She tweeted: "Happy to be back at work covering Caps-Isles. Now that the suspension is over, I want to say again that I'm so sorry for my recent hurtful actions. My remarks were completely out of line. Under no circumstances is it ever acceptable to speak to another human being in the manner in which I chose that night. That's not who I am as a person and hope those who only know me from this incident will give me a second chance to prove to you how much I value integrity, character and treating people with respect."

And now, another ESPN broadcaster is in the spotlight for taking a controversial stance over what many are calling the fight of the century, between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Stunning words from Keith Olbermann, who says he's turning his back on the fight because of Mayweather's history of domestic violence.
He said, "I will not promote or watch Mayweather's fight. I will boycott it, and I urge you to as well."
The undefeated Mayweather is ranked the highest-paid athlete in the world, worth an estimated $300 million!
Now, he stands to make another $200 million if he wins the fight this Saturday in Las Vegas, where front-row seats are selling for a staggering $300,000!
ESPN's Stephen A. Smith is catching heat after co-host Cari Champion objected to Mayweather's history of domestic violence.

Smith said, "I'm saying that her position is clear because she's a woman, and this is how she feels he conducts himself. I am a boxing fan. When I'm talking about Mayweather-Pacquiao, I'm thinking about two dudes strictly in the boxing ring. And that's all I'm doing."
Mayweather served two months in prison in 2012 for battering his ex-girlfriend in front of her children but he denied doing it in a recent interview with Katie Couric.
He said, "Did I kick, stomp and beat someone? No, I didn't. I'll look in your face and say it didn't happen. Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? Yes, I did. If they say that's domestic violence, I'm guilty."
One thing that's certain is the richest athlete in the world could be even richer by next Saturday, no matter what anyone says.
