Roger Clemens Did Not Have Sexual Relations With That Woman, Miss Lewinsky

roger-clemensI’m sorry, I think I’m getting Roger Clemens mixed up with someone else. Honest mistake.

Anyhoo, Clemens was on “Mike & Mike in the Morning” on ESPN radio today, and as expected, he denied taking steroids, used the word “misremembers” again and claims it would have been “suicidal” for him to take steroids, given his family’s history of heart trouble.

Blah, blah, blah. But what did you expect? This was Mike & Mike interviewing Clemens – not Ed Bradley – the primary reason being that Bradley has been dead for years, and the last time he was interviewed by someone from 60 Minutes, it didn’t result in the sort of goodwill he anticipated.

Mike and Mike even had a little fun with Clemens, inquiring as to whether he is now retired for good:

“I’ve [retired] three times. Do I need to announce it again? It’s a competition between myself and Brett Favre. If he comes back again, then I’m going to get out and start hitting the pavement.”

Huh. He must incorrectly believe that pavement is Brian McNamee or something. Maybe Mindy McReady, but it’s obviously a case of mistaken identity.
