Ozzy Osbourne to apologize for urinating on the Alamo in 1982

SAN ANTONIO — Ozzy Osbourne was expected in San Antonio Thursday to visit the Alamo after famously 'desecrating' the site some 33 years ago.
As the famous story goes, the Prince of Darkness was reportedly banned from the Alamo for life on Feb. 19, 1982, after relieving himself on the Alamo Cenotaph, which was constructed in 1939 to honor 189 Texans who died at the historic site.
Osbourne was banned from San Antonio after the incident, allegedly, for the rest of his life. However, the original ban only held for 10 years. He returned in 1992.
Councilman Roberto Trevino made the announcement last night and said Osbourne plans to visit the site with his son, along with a video crew from the History Channel. Trevino offered limited details on his arrival, as they wanted the event to be "low-key."
The rumor mill was buzzing in the days leading up to Osbourne's arrival. Many said that Osbourne was visiting the famous structure to apologize.
But, Osbourne has visited the Alamo City numerous times, and the Alamo itself, already offering up an apology for the incident.
After 1992, Osbourne arrived again in 1995 and 2003. He also returned to the Alamo City in 2013... on a Fiesta medal.
And even before then, Osbourne already expressed his regret and alluded to the notion, in one interview, that he might return one day to "make amends."
