Roger Is So Sorry

...a sorry piece of shit
For the first time in his douchey life, Roger Clemens has given a public apology.

Without getting specific or actually admitting to any reports regarding his alleged HGH use and the affairs with Mindy McCready, dirty strippers, realtors, and fat golfer's ex-wives, the former hurler had this to say,
"I have apologized to my family for my mistakes, and having offered this apology to the public, I would ask that you let me and my family deal with these matters in private."
Fair enough.

Not that I trust anyone on either side of this defamation suit, but Richard Emery, Brian McNamee's attorney, brings up an interesting point,
"I think what it says without saying it is that he apparently admits he cheated on his wife and family. And if he cheated on them, I think it’s reasonable to assume that he cheated his fans and baseball."
As much fun as we poke at Clemens around here, this just isn't even funny anymore. It's kind of tragic. And I'd be willing to bet that Debbie is fricking pissed.

Rand Ball has a great remix of The Rocket's AT&T commercial. Or maybe it's the original?

I cheated on my seventh grade English test on The Last of the Mohicans, so I probably killed a hooker for pleasure. Yes, I love legal theory.

What you do in seventh grade doesn't define you. How you choose to live your life as an adult does. A man who cheats on his wife and children is a dishonest man. Bottom line.

Everyone with any sort of intuition knows Roger is a total douche. Megs, I agree. The logic is, if you're willing to be so dishonest, that you'd hurt the people you are supposed to love the most in the world, than why wouldn't you take that sort of action into other parts of your life? You can't have it all, Roger. Asshole.

It is tragic, but Clemens and McNamee are both idiots. You reap what you sow, they say, and he is reaping it now. I used to look up to him when I was growing up, but now I will never have any respect for him no matter what he does. And this lawsuit should have never happened. Had he just pulled a Pettitte and said, "Yeah, I did some HGH and it was a mistake," we wouldn't be where we are with this right now. Do I think he did steroids? Probably, and no lawsuit is going to change the court of public opinion.

It's especially tragic for the fans. All these people who are in their -somethings who looked up to him as a kid, grew up watching him hit homers, and their loyalty as fans have been returned in the form of a slap in the face.
