Personal favorites that I wrote
And what a busy day it was...

Presumably, most people knew that Roger Clemens and Brian McNamee testified before a Congressional committee today. Even had gavel to demagogue coverage of it. The people at Sports Ticker said there was a partisan divide on the panel with the Democrats attacking Clemens and the Republicans supporting Clemens.


Clemens, a Texas-born millionaire, tip-toed around questions from numerous Democrats on the committee, denying multiple claims from McNamee and Andy Pettitte that he used performance-enhancing drugs.

The fact that Roger Clemens was born in Dayton, Ohio should not scare you off I guess. Clemens lives in Texas and grew up there. But he wasn't born there. Unless Dayton, Ohio has been annexed by Texas. (Note to self: Add Dayton to list of cities to visit because a treaty was signed there.)


Also, Andy Pettitte said he used HGH in 2004. And his father gave it to him. My dad never gave me synthetic hormones. I guess he didn't love me enough. Well, back to the therapist I go.

Glenallen Hill and Matt Herges apologized for using HGH. Hill did not apologize for his fielding.

In non-PED news, the Mariners named Erik Bedard as their Opening Day starter before they even started spring training. That will be March 31 in Seattle against Texas.

And Kris Benson takes his reality show life to Philadelphia, or at least spring training with the Phillies, as he was given a minor league contract from the NL East champs.
