The Congressional hearings only made me a little less trusting of Clemens, with his status as a liar and a cheat pretty much confirmed by the things he and others said about him. He’s throwing his wife under the bus about her use of HGH and is now saying that Andy Pettitte’s statement that he and Rog talked about his HGH use was a case of his buddy “misremembering”. He sounds like another Texan with an ego problem with his word choice, although unlike the majority of Bushisms, that is actually a word. Chip’s comment about the Daily Show skewering the party-line questioning from the Republican and Democratic members of Congress is very interesting. It seems that party politics even leak into the way people perceive what the Rocket has been up to.
Clemens even makes that weasel Brian McNamee seem honest and trustworthy, even though keeping dirty needles, gauze and vials of HGH is just downright weird. In his defense, McNamee claims he did so because he mistrusted Clemens, which is something he and I see eye to eye on. The other thing that just blows me away is that Clemens refuses to understand how damning what Andy Pettitte said about him really is. Pettitte and Clemens were tight for years in
McNamee actually summed it up pretty well when he said that he injected three people with steroids or HGH, two have confirmed it (Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch) and the third is Roger Clemens, who continues to squirm. That’s this story in a nutshell if you ask me.
I mentioned that I would get to the Jason Kidd to
Kobe Bryant is going to miss the All-Star game this weekend and potentially 6 weeks with a torn ligament in his pinky finger. If you know me, then you know I think
I think that Monta Ellis of the Warriors is my new favorite player. If you watched the Suns/Warriors game the other night, the kid is a human dynamo. His pull-up jumper is in seemingly every time and he drives the lane with incredible ease. I know that the Suns don’t exactly have the league’s best D, but Ellis was carving them up without breaking a sweat. He’s only 6’3”, but this high-school-to-the-pros
I think that’s it for now. Keep your eyes focused on the Hip because I’m not slowing down anytime soon.
