Hats off for poor Roger Clemens. He sat in front of a battery-powered television in his mansion on Sunday to watch the Yankees pay tribute to their greatest players expecting to see himself included among the greats. D’oh. No Roger. He got nothing and didn’t like it.
“[Wife] Debbie and I held his hand while we watched the game, and he was heartbroken,” said [mother-in-law Jan] Wild, 70. “Not mad. He still loves baseball and the Yankees, but it was sad what they did to him.”
Hopefully his steroid-juiced heart won’t explode from the heartache. All we need is Suzy Waldman screeching like a chain-smoking banshee about the injustice of it all. Strangely Joe Torre was not included in the video tribute as well.
Now I didn’t watch a minute of the Yankee circle jerk on Sunday because the NFL immediately supersedes anything baseball-related. I also have no time for tributes to what really is a shit hole. Let’s be honest. Yankee Stadium is a dump. Good riddance. I mean it’s no Shea Stadium but it’s not the greatest sporting venue known to man. Some would have us think it’s more important that the Roman Coliseum.

The NY Daily News is reporting that Roger Clemens had a 10 year affair with country music star Mindy McCready that started when she was just 15 years old. At the time Clemens was 28 years old and pitching for the Red Sox, with a wife and two kids. They are also reporting that Clemens denies their friendship was of a sexual nature, but admits that they were friends during that time period.
“He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her,” [Clemens attorney Rusty] Hardin said. “He’s considered her a close family friend. … He has never had a sexual relationship with her.”
Hardin said the Rocket’s wife, Debbie, knew McCready and that the singer had traveled on his plane.
Riiiiiight Roger. I know a ton of professional athletes that consider 15 year old girls to be close personal friends and allow them to fly on their personal planes all the time without having to give any sexual favors whatsoever. It’s practically standard practice in the MLB isn’t it? Isn’t it?? Anyway, if he was giving the bone to a 15 year old girl with stars in her eyes, the emotional damage that usually follows might explain some of the reasons why McCready is so messed up as a human being to this day. If you don’t know, McCready has quite a storied past including identity theft, assault and battery, DUIs, a drug overdose, a suicide attempt, and parole violation. She apparently is addicted to Oxycontin (an opiate) and served a year in jail for her parole violation. That’s her in a glamorous
photoshoot mugshot there. Hottie fo’ sho’, well maybe she was when she was 15. Ew…lets not think about that.
Roger is sure gonna have some ‘splaining to do and more denials just isn’t cutting it. It’s tough to believe every single story that has been written about this guy has been wrong or misremembered or whatever. It just smells off to me, bad news is all around this guy lately. Say what you will about Barry Bonds, but at least there are no stories about that guy doing this to a girl.
