Johnny Damon To The NOG: "No Hard Feelings"

Is All Forgiven?
He was the consummate "Idiot" among a gaggle of eccentric players on the 2004 World Championship team. Now, Johnny Damon seems to be ready to "bury the hatchet" with the Red Sox ownership group. Damon had previously revealed that he wasn't on speaking terms with John Henry ever since his departure in 2005—alleging that the Ichabod Crane-like owner wouldn't pay him the free agent booty he deserved. Of course, many members of The Nation still have not forgiven Damon for jumping to The Evil Ones—regardless of the financial issues at play. In any event, here's what Damon has to say about his renewed relationship with Henry, "I know we tweeted out to each other. I have all the respect for the owners in Boston and what they've done. Three championships since they arrived. There's no hard feelings there. Boston's always going to be a great town for me."
