The "greatest pitcher in MLB history" appeared on 60 Minutes last night for a 12 minute diatribe of BS with the AGING Mike Wallace. Wallace pandered to Clemens anger all during the interview. The Rocket twitched, gulped -- espoused sincere utter outrage and anger while he defended himself. I for one did not buy it. I have watched many Clemens Interviews over the years. This one was an outrage to the true baseball talent and accomplishments that this man has accrued over a 24 year career with 4 teams. He is lying! He IS angry at a guy who he helped make a millionaire. BUT - there is no defending what Roger did. He did steroids. I was not there when he was plugged in the ass with the drug. BUT - I know in my heart of hearts that Roger Clemens is a cheater. The Rockets Circus of Interviews and media Exposure continues in Houston today. he will appear in another orchestrated news Conference in his home town.
I have said it once - I will say it again -- I am sad and angry at this Man. A man who I appreciated - no matter what uniform he wore. he was always a talent and a demonic force on the hill. When Roger had the pill - he was God-like! Now he has diminished everything in a heap of dung. Damn - what price fame?

"And then everybody's talking about sue, sue sue. Should I sue? Well, let me exhaust. Let me, let me just spend. How about, let's keep spending. But I'm gonna explore what I can do and then I want to see if it's gonna be worth it, worth all the headache." -- Clemens
Don't Hold Your Breath on the Lie Detector Test, Either
- Wallace: How about a lie detector test?
- Clemens: Some say they're good. Some say they're not. Do whatever. I mean—Wallace: So as far as you're concerned you would conceivably?
- Clemens: Yeah. I don't know if they're good or bad.
- Wallace: Were you to pass a lie detector test, would that help prove that you're telling the truth and help restore?
- Clemens: Would it?
- Wallace:I don't know.
- Clemens: I don't either. -- 1.6.08, 60 Minutes
