletive] line tomorrow and pay like everyone [expletive] else.”
As Jackson got into his car, a brief scuffle ensued between a fan and one of Jackson’s security personnel.
Froome won by 1 minute, 12 seconds over Colombia’s Nairo Quintana — who was runner-up to Froome in 2013 as well.
“The Maillot Jaune is special, very special,” Froome said of the famous yellow jersey signifying the race leader. “I understand its history, good and bad. I will always respect it.”
Froome, who was dogged by accusations of doping en route to the title, became the third British winner in four years as he fought off a late charge from Quintana, the 25-year-old who was named best young rider.
“He’s a great rival,” Quintana said of the 30-year-old Froome. “He suffered a lot to win.”
Players interested in representing the U.S. in next summer’s Olympics are expected to attend the Aug. 11-13 minicamp, even if they are not able to participate due to injury.
Previous reports indicated Clippers forward Blake Griffin, Rockets guard James Harden and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, who is recovering from a knee injury, would attend as well. Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson also are expected to appear.
