In case you've been living under a rock (or perhaps your parents grounded you for some sass-talking and took away both your ESPN and
internet privileges [I assume my target market here is the over 150-crowd
and under-15 kids]), allow me to be the first to tell you that tomorrow night's 60 Minutes
(that's a television show - I'm not sure if the over-150 and under-15 readers know of that program) will feature Roger Clemens
. The Rocket will, of course, be chatting with ol' Mike Wallace about his inclusion on Mitchell's list, taking his "I didn't do it" campaign to prime time.
I will be tuned in with keen eyes and ears, eagerly awaiting what is sure to be a perfectly sensible explanation of why the trainer he shared with Andy Pettitte would lie about the Rocket but tell the truth about Dandy Andy.
Honestly... with all the effort Clemens has put into this denial crusade
, he better either be telling the truth or be 100% positive that no one will dig up all the used syringes he buried in the woods in Texas.Sidenote
, both Clemens and Pettitte have been called to have a little sit-down
with congress about the juicin'. The Clemens testimony should be interesting... but since Dandy Andy has already admitted
to using HGH, it seems to me it might have been a better choice to ask one of the other deniers on the list to the hearings rather than him. What new info is Andy going to provide? What was the motivation behind including him in the hearings? Making it a bigger story? More publicity?
End sidenote. To reiterate, I cannot wait for 60 Minutes tomorrow night. I might even do some "live blogging
" whilst I watch so that I don't miss out on making fun of anything or expressing my incredulity at Roger's explanation - OR on the long shot that he has some crazy evidence that trainer McNamee was out to get him and lied to fire him up (maybe McNamee was blackmailing Clemens with some embarrassing erotic photos and he missed a payment).
