Lobel tried to give Ryan a mulligan (at least once) on the remark. Ryan had
more than a brain hiccup there. He passed on the chance to rethink his wording.
Had he done so, such as, "Oh, I didn't mean it as I just said it...." and then
rephrased, he likely would have gotten a pass after a walk to the woodshed. Not
a rookie error.
