« Roger Clemens Video Where He Speaks About His Steroid Use | Main | Is 2008 Finally the Year Jim Rice Gets in Hall of Fame? »

January 07, 2008



One thing that altheletes and celebraties should realize that "innocent until proven guilty" only applies to a COURT OF LAW. It has no bearing whatsoever in the court of public opinion. Futhermore, the standards of proof for defamation lawsuits are higher for celebraties than for the average person.

I have not been keeping up the the Clemens story, but I do agree that Mr. Clemans has contradicted himself, which is a very big screw up if he sincerely wants to clear his name.

I believe that Roger Clemans did use steroids. The reasons are: 1) His silence for the first week or so. 2) Andy Pettitte has admitted to using Human Growth Hormone. Why would Mitchel lie about Clemens, but be truthfull about Pettitte. 3) To the best of my knowledge, Brian McNamee is under federal indictment for steroid distribution. As I understand it (and I have not verified) is that part of McNamee plea bargin is that he has to tell the complete truth to federal investigators. Why would McNamee lie to federal investigators? The consequences would be harsh. McNamee's plea bargin would be revoked and he could face charges of lying to the feds. That is what landed Martha Stewart in prison.

Chris, your point in 2) is dead on.

Why would McNamee lie about only Clemens using steroids? He was closer with Clemens, and dare I say friends, then any of the other players he indicted in the Mitchell Report. This is ever clear in the taped conversation between them (which I thought was absolutely fruitless).

Those other players, including Clemens best friend, work out partner, and teammate in New York and Houston, Mr. Andy Pettitte, admitted to the truth of the why lie about Roger? Esp. when Brain could face jail time because of it.

It looks like McNamee was just playing ball and tell the truth, while Clemens is the one calling foul, and muddying his rep in the process even more.


Roger Clemens is definitely a liar and bad husband, but he was hell of a ball-player. However Mr. McNamee's transgressions are far worse, he is a traitor and a coward. Roger will find him self in a pit of despair, withering beneath the river of boiling blood. While Brian will find himself in the deepest reaches of Hell, where Satan himself resides. I guess there both f*cked...?

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
