Ten-Sion


I'm really not interested in whether Roger Clemens took steroids, but this morning there is some huge tension in Congress where Clemens and his former trainer are testifying and sitting at the same table. (Sidenote: Congress has that much free time?)

Clemens says the trainer never injected him with steroids. The trainer says he did. Somebody's lying. Big time.

And this gem came from the trainer a moment ago: "I told the investigators I injected three people -- two of whom I know confirmed my account. The third is sitting at this table."

Clemen's head might explode right in front of the cameras.

Lets stop and think about this...if you are a Plumber your going to have the best tools for the trade, a attorney the best education and homework for the case, and if I make my living w/ my body i will do whatever it takes to perform at a higher level...and do we really need the goverment to get involved..and before all the Soccor Moms get there Panties in a wad, let me assure you steroids and HGH has been around in baseball for YEARS and we will never stop it, as soon as they get close there will be another designer strain implemented. I think testing should be done at the High school level, but as a adult we should be able to choose...if you can lap ban you stomach w/ the risks involved to get smaller, we should be able to get larger without any concern of yours..

Since all that seems to matter in this country these days is how Brit is doing, whether baseball players cheated, and who is the next American Idol...all these hundreds of thousand of people losing their jobs and homes should try to say "hey, I know I can't pay my bills, but can I get an extension based on the fact I know what Brit is up to?" How long before we accomplish total joblessness and have to actually feed and clothe ourselves with nothing but what we get from the tabloids.

Actually, good points, both y'all anonymouses!

My view is, this guy McNamee was pressured to throw 'em a rilly big fish to avoid jail. He happens to have picked the wrong guy. Roger F'n Clemens ain't goin down like that. Whether he dosed or not -- and I think it's at least plausible that he of all people didn't, besides which McNamee is only saying he did it a half dozen times over several years, which would be like taking a single multivitamin (you have to take the stuff consistently over a long period of time for it to have any effect) -- so whether he dosed or not, he's NEVER, EVER going to admit it or be trapped into saying he "maybe" did or whatever, especially not with such hearsay/flimsy-ass "evidence". You mess with the bull, you get the horns.

One says black and the other says white. One is maybe telling the truth, the other is lying. One is going to jail. Which one do you believe?

Great post 11:40.....

What do we prioritize in this country?

Beauty, sports, sports, beauty, beauty, sports, sports, beauty.

Heck no we aren't gonna change. This stuff is fun and makes money.

Why is this even a Congressional matter? Why is it a CRIMINAL matter? Let the sports govern themselves (if they care), and let the government discuss "guvmint" stuff, not sports. This is stupid.

Roger is the new Britney.

Nope, don't need the government in this, but plenty happy with mandatory, abundant testing for everything you can test for.

In a court of law like the one I served on the jury in Fort Worth:

Prosecution:
Mr. Pettite, what do you know about Mr. Clemens and steroids?

Mr. Pettite:
Mr. Clemens told me that he took HGH.

Defense
Objection - hearsay!

Judge:
Sustained!

At a party where the guys were drinking beer, Roger Clemens told some people that he took steriods.

Yeah, and I told them that I have dated Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, and Hannah Montana!
